    Finally! It's taken two visits from the tech to get new computer, printer scanner etc. to get along. Now that they do, here are some pics of the '64 Pbass in CAR that I picked up last week.

    I've gone through most of it and it's now getting the pots and jack serviced. I'll also have to take some time to remove the black paint from the pickguard and then I can put all back together. Can't wait!

    Wasn't this the one that had a maple neck in the original post? That's rosewood.... ;-)

    Knobs are unoriginal, as are the pots, I think. And the headstock face looks refinned and re-decaled. Is that the original white guard under that black paint? And check those pickup codes! They look newer.

    And the intonation must be way way off set like that!

    Yes, but I corrected my mistake in the original post a few days ago.

    Yes to knobs. I have originals for install.

    No to pots. No to headstock.

    Yes to white PG. As stated, I have the materials to remove the black back to the white.

    Intonation is the last thing that I'll be doing.

    Never saw a CF2 on a CTS or Stackpole pot. What's the rest of the number?

    Very cool, man! The pickups could be original grey-bottoms from what I can see. 64 was the first year of the grey bottoms. They should have hand-written dates underneath.

    That paint wear is AWESOME

    After talking with the tech, I stand corrected on the pots and jack. He confirmed that, although they've been in the bass for a long long time, they are not original to the bass. Since I was having an issue with those and they are not original, I decided to get him to replace all three with quality parts rather than trying to get those to work properly. Based upon what the seller told me and comparing pics of the open bottom, I guessed that they were original with unknown numbers. Unfortunately, the seller was not completely accurate.

    So, on we go. Looks like I'll be spending a very nice Saturday in the South working on getting that black paint off of the PG.

    Thanks for everyone's input.

    I love the original paint wear as well.

    There is something written on the bottom of the PUs, but I can't make it out. When I get the body back from the tech, maybe I can see a little more.

    Yes, it's like it was strung for a lefty with the saddles set like that!
