    I'm not sure what the pickups are, sorry. Also, the asking price is $3500
     
  3. Any pics with the pickup cover removed and neck date?

    I don't, sorry. If it's not too hard I could try and do it. Is it tough?

    You take off the strings, then unscrew the 4 screws in the back where the neck meets the body. You should see a date stamped on the heel or rear of the neck, hopefully with a 66 on it ;)

    Where are you located?

    I will do that first thing in the morning. Right now I am in Dallas because of the death in my family. I live in Greensboro NC though and will be back there on Sunday. It's here in Dallas with me now and I'd rather not have to ship it back home.

    So,I guess you decided to forego the appraisal. Expect a lot of questions and requests for photos of the neck, body and electronics.

    I didn't know they did brass nuts in the 60's? Cool bass, the 666 on the neck plate is, umm, interesting :)

    You're right, they didn't. I forgot to mention those aren't original.

    So your plan is to sell it and ship it from Dallas between now and this coming Sunday before you return home? Sounds a little rushed to me. How would a prospective buyer contact you and conform things like your home address, phone number and also that they aren't going to send you 3 or 4 grand and end up with nada in return?

    Ideally. It's very easy, just ask.

    Very nice looking - but as others have indicated - you'll need to post way more pics of most everything. Back of the head stock including tuning keys, close-up front of the headstock, part numbers for pots and wiring to start with. Also, do you still have the original pick-ups and bridge? Best of luck, and if you'd rather bring it home to Greensboro with you, you could make a short stop on I-85 in Gastonia where I am. I too have an April '66 P-Bass in Olympic white with tort pickguard that I bought new in Charlotte.:D

    I believe it is already sold. I live right off I-85 (I'm actually in High Point, not G'boro.) If I were driving in I would love to stop by, but unfortunately I am flying into PTI.

    If anything happens and he doesn't purchase, I will post more pics.
