I'm not anxious to sell to this bass and don't have to but am putting it out there and am willing to sell if for the price I want. It is all original '68 Tele Bass in extremely rare Lake Placid Blue faded to a beautiful green. You don't see these too often. Only thing not original as far as I can see is the white Pickguard which is common on these metallic colored basses...the Pickguard would disintegrate over time and color would change to a green except for under guard. August 1968 neck date stamped on butt end. The bridge ashtray/cover was put on incorrectly way back and you can see as color faded around it. This beauty has been played and it shows...a natural true relic from the past and its a work of art and still plays beautifully! This is a rare beauty! Comes with OHSC. $7000 shipped CONUS and NO LESS or I'll keep her and Not looking for trades for her. I usually am always up for a good trade but the thing is I absolutely Love this Bass and can't think of much else Bass-wise Id rather have but I could use some $ at the moment(but not desperate) so thats why I'm just putting it out there and would consider letting it go for asking price otherwise I'll be beyond happy to keep her.
