    1973 Fender P Bass. This is highly modified. Neck, tuners and body are original. The frets were recently replaced and used less than a couple of hours. Fret job is top of the line and excellent. The neck is straight and adjustable. The body was refinished in black at some point in the late 70’s. The original color appears to me to be sunburst. The wear is natural and gives off a very cool effect. The body also has a number of screw holes on the back that were filled, but blends in well with the wear. These holes were for some sort of body strap way in the past. The pickups were replaced with 70’s Dimarzio pu’s. The bridge was replaced with a Badass.

    This is a great playing bass, lightweight with great tone.

    Comes with a very nice Contego gig bag.

    New that question was coming! My pick of the pots wasn’t clear enough to get the numbers, so I will have to take off the guard and look when I get the chance. Will let you know!

    Hey Gummbi, you went with medium jumbo or vintage fret wire?
