    This bass is not in new shape but not bad either. The finish is "blonde," which is essentially olympic white that is thin enough to show the grain. There are stains under the finish, possibly from sap seeping out of the end grain. The strap buttons have been replaced with straplocks and the nut was replaced (a little rough on the sides but the string grooves are good). The pickups and electronics are original, the pick-gaurd was replaced in the 70's with a fender replacement. The bridge and all covers are original. The neck is original and in great shape. The bass weighs in at 10.4 pounds. The case is in pretty good shape and I have the key.

    According to the Fender website, this serial number means that it is a 1976, made in Fullerton CA. The serial number on the neck plate means that it was made in the first half of 1976 since they switched to serial numbers on the headstock in July of that year. There are no date stamps on the neck or in the neck pocket, but this was standard practice when these were made (again, according to Fender). I put this bass on layaway at Lomakin Music in Pittsburgh, in May of 1976 and picked it up July 3rd 1976.


    I would prefer to sell to someone in the Boston area so you can be thoroughly satisfied but would be glad to ship it for the actual cost of shipping. If purchased soon, I can deliver anywhere between Boston and NYC Prefer Paypal.
