    There is an issue with the neck necessitating a major price drop and lost $$ for me.

    Revising this thread with a price drop, and a disclaimer in the interest of full disclosure. Upon a more detailed inspection of the bass, and verification of my observation by a local luthier, there is a very slight rise beginning at the 17th fret which cause buzzing on high notes when action is set low. Attempts to correct this via truss adjustment have not been successful. It will require more intensive work and/or fret level to correct the problem. The bass plays great on the lower frets. I will take a loss on this bass and drop the price to $350 shipped, which I think is fair for this classic bass in need of some work. 34 inch scale, P bass neck specs (1.75 inch at the nut, 19mm spacing). Bass is reasonably light, 9 lbs. on my bath scale, and balances well. Neck has the older bass broken-in feel, all electronics function right, Schaller tuners, truss is functional. Has cheap paint job, not sure of body wood, but it is pretty light. Appears to have an ebony board with some nice lighter brown highlights, jumbo frets. 10 inch radius on the board. Will ship well-packed in a cheap gig bag.

    $350 shipped in CONUSA only.
