    There are a handful of blemishes and imperfections. I played this bass out on the road a bit and it had a couple of imperfections when I got it from Watson back in 2010. I found them to be minor in nature but definitely want to disclose. Some I can get pics of and some don't seem to show up no matter what I do!

    Looks like a file mishap or something right on the edge of the fretboard at the end of the upper bout. You can also see where the finish didn't quite make it to the edge of the fretboard on the top/low side. The little sliver of no finish runs from about the mid of the 11th fret up to the 13th where the bout meets the fretboard/neck. You can see this in the photo, "blem1".

    Similar sliver of missing finish on the other side of the neck between frets 17 and 21. You can see this in the photo "blem2".

    Pics show a little exaggerated as I zoomed in pretty close.

    Buckle rash ... check!

    The finish wears shinier around the top/bottom of the strings in front of the neck pickup and there are a few scuffs here and there. All of which I can't seem to photograph well (or at least they don't show in the pics). :/

    PM/Convo for offers please. I'm selling to thin out my herd for funds. Thanks for looking!

    Let me see if I can find a recording with that bass and if you're interested, we can work something out for PayPal.
