I Purchased this bass in Asheville North Carolina from its original owner who used it playing folk music throughout the Northeast. I love this bass and wouldn't be selling it if it were not for having to get my teeth worked on. Another reason, to be honest, why the bass is going up for sale is that it's too darn clean. I'm always worried about scratching it. The original owner had some sort of protective backing on the instrument that was removed before I purchased it. It does have some wear on the lower horn and body, but the wear is from the original hardshell case not providing enough cushion over the years. Therefore when I ship the bass, I Will probably have to ship it in a gig bag or newer case, and ship the 0HSC separately. The original owner installed an extra string tree for the A string which I have removed. It left a small hole. Also it did not come with the original bridge pick up ash tray. Thats it. Everything else is stock.
