    Damn! I once owned her bigger sister, a '78 with 34" scale. Always wished that bass had the 32" instead. Damn!

    :help:
     
  5. series 1 for 3750?

    wow what a steal!
     
  6. Speaking as a multiple Series bass owner, $3750 is a very fair price for a Series 1 in this condition (I've seen several go for $1000 more lately) and less than 10 pounds is unusually light. Both of my small-body basses weigh more than this one.
     
  7. Oh My Goodness!~

    That is one awesome instrument! Killer Price!

    Very nice bass. Have the electronics had the upgrade?

    I think it's all original, but I've never had problems with RF or noise.


    electronics.

    Very possible. I have a S-2 that is still original and I have no problem with RF on it either.

    If you don't mind me asking why are you selling it? It is such a nice bass.

    That's a real piece of history there. Good luck with the sale. :)

    I miss my '75 SI sometimes.

    Bump for one of the classics of the bass world.
