    Just finished bringing it back to almost new like condition. I am not really into the relic thing(real or not) so I replaced the PG screws and barrel knobs, added new covers and thumbrest and pickups covers w\screws(all OEM Fender parts), also replaced the original bridge with a Gotoh 203B, identical specs to the original, straplocks and with a little elbow grease cleaned up the tuners, gave the bass a good polishing and setup with Fender black tapes.

    The bass was in real good condition, minor things like rusted screws and the bridge chrome was peeling pretty bad and a few little body and neck dings here and there but no real problems. Here a pic of the bass from the TBer I got it from:
