I've been trying to restore my girlfriends old Musicmaster bass, but I just don't have the time and she doesn't have any interest in bass (too busy with her piano). The neck is in amazing shape save that it needs a little fret redressing and a new nut. The tuners look their age but turn smoother than any tuning pegs I've dealt with in a while. The majority of the rest of the bass is in pretty rough shape. The body was "refinished" by the previous owner, apparently they sanded with with a nail file and then spray painted it black. I've sanded a lot of the black off and smoothed a lot of the rough sanding but it still needs a bunch of work. You can see the original finish was Olympic White. I'm afraid any original serial numbers or markings were obscured or destroyed by the original owner. The pickup and pots are pretty old and could use some TLC, a new cover for the p/up and a good cleaning for the pots. The pickup is DAMN LOUD by the way, easily double the output of my DM model J's(not kidding). The bridge is ok, but most of the screws are corroded badly. And the pickguard is pretty ugly. I will consider offers for individual parts as well as the whole lot. The serial number from the neck plate is the only thing I have to eastimate the date of the instrument with. I will also take trade for any half decent parts to build a jazz bass with, or even a MIM/MIJ jazz. Sorry, I don't have any pics right now, my camera is on loan to my folks for a week.
