    Hi everyone - I'm relatively new to being active on this community, but I've learned a ton from it over the years.

    I believe there are some people here who appreciate this specific bass, and I hope one of y'all will give it a good home where it will be properly enjoyed. I've owned this bass since the mid '90s, and I believe I bought it from the original owner. It's still a really good instrument, but I'm looking for something else (and am in need of a five string).

    The instrument is in very good condition for something that's at least 34 years old. All of the electronics are original. The cavities have been lined with metal tape and I added a thumb rest which I know slightly changes the appearance. There is some minor chipping on the headstock and I noticed one tiny ding on the face of the body. The bridge is visually showing its age but is fully functioning. It has the original knobs, but one of the F logos was lost long ago. Three is a scratch on the back (visible in the picture), and the cardboard over the electronics panel is definitely showing its age and might need to be replaced in the near future.

    Sale includes the original hard shell case, as well.

    I'm more than happy to answer any questions or take measurements if that will help.

    Price does not include shipping. My wife sends her artwork all over the world, and we will work together to ensure it is properly packed, shipped, and insured.

    Thanks! And yes, I did add a Fender thumbrest and should have put that in the description. To my knowledge everything else is original.
