    Closet classic. Super nice shape for a 40 year old bass. Looks to be all original. Frets are great. neck is nice.and truss rod works as it should. Some minor checking if held up to light. 10.9 to 11 pounds but that's on a bathroom scale that's old. So give or take.I Put a new set of fender 9050 strings on and it plays and sounds great. I just got this yesterday at a estate sale. Comes with case that's beat but ok. 1 latch needs to be put on. No other parts were in the case. So ask as many questions as you want. Shipping $50 to USA only.

    Sweet! What are the pickup dates? The pots are from mid-late '80. It's likely one of the thousands of S8 decals that were used up until '83. ;-)

    How aggressive is the tone on this one? I am a bit of a late 70s Bass fan.

    The tone is more mellow yet a bit of a punch. For sure has a vibe

    If My FSR Ash US Precision sells, I’ll be all over this.

    Great price. Just traded mine in Chicago for the same price. A 1977 P, black/black.
    Good luck!
