    I picked this up a few years ago in the most terrible shape you can imagine.

    attachment.

    A friend offered to refinish it in yellow enamel so I let him do it. It's not a pro job, but it's a hundred times better than it was. It has some chips around the neck pocket and along the bottom edge. There is also some wood missing along the treble side of the 11th fret. You can see it in the pics. There's also a new pickguard, thumb rest, electronics, and pickup cover along with a rewound/repaired pickup (work done by Fezz Parka). The original Fender serial number stickers that were under the old pickguard are now in place on the new pickguard. I also made a sticker for the back of the headstock that has the serial number on it. Also made the volume control a push-pull pot so when it's pulled out the .1 cap is cut out which adds more depth to the sound. Includes non-original gigbag. I noticed this morning that there is some fretting out around the 15th fret. The missing wood at the 11th fret doesn't seem to be noticeable while playing. As a result, I'm going to drop the price to $350 shipped.

    I dig the new color choice. A little too pricey for me, especially in the condition it's still in though. Good luck with the sale anyway.

    Interested in any trades?

    If only this were in range of my VERY limited spending quota... I actually really dig the finish and black pg.

    Bump for a good looking bass.

    Would you consider selling just the loaded body?

    I'd rather sell the whole thing. Thanks for asking, though!
