    Allparts brand made in USA, 51 Tele body, loaded, i think it has a thin nitrocellulose finish- you can feel the grain slightly. I think most would say its not perfect but i like it as is- really unique color/grain- wish i could keep it but i'm funding another project. I'm not sure of the pickup installed but i think its a SD Antiquity 1 - i have a thread in the pickups section asking to help identify it- no word yet. Pickguard is slightly imperfect but hard to notice- the fit where it meets the control plate. Also the pickguard screws are not all identical but look and work just fine. Overall a cool bass project for upgrades or as is. $165 shipped obo

    According to the Allparts website, it looks like swamp ash but I have no way of knowing unless someone has an idea...

    I pushed my digital kitchen scale to the limit and it was about 6.3 lbs loaded if its accurate. I'll double check it with my neighbor's human scale when I get a chance.

    Payment pending. Here is a pic of under the pickup. I'll take the other pics if the deal falls through. The finish is pretty consistent under the pickguard as i recall- havent looked in years tho.
