    SOLD! to Bencue73

    I built this '66 replica after lusting for a similar bass at Gruhn's when I moved to Nashville. It is period-correct in every way. Light relic... closet classic. The relic'ing is very mild and is more an indicator of age than wear.






    A couple of pics with the flash to show the lacquer checking...





    Bound n blocked AllParts neck
    Vintage-routed alder body in Shoreline Gold nitro lacquer
    Custom scatter-wound alnico pickups
    Period-correct wiring and PIO tone cap
    Bakelite knobs and tug bar
    Period-correct nickel hardware, lightly aged

    A new tweed case with gold lining will arrive Thursday, and I can ship Friday morning.

    $780 shipped to conUS

    Has the back of the neck been aged or reliced? Also, weight?

    The back of the neck is not aged. It has a smooth satin finish.

    Weight: 8.9lbs
