    This is a beautiful Italian Made classic bass, extremely playable, with a wide variety of very usable sounds in perfect working order. Passive Baldwin PUs Cosmetically there are one or two very tiny dings and the tuners have oxidized, but it is in breathtaking shape for a bass of that age. Strung with newish TI flats.

    Good for a collection, but even better as a gigging bass.

    No case, but will be packed to withstand nuclear attack.

    Selling because I have too many basses and it just doesn't get played.

    Priced at less than my cost, but priced firm. No trades, please.

    $950 including shipping in the lower 48.

    P.S. If anyone has more history on the bass, please chip in

    There is nothing wrong with the bridge pickup. Just a reflection.

    This is a model 704. The seller told me it was from '65, but some sites say the instrument was made between '67 and '70.
    In response to a question, it is all original.

    Thanks, Justin.

    It doesn't look like Ol' Baldy is going to move here. One last bump.
