    Very nice matching semi-loaded body and neck (remember, these use the squared neck pocket, so they're made for each other). Includes classic chrome control plate with knurled knobs, side-mounted jack plate, neck plate (w/ etched star), black Planet Waves strap buttons (my personal fave), and string tree. Does NOT include pickup, pickguard, tuners (70s vintage style, HB2-type), or bridge.
    —Neck width at nut: 1-5/8" (minus a hair)
    —Neck thickness at 1st fret (not including fret): 27/32".
    —Weight of all components described, assembled: 7.4 pounds.
    Clean, 8.5/10 condition. Zero fret wear. Straight paint crack on inside of lower cutaway starting at neck pocket, but no paint missing. No major dings on neck or body, consistent with careful use. Thumb rest installed on bass side between pickup and bridge—very useful placement. Will ship in a Road Runner gigbag. Lock solid, a worthy platform for a custom build. Get your retro on! Uses modern split Precision pickup.
    $325 shipped, CONUS only. Buyer takes all. Avoiding trades.

    Body as pictured: $175.
    All prices shipped CONUS.

    It's almost unphotographable. It's inside of the lower cutaway, extending from the corner of the neck pocket. That's all I can say. You won't see it unless you're looking for it.

    Are there holes for a pick guard?

    Yes. All pickguard holes are in their normal places, none added or subtracted.

    I am getting really close to relieving you of this. How are the frets and the back of the neck?? If you can get me some good shots of the frets and neck back I see you selling this. Thanks!!!

    Like I have said: not perfect, but very clean. It's just good stuff.
