Equipped with a Fender '62 pickup (I installed it) and an Allparts 250k wiring harness. The cavity was sheilded with paint. The neck is really cool. Has a really low action. No buzzes, no issues. There are some small clear coat dings on the neck, but nothing you can feel while playing. The body is ok but has a rough place on the thin edge right above the arm cut. I don't know if it came from the factory like that or it was painted over (I cannot tell!) The pic doesn't show it but it is there. Also, someone put another pickguard on it. Underneath the original are another set of screw holes. It will ship in a used box, 50x18x5, weighing about 15lbs. There are no "handling" charges. I have gigged with this bass, I am selling it to fund a nice 4x10.
