This is a nice one. May need a neck reset eventually (they all do), but this one is certainly still comfortable to play. The low E action at the 12th fret is around 7/64ths of an inch according to my StewMac string height ruler. Electronics all work fine - this bass sounds huge. Lots of low end, and of course there's that McCartney thump. All original as far as I can tell. There is some tarnish on the metal parts, but that is to be expected on a bass of this vintage. There are a few finish cracks too, but again - that's par for the course. This one is in remarkably good shape for its age. Also comes with what I'm fairly certain is the original hardshell case. If it weren't for the tarnish on the metal latches on the outside of the case (all of which work perfectly), I'd think the case was much newer than it is - the interior is very very clean, no smell. Looking for PRICE DROP $1200 Shipped/Paypal'd to the Continental US. Sorry, no overseas buyers on this one. Slightly lower price for an in-person deal here in Atlanta GA. As far as trades - probably not, but try me. I'm a fan of Rickenbacker guitars and basses, MIJ/MIA Gretsch, Epiphone Elitist Casinos.... do you sense a theme here?
