Found it local. It's natural alder/tort/ rosewood. The seller says it's all original but he isn't the original owner. I'm a little skeptical but for only $350 I couldn't pass it up. It plays well but looks rough, which is how I like them. It's missing one knob, both covers and the finger rest. I think it might have been refinished because it's alder and because the finish isn't holding up very well. I had a '73 natural that was ash and had a very high gloss. This one is pretty ragged. After I clean it up a little I'll put some pictures on here. I'm trying to decide whether to hold on to it or not because I have another P that sounds similar. For now can anyone help me answer these questions? 1) How do I date it? The serial number is 324xxx. There is no date in the neck pocket. J.Torres stamped his name in there instead. 2) How do I tell if it's been refinished? 3) Where do I find a deal like this on a jazz bass?!
