    Very cool modern p bass 60th anniversary model

    Butterscotch blond/ natural finish
    Brown Tortoise shell pickguard
    8.6 lbs
    Hipshot tuners

    Just got this beauty today and gave it a once over and jammed it for a bit

    Loud acoustically which is always a good sign.

    The pots are a bit scratchy and the pan pots particularly needs to get hit with some deoxit. The back pickup cuts out intermittently full humbucker back position until it is fiddled with. I didn’t have the energy to open it up and poke around but I did confirm that the 18v two batteries were good so it is just a wiring/clean up job needed.

    I cleaned her up with polish and hit the fretboard with guitar honey conditioner which gave it a nice darker sheen.

    Good news is it has strap locks.
    Bad news is the back strap button looks like it was repaired. I think I will need to be repaired again.

    I have taken a ton of pictures and tried to capture everything I think you would want to see.

    No case or gig bag

    Great bass, I used to own one exactly like it. Although I believe the correct color is amber.

    THE preamp is surprisingly natural sounding. The bass boost just adds more and not immediate boom like cheap pres

    Just jammed her at lunch. Very cool humbucker with bass boosted its very “flea”. The harmonics with treble boosted are amazing as well but you have this big body big neck five bolt solid foundation under it. Great tones! Pm me with offers and we can discuss how soon you will be playing her!

    Abalone dot inlays!

    I have been playing this bass even all the way on the humbucker and it does work now but should be hit with deoxit or have the wiring looked at. It works intermittently.

    The back strap button also works as I have been wearing it without a problem. It could definitely be redone.

    But these issues don’t change the fact that the smooth poly neck is one of the best I have played and the electronics are so responsive (think nordstrand).

    Great hipshot tuners are super smooth.

    This was $1800 in 2007 (according to the original owner I bought it from)

    That is like $2100 now so think American vintage or American elite line as far as quality
