    This is a 1979 Vintage Music Man Sabre bass guitar with original case. All parts on this bass are original except for the strap buttons. Paint is original, bridge stamped serial number (C001535), neck and body date stamps (Jun 1979), pickups and potentiometers (R1377919 = CTS USA, 19th week of 1979) have all been verified correct.

    This vintage bass is Used but in Good Condition (Very Good Condition if you consider the age).This bass has been played regularly and shows normal cosmetic wear from use; the fingerboard finish has some wear through, the original frets have some grooves (none that hamper playability), there are minor finish nicks and scuffs on the body and some very light, surface level finish wear on the back of the neck. The back of the neck is smooth, the truss rod turns smoothly, the action has been professionally set low and the bass plays beautifully. The original case is included; the exterior has some scuffs and the interior smells like a stoner (patchouli, weed, Febreze, etc); it still does the job. :)
