Did some trading, and picked up B006637. A previous owner for some reason decided he would refinish the neck, refret it, and refinish the body. They did a decent job on the neck refin, and the frets, no complaints. The body however, is another story. All the pickguard holes were plugged and filled, and it was painted an ugly purple color, metallic prune I guess. The guy I got it from was told it was originally a sunburst bass, but after stripping it, it was obvious it wasn't from the traces of white paint, and the big green mismatched plank of wood they decided to use in the middle of the body. I decided after all of the refinishing that has been done, that this unfortunately isn't much of a collectors item. I went ahead and finished stripping it. Numerous hours of sanding, more sanding, and a few coats of casey birchwood tru-oil, we're done for now, until I decide to spend the money on a pro refin to it's original white finish. My guard for it wont be here until the end of the week, so I sat my old sterling guard on it to show what it should look like. A great deal better than the purp, and good enough for a bar gig bass. I'm pretty pleased, what do you think?
