I ran into this bass at a pawn shop and couldn't help but to put it on layaway because it played so nice!! I'm just wondering how in the world a bass can get to this point. It must have been played on thousands of gigs. The thumb indention by the rear pickup is so deep! I can't even imagine ever playing one to this point of wear. The serial number dates it anywhere between 69-73. I didn't have time to take it apart. I just went for it. Here are some pics. What a fun bass this is going to be!! Any thoughts?
