I splurged big time and bought myself a 40th B'day present. I've always wanted a vintage SCPB, and this tele came available Tuesday, just in time for my 40th! I'm prone to trade basses often, but this one is definitely a keeper. It's all original except for the pickguard, and is just what I wanted, down to the lollipops. It's in great shape, like it's been under a bed for several years. I'm very thankful that it came my way. Please ignore the bad pics. And my feet.
