    That would have been a killer bass if it wasn't beat to death. Especially the headstock!:eek:

    On the one hand, it's all screwed up. But on the other hand, it has that sweet thumb rest.

    I was cool with it until I read that the frets were removed. Then I wept.

    Sad yes, but there isn't anything there that can't be retored. It would need a solid color finish to cover the repairs but given the price of these, it might be worth the restoration.
     
  9. But I don't brag about it. ;)

    To paraphrase Maki, I've seen worse.
     
  10. ditto, that looks like an awesome weekend afternoons project

    Since it's all butchered up anyway, I'd fill the holes, pop in two Darkstars, and refinish with a solid color, put a laminate on the headstock, and replace the logo.

    $199? Why not? If it were $1900, it'd be a joke.

    This is an excellent illustration of why old instruments in original condition are so rare. I myself have an early 60's Melody Maker that I should have left as it was, but no, I just had to "improve" it.
     
  14. It's just an old bass that has led a hard life. Without a major rebuild, it's either a beater or firewood.

    Yeah, it's a shame to see. On the other hand, 50 years from now it may be likened to a work by Picasso. :meh:
     
  16. I was going to say it would make a excellent weekend project until i saw the extent of the damage and then I noticed that p bass pickup. So that now puts it firmly out of the "a few hours work and it will be usable" category and places it into the "**** load of work needed" category. Still could be a nice custom if you had the time and skills to restore it to a semi original condition. I definitely don't :(
