    Thanks to alot of TBers we have been able to date this bass by the location of the flower in the headstock logo and the hardware to Pre 1973
    These are quite rare and is a fine example of a 70 lawsuit era p bass
    This is one of my babys up for sale
    I have done alot of work to this bass
    To make it an excellent player
    And with it's original maxon humbucker it has some great tone
    The finish is semi gloss with nice grain the 70s chunky neck has some natural flame to it
    It has normal wear for a 40+ year old bass
    Nut width 1 5/8
    Adjustment at the heel
    34 scale
    Just over 9 lbs on the bathroom
    Scale
    Wilkinson bridge
    Strung with old fender flats
    Please PM with any questions
    Will be over packed and shipped
    To the lower 48
    Price is firm on this one
    Please no trade offers
    Chop!!!

    Wow! Didn’t think you’d let this one go! If I had the cash I’d buy it for sure, that’s one solid bass from a solid guy! Good luck!

    Thanks for the kind words
    This is a great bass
    Just slimming down a bit
    The tokai is getting all of the play time
    When the right person sees this one
    It's gone
    It is possible I change my mind
    Lol
