    Vintage Pearl Jazz bass (probably 70's).
    Appears to have the 70's pickup spacing too (at least at a glance). I've read that these were MIJ.

    I had Kevin Brubaker level, crown and polish the frets on this. He gave it a full setup and he also properly set the nut channel heights.

    Has a super straight neck and very LOW action! Tone to die for from the vintage-DiMarzios. Body was refinished many years ago to this vintage-white that you see here (not the best job, but it looks cool). $550 (split shipping). CONUS shipping only please.

    Correct. They made instruments for a very short time in the late 70's as I recall.

    I'm trying to get a handle on the color in the pic, are the bed sheets white? If so I can color correct it for you and will send you the corrections.

    The pictures are a pretty accurate depiction of the color. The sofa is an off-white (slightly creamy) and the bass is a lot more vintage, creamy, yellow/white...

    I think the cream/vintage DiMarzios and the rosewood board would be a good color value.
