Physical Condition
This bass is in great condition, and while it's been played over the years, this bass is in solid condition with only some moderate wear. Most notably, there small bumps, dings, scratches, and scuffs all over the body and neck in various spots. The body finish has yellowed up over time, and some spots have darkened up more than others. Neither of the strap buttons are original. The pickguard and hardware have some scratches, and the hardware has some notable tarnishing and some light rust. Otherwise, there is no other cosmetic damage to make note of aside from some superficial scratches associated with normal play and use. Overall, this is a great sounding and playing bass.

The frets on this bass are low and flat, common for this era, and have some wear. Some fretwork may be necessary in the future, but the bass is playable as is. Frets and fingerboard could use a quick cleanup during the next restring.

Action is medium low and playable, but may need a quick tweak to your liking. This bass currently has a thick shim in the pocket and has flatwound strings.

All electronics are original in this bass, but the tone control does not work, and if the knob is manipulated side to side the signal is cut, so a new tone pot will probably be necessary. The volume control and jack are both operational but are intermittently scratchy and could use some TLC.

Non-original hardshell case included. The handle is broken off the case.
