This is a definite player or project bass, with 40 years of genuine road wear from the original and only owner (me). I really want to see this bass go to a working player who will take it out often and rock it the way it deserves. Like most Beans, it weighs a ton and I'm just getting too old to deal for a whole set or a whole night. It plays and sound great though, as it always has.
Refinished from original white many many years ago due to discoloration of factory finish. Original passive wiring components long gone, except for the pickups. Currently has one of my filter style preamps in it, which sounds great,
but will rewire to original passive spec (or something else) if desired. I have a few other knob options on hand as well.
Lots of body dings, and one spot of wear on back of neck from case cradle, but could be refinished to very near original look fairly easily. Fingerboard wear is not bad for a 40 year old, as I always used halfrounds or pressure wounds on it. OHSC, also well worn but still functional.
Shipping at buyer's expense through local vintage gear specialist who owns local UPS store. Will send full pic set detailing all flaws to interested parties. Price is firm, no trades, and first preference goes to CONUS buyers, or better yet, a face to face deal.
