Guess this would be considered a first gen TL-Five, distinguished by the presence of Super Ferrite pickups and a somewhat fatter neck profile than the later ones. The serial number dates it to 1991.
I replaced the original preamp with an Aguilar OBP-3 (vol, blend, treb, mid and bass cut and boost, and mid select switch) which to my ears mates very well with the Super Ferrite pickups and results in a 100% improvement in tone. I have the original electronics and knobs and will include them. The bass has Dunlop Straplocks.
The bass has a few dings and the usual superficial swirly scratches. It has been well used but not abused. The battery box cover is not broken, that being an issue I've seen on many TL's of this era. The frets are ok - they have been crowned probably more than once and may or may not have enough height left for another crowning. As it is, the action is set up medium low without any fret buzz, but it is probably not possible to go too much lower without buzzing. Your mileage may vary with that, of course. I find the bass very comfortable to play as it is.
I have a decent non-original tweed hardshell case to ship it in.
I'm not interested in any trades at the moment, thanks.
