Very unusual non contoured 57 Bass was examined by Dave Jeffrey a Fender Bass expert and collector at Guitar Showcase in the Bay Area. He was sure the finish was factory. The original pickup was replaced with a Lindy Fralin vintage reissue. Original frets are thin and have been leveled. Bass weighs 8.15 pounds. Bass will come in an old Fender case in good shape. Original pick guard does not lay completely flat. Bass has not been actively played for over 25 years and will need a players set up. Pickup, pots etc. work as they should. The pots date to the 43rd week of 1961. Body date is 5-57. Neck date is 4-57. Very solid hip bass to play. (There is a link to a Dave Jeffry video below}
