Pickup Measurements: 9.7k

Modifications / Repairs: -Rewound treble pickup coil -The neck has been refretted -The nut has been replaced -Replaced wiring harness -Replaced pickguard

Case Details: Original Hardshell Case

Cosmetic Condition: This vintage Fender bass shows nice aging, with moderate checking and wear on the glossy finish. The back of the body has heavier checking and wear, and there is heavier wear along the sides and edges of the body as well. The back of the neck is glossy and smooth.

Serial Number: 319375

Tech Notes: The bass plays well with low action and minor neck relief; the truss rod has limited adjustability, and so the bass sets up well with 45-100 gauge strings or lighter. The wide frets are medium height with light play wear. The pickup stamps and serial number date to 1971, however the position of the thumbrest screw holes and the body routes are consistent with 1973, and so the bass likely dates to 1973.
