Very rare when this clean and original is this 1964 National 85 model National electric bass serial number G31787 in beautiful Ermine White Res-o-glas with a body shaped like a map of the United States (upper treble bout corresponds to Florida). Super clean all original example with a perfectly straight neck, no modifications or repairs. Two pickup model with a standard single coil in the neck position and a pickup mounted in the floating bridge. Some minor abuse wear and small nicks but not much playing wear as evidenced by the silk screened graphic still intact on the chrome pickup and bridge (usually worn off with any significant playing time). Nice light instrument with a shorter scale length of 24 3/4" comfortable wide at the nut great feeling neck, sounds wonderful, it's all about good bottom, no case. Best example we've seen of this rare instrument offered anywhere, highly recommended as a great investment, now only $1699. Thanks, VGA
