The neck has been overesprayed and has a mid 1970 Head Stock Decal. I unhooked all the funky crap. It is wired with all 4 pickups and 2 output work, so you can play in stereo. The Bass is one of the top 5 Basses I ever sold. I have sold way over 100 Vintage Bass in the almost 20 years. Rocks. HANDS DOWN. That is why I left it as you see it. I put a set of NOS 1960's Gibson String on it. (out of my personal; stash. ) I know you Bass players like change strings NEVER, but to do a great set up. New strings had to go on. I have no reason or ever have give a false report on a guitar, or brag how great it plays and sounds. This has the mods as you can figure it out, but it plays and sounds Mind Blowing. I would not of bought it if it sucked. That simple. It also has been played it life in many bar bands. No one plays a crappy bass for 30 years. It had strings on it that was so fat I never seen them that big. Neck sets up straight, ZERO buzzing. It's a Darn Beast.
The pickups are 1970

The Bass is Quite plugged into Amp, and you can treat a Brazilian Rosewood 1st year 1959 Fender Neck. A lot of adjustment either way lefty. Straight as a arrow, No dead spots..
All body contours are intact.. Neck is a Full C- Shape Neck Profile.Brass Nut and Plays and sets up perfect!
The pictures shows all, last note orig tuners if put back on, covers up most of the other plugged holes from non Fender tuners on. The ones on now are Solid and the Bass stays in tune for YEARS..IT"S IN THE WOOD. That why old guitar's have it.
This has been my Personal (Shop) Bass for years..I will most likely miss it
Comes in a 1975 Fender Case. The guitar and case has no smells but it is a played Bass that will be 10 times no 20 times that of a new green wood Fender C-shop Ptrecision Bass..
