Description: This is one of the finest sounding and playing basses we've ever had in shop and will make some player very, very happy so long as said player doesn't mind some legitimate battle scars from a beloved instrument. It's a true Rock n' Roll survivor with 50+ years of wear that you just can't replicate in a new instrument. The handsome looks and gnarly patina are thankfully just the tip of the tone-berg though. Playability, resonance and responsiveness are all spectacular and the tone is incredible with a gooey but punchy and slightly darker tone that does something totally different than your Fender bass. There's a lot of versatility from the controls that give you a myriad (yes, myriad) of killer vintage bass tones to choose from. This ol' bass beast is just begging to get back on stage and/or in studio!
