What makes this bass special: A superb player's grade '61 P-Bass refinished in classic Olympic White. Aside from the pro refin the bass is all original & is an outstanding player. The silky smooth neck is a dream to play no matter where you are on the fretboard. The original single coil sounds fantastic & delivers warm, rich tones the P-Bass is known for. Professionally inspected & set up by the experts at Cream City Music, so it's ready for action upon arrival.
Cosmetic Condition: Good honest play wear with a cool vintage vibe - various minor nicks, chips, dents & dings; scratches, weather checking & some mild finish wear. There are some minor cracks in the pickguard with a couple of corners missing. Overall, though, the bass looks great with a beautiful patina.
Neck: Maple neck with dark Brazilian rosewood fingerboard & clay dot inlays. Original frets are in great shape with hardly any wear. Single string tree & open-back tuners in perfect working condition. 1 11/16" nut width; 34" scale length. Neck is straight & truss rod works fine. Neck pencil date reads 10-61.
Body: Contoured, solid alder body refinished in Olympic White. Top-loading bridge with four adjustable saddles & original bridge cover. 4-ply tortoise pickguard with original finger rest. Bass weighs 9 lbs 3.8 oz.
Electronics: Original split single coil pickup - 11.30K ohms with original cover. Master volume & tone controls with knurled knobs. Pots date to '61 & all electronics are in perfect working condition.
Case: Original brown tolex hardshell case included.
