What makes this bass special:  Made for only a very short period of time in the late '60s, this ultra cool Italian beauty is 100% original & features some truly unique qualities.  Built-in G Tuner, Treble/Bass Booster & Distortion effects provide the player with an array of sonic textures.  The teardrop body shape & semi-hollow design make the bass light weight yet very resonant.  The super skinny neck is ideal for guitarists who also enjoy playing bass & the classic sunburst finish really rounds out the package.  Professionally set up by us with fresh strings & low action, so it plays & sounds fantastic!

Cosmetic Condition:  Great shape for its age with minimal wear - various minor nicks, chips, dents & dings; surface scratches & finish checking.  The bass is in perfect working condition & tons of fun to play.
