This bass is in near mint condition and includes the original case. Set up nice and low, the frets are good as is the truss rod. There are only a few minor dings here and there to the body/ headstock but nothing major. The binding is all intact. The back of the body has a cutout covered by a leather pad which also protects the finish from buckle rash. The leather pad is attached to the body with press studs. The string mute is missing. A previous owner appears to have etched what looks like a phone number into the back of the machine heads and under the tailpiece.

Tennessean-style body, 15-5/8 inch lower bout, red mahogany finish, maple body, rounded single cutaway, maple neck, 21-fret ebony fingerboard with dot inlays, 1-5/8 inch nut width, 29-1/4inch scale length, gold hardware, roller bridge with ebony base, one Super Tron pickup, pots dated 1966, one volume control, two two-way switches, mute with switch, G-tailpiece, two white-plastic finger rests, padded back, 4-on-a-side tuners, gold Gretsch headstock nameplate, very cool, with OHSC (dark purple lining)
