Weighting at 8.2 lbs, which is very lightweight for a Precision Bass with Ash body.The Original 2-Tone Sunburst finish combined with the original 1-ply white pickguard and the pickup and bridge covers creates a stunning combination.

The neck is great, a massive all Maple neck with a stunning flame and the typical skunk stripe .I ts finish has the typical checking/patina, cigarettes and wear in the back throughout years of playing which makes it very smooth to play. It’s definitely a medium/chumnky neck profile (0.840″ Neck thickness at 1st fret and .950″ at 12th fret). Nut width is 1.72″. Frets appears to be original as they show moderate wear, allowing low action and playing throughout the whole fretboard evenly without any dead spots. The truss rod functioning both ways. It’s been professionally set and it sounds as incredible as you can expect and more.

The instrument comes with its original Tweed tolex case that is in Very Good condition for its age with all latches and handle in perfect working condition.
