This bass perhaps has the best neck on a Fender bass I can find. The neck is super straight and all original with a V shape and comfortable size. The body is refinished, the neck has the original finish, decal and frets and has not been messed with. The pots are dated 1955 so I think those were a later find perhaps same with the knobs. The neck and body both have the original dates of 11/56 and the body is lightweight Alder. The bass weighs 8 pounds 3 ounces.
