This is a great bass, take my word for it or try it at home. The neck is super straight and easy to play. The rear pickup has been changed to a precision bass pickup. It is a nice looking modification with some tortoise pickguard material re arranged and patched in around the pickup. I was told the precision pickup is from 1961 but have not taken it out to look. The finish on the bass and all the other parts are original and the case is newer.
