The previous owner improved the tone of this bass by modifying the tone control to be a sweeping tone, rather than a selector type pot as original. The 2-pickups really sing, and give a great difference in tone through them both. It has been recently cleaned, serviced, and re-strung with flat-wounds by a local technician. The original bridge has been replaced for a wooden'Hofner-style' bridge, and a period correct cover added lately. It really is a great bass guitar with plenty of mojo, and plays like a dream.
