PHYSICAL CONDITION: Very Good - The body has some minor dings, mostly on the bottom corner and some on the headstock, nothing major. The aluminum frame has worn off most of it's black finish, saddle and bridge as well. The damper control has lost its felt bumper but the mechanism is working fine. Original "witches hat" knobs and giant toggle. Overall the bass is in very good condition.

WORKING CONDITION: Very Good - All controls are working, as well as both pickups. Currently has flatwound strings on it and plays real nice. The damper control is missing the felt but the mechanism still works, so just replace the felt padding and its back to damping! The stereo outputs jack does not put out any signal but the mono jack is in perfect working order. Overall working condition is very good.
