This is an original 1961 P Bass with the original case.

I’ve had it for the past 15 years and it has mostly sat in the case. It’s been used in the studio and rarely on a gig. It has been played, as evidenced by the chips in the finish. However, there are no breaks, cracks, or repairs.  The frets are the typical small vintage wire and seem to have more grime than actual fret wear. This instrument plays on all frets with no buzz and the tone is fabulous. Every bassist who has played this guitar has told me, in some form of disbelief, that this is the best P Bass they’ve ever played. I know, but... it is a pretty good instrument. 
The only caveat is that the 2 screws used to secure the ash tray cover and one of the screws used to secure the pickup cover are missing.

This guitar will be professionally packed and insured for the full value through Heritage Insurance, one of the best in the business, FREE to the buyer.
