For your consideration, we present a blast-from-the-past from the bolt-on wizard himself, Keith Holland.

This 51-PBASS-ANS predates Keith's record-keeping and we estimate that this is a 10-15-year-old build. This bass exemplifies the spartan style of the classic and oozes vintage appeal, as it masquerades as a 70+ year old instrument. Keith kept this one pure, with a contourless body, T-style headstock, single-ply white pickguard, single pickup, and fully-aged nitro finish and hardware. Controls are kept simple as well with a master tone and master volume but the previous owner - the late Vance Ehlers - customized the heartbeat of this bass with a custom Howard Ulyate TicTac '51 P-Bass pickup with oversized pole pieces for a wider range.

This bass is in Very Good condition, showing signs of light-to-moderate use and careful storage. This guitar was born with a "Aged-New-Stock" treatment from Keith Holland and bears intended wear, weathering, and finish checking. In this case, it is difficult to tell which wear is intentionally inflicted and which was accidental. Should you require any additional photos of this instrument, please reach out to us via Reverb or directly at the shop. This package includes a gig bag and a strap with Dunlop Strap Locks.
