I found this instrument fire damaged following a matrimonial dispute (Troubles at home? Do not leave your precious $10.000 instrument at home she thinks it’s worth a few hundred!). This bass had been smashed on the side of an oil drum incinerator and dropped in neck first. I pulled it out when I saw it and the women concerned yielded to my offer in euros for what remained. It has taken me 3 years to get it to play. Sadly the neck was just a stump. The lower waist area that gives all guitars that feminine shape had a huge gouge over 2 cm deep and 4 cm long. Like a machete had hit it. The wood was gone. Everything original I could save is fitted now. It took me a year to decide if it would be worth my effort to try a restoration. But in the end a bass has its own music and story to tell. So take it or leave it. Electronics, pots etc.… pickguard, thumb rest and pickup cover are original. Body reworked. Currently has a MIM neck MZ9566.

The strings are D’Adarrio  45 – 100 Round Wound and Kluson Tuners.

Price: Negociable
