This is a really great example of the Bass VI.  Check out the flame on that neck!  Its a great looking piece that plays really well.  It's lighting up our shop!

From the big, thick Brazilian slab fretboard, to the tortoise guard, to the strong color in the tree tone sunburst, this instrument draws you in.  It has been played, but well cared for without a doubt.  

The finish, parts, solder joints - everything is original.  Included as well is the original case.  There are a couple small touch ups of the finish in a couple black areas of the sunburst.  Other than that, it is unmolested.  

The original brown case is included, and it is in great shape as well.
