Mosrite basses are just plain cool looking, and this one takes the cake.  Plus it has the more useful and better sounding 30.5" scale length as opposed to the more often seen short scale version.

This appears to be an early one with a low serial number - LL0009.

The bass is playing really well, having received a setup during our evaluation and photo session.  It's light and really comfortable to play and it really has a killer look.

The frets are in great shape with no need to have any work done for years to come.  The neck is straight and there is room in the truss rod for future adjustment. 

All the parts are original.  The binding has shrunk a bit in a couple places, requiring some gluing with one area still needing to be addressed, the inside of the horns, on the back.  The binding isn't deteriorating as you see on some guitars - it has just shrunk some.  The pickguard has also shrunk a good bit but is still fully intact. 

Ships in the original hardshell case - a great package!
