    1960 model made 9/59 (penciled in the pickup rout) also dated via the serial #
    someone at one time sanded all the finish off with course grit sand paper, it still has a nice sunburst under the pick guard, when I got it it was set up like a "funk machine" flat wound strings and mile high action, there was no tension on the truss rod, so a couple of turns got the neck nice and straight, I used this for years as my only bass, dragging it around to bar's and clubs with me, until I finally retired it when I got the 57 re issue (it still has the original pickup and bridge cover)

    First of all, that's an impressive collection. But are you right handed or left handed? It looks like you have some right handed basses and then all the lefties are strung righty. It might just be the pictures but I'm confused. Haha, Thanks.
