Wine Red transparent thin-skinned satin nitrocellulose lacquer finish which lets the body wood's natural tone shine through. This classic Fender USA bass features '70s styling, a factory original Badass Bass II bridge, and a beautifully grained Rosewood fretboard. Being a 2006 model(first year for the newer specs on the Highway One) it has Fender's 60th Anniversary badge on the back of the headstock. The pickup has been upgraded to a Seymour Duncan Quarter Pound P-Bass pickup. This 17 year old instrument is in nice shape for its age with almost no fretwear and just some very light surface scratches/indents. The parchment color pickguard has aged to a darker hue and when the stickers that came on it new were removed at some point, they left lighter color shadows. Since the pots/input jack are in the pickguard, anyone could easily install a new pickguard(around $30 on Reverb) if so desired. It comes with the original deluxe Fender gig bag and Fender bass truss rod tool.
Polaris White finish - only around 207 produced in this finish from 1975 to the end of 1979 according to Gibson shipping records. This was Gibson's flagship bass guitar in this era, both in terms of build/electronics and high price. High-end cosmetic features include block position marker inlays, body and neck binding and a split-diamond headstock inlay. Other specs include a Honduras Mahogany body, laminated mahogany set neck with a Rosewood fretboard, 30 1/2 inch scale, and 24 frets. The versatile electronics include two low impedance humbucking pickups with Hi or Low immpedance modes, 3-way pickup selector, 3-way tone switch, Phase switch, and volume, treble, and bass knobs. Includes case. STOCK PHOTO

E tuner has been replaced with a drop tuner but again, original is included. Has some battle scars on the edges but overall very good vintage condtion. Sounds great and plays well.
