sunburst, 100% original. The beauty of a perfectly original pre-CBS Jazz Bass is the absolute best for the vintage bass lover. Neck date reads May 64 ("A" width), pot dates are 10th and 20th week of 64, grey-bottom pickups show pencil marks with one readable 64, while day and month are not clear. Untouched solder-joints, everything is very clean and unmolested.
This is the classic early 60s version of the JB, with light alder body, unbound brazilian rosewood fretboard with clay-dots, 4-bolt neck plate, L serial number, transition logo, tortoise plastic pickguard, reverse-gear tuning machines. 
Excellent Plus conditions, almost perfect nitro finish on the top, a large belt-buckle worn area on the back, a little playing wear on the neck, light checking, some body-edge wear. The sunburst color is very well kept, with bright red and very light fading visible only when the pickguard is off. Pastic parts are in perfect conditions and pickguard has no cracks and no warping. Metal parts are in excellent shape as well, including both original covers. This very nice Jazz Bass comes with its original black tolex hardshell case, which is in great shape.
Excellent action, frets in good condition, perfect playability. The great classic sound of early 60s Jazzes, which has set the standard for the music of the XX century. This is one of the finest instruments in this list, for originality, beauty, condition, completeness, playability, sound.
