I got originally to restore it . It belonged to a professional soul bassist that put his character on it. Structurally is a fine piece neck straight, low action no repairs filler etc.Has some wear but it wont need to be re fretted anytime soon.
The volume of the neck pickup got removed and it only has a master volume for both pickups and a tone, plus the baritone switch that gives you hole wide range of tones and sounds . The pickups are original as well as the rest of the electronics.The pickguard has a fracture as shown in pics The guys from Mojo Axe can replicate almost anything at an affordable rate. The tuners are all working and original but one has a Musicman decal engraved but looks exactly like the other 3 . Back then a lot of  parts came from the same manufactures. So no extra holes is hard to tell. 
The ugly paint sprayed looks like some type of acrylic, it does not look or feel that invasive. Regardless i intended to get it refinished in thin lacquer.This the first edition set neck with MAA PLEE and Ebb onny fretboard + original hard case
