yeah, it's too bad the case will not. it's just too far gone I think.... all latches are busted/gone, handle was busted then replaced and moved.
all the tubing at the tolex seams is loose/coming off, as is the tolex.

I could probably work with all of that, but the plywood itself is all soft and flexible.....

I will cut out the bumper sticker though and keep it :)

Very cool bass and impressive resurection. Given what it has gone through, maybe you should get it a coffin case :lol:

I finally got the pots/switch a few weeks ago, and finally stayed awake long enough to do the wiring. A little bit of height adjustment on the Hipshot bridge, and the neck feels great, and it sounds great too... didn't have to touch the truss rod a bit...

feels just as good as the neck through, but the necks a bit thinner :up:
