Many thanks to Joe for the name

Originally a mostly gutted X-640, with cosmetic issues.

Sanded and refinished the body in a green burst (black edges), with a Poly top-coat.
The neck pickup is the one that came with the bass. not original.
The bridge pup is the original one for the X-640, but one set of the double wound pup is bad (outer coil) so it's just wired as the single coil (inner)

Added an Artec EX3 EQ Boost. 9V system.
V-V-T knob set-up using vintage MIJ pots, 2 Electra, 1 other. X-640 knobs.
The switches are (new):
-Series/Parallel (when both pups selected)
-Hi-Lo Boost (Expand) / Flat Boost (Natural / Mid-Boost (Peak)
-EQ Off/On

pickup selector is Electra X-640 also.
G tuner bushing was missing. I ended up making one for it. not a perfect match, but will keep the machine aligned now.

Gig Bag.

$250 shipped.
