How nice! That missing battery plate cover would be pretty easy to re-create with some sheet brass from ACE hardware!

Cool looking instrument. I'd be willing to guess that only the pickup selector toggle switch and skull knob are operational. Is there still a preamp card lurking under the back plate?

Do you like how it feels?

It's all operational. But the original electronics have been robbed. New setup to come. It's at Gruhn having neck work done

Hello Jason . Congratulations on your nice new acquisition !

Since you are having work done there on your beautiful instrument
there are many inquiring minds here also wondering about this , also at Gruhn ;

( I saw it many decades ago on a work bench being wired in San Francisco)

Best regards ,

That's actually me in that picture. Mr Gruhn just said it was being worked on and something will come
Of it soon. Slim on details. I held it for a while. It was very light. The inlays were beautifully worn in. And the hand notched work along the edges were an amazing thing to see. A lot of love and work went in to that bass. And you can feel it and see it.
