I think that maybe a walnut core with a bass around that year.
I could be wrong.

Hi Robert,

Here's the detail from the instrument file:

serial: 76-564
name: Series I
model: LSB-I
top: Peroba Rosa
accent: none
body: Koa
back: Peroba Rosa
shape: Standard Point
neck: Maple, Purpleheart, Beech
scale: 34" long
fingerboard: Ebony
inlays: mother of pearl
side markers: not recorded (probably silver)
peghead: Crown
pickups: SC-1
electronics: PF-6 "Series I" volume x2, filter x2, 3-position Q-switch x2, 4-position pickup selector switch, stereo 1/4" output, stereo 5-pin output

There is a repair order when the bass visited here in 1995. At that time we replaced the pickups including the hum canceller, one of the filter pots, and performed a set up. The bass was living in New Jersey at the time.

Very pretty bass!
