This bass is outstanding both as a collectable and as a gigging instrument.  If you're looking for a vintage short scale bass, this is one of the nicest sounding ones you're likely to find.   There's just something about those Danelectro lipstick tube pickups that translates very well to bass guitar.  This model is from the early '60s and is all original except for one replaced tuner.  

Set up in-house by our esteemed Guitar Tech, so this Dano is dialed in and ready to rumble.  Comes with a Gig Bag.  This bass is a good'un.
