Everyone that knows me quickly learns that I have a love affair with these cool hockey stick headstocks. I probably shouldn't have passed on this one, since this is the only mint condition specimen that I've seen come up on the market in the last 20 years. Who am I fooling? Even as a unplayed stage prop on my show it would now bear numerous cancerous battle scars that would each have their own tale to tell. How noble of me is that? Once again passing on a bass that I love, knowing that the road I have traveled has destroyed so many pristine gems in past; & would only devour another victim too quickly on the stages of the upper midwest night club circuit.
