Is this stock? I don't think it looks the same as other Westone Headless basses I've seen.

That's gotta be restorable, though.... new knobs (haha!) and a new set of Magnafluxes (also haha!), and whacko!!! Shocked Smile

He'd have had to carve out space for that split-coil, which is probably why it has that little scratchplate on it. I don't think you could restore it very easily, if at all.

What a bloody shame! He should be drawn and quartered!

I actually had one of these basses appear magically in the shop a few weeks ago with a broken jack receptacle.
Belonged to a youngster who was just learning to play and came in with his dad. It was given to him by a family friend. Lucky kid!
She was in really good condition except for a missing knob (of course).

I'm not a bass player but I had to try this one out. Man, I gotta tell ya it was a gorgeous thing to play!
