"It has a 1962 body stamp inside and the
pots are dated 173 (17th week of 1963). It is in very good
condition and was authenticated by a very well known Luthier here in N.Y.
As you know there may only be about 3 or 4 of these known.
Includes strip tuners also.
The bass was purchased in Denmark and that the previous owner purchased it used in 1965."
