It was a pre-73 Azureglo, with all the desirable features, and it can be rubuilt. Or someone could use the vintage parts to restore another bass.

People are paying $900 for one pre-CBS Strat pickup, and that's even without the plastic cover (about $250 for a set of three). Original Gibson PAF's are more. A matched set of late 50's PAFs... $5K-$10K or even more. Here we are talking about two vintage Rickenbacker pickups. And a split bridge.

I have a 74 4001 that was originally white, it now looks almost like a CS4001. Very yellow. I replaced the black pickguard with white and put a reissue toaster and horsehoe pickup in it. (You used to be able to buy them!)
I just wish I could get rid of the black binding.
