This is a very interesting 72 Telebass. The bass was formerly owned by a company that made cases for Fender. The bass is a satiny natural and were not certain but in our professional opinion the finish is the sealer coat as it is definitely NOT refinished. It looks like it was not finished and sent to the case mfg as a professional sample. It says faintly under the strings above the bridge ‘Telecaster Bass’ written in marker. I’d just leave it, it looks cool.. The guard is recent, the pots and knobs are newer and the tailpiece was changed to a 4 saddle unit that is string thru. This bass was owned by a player and plays and sounds really good. Priced like a refin but still has some certain pedigree. This is a cool bass with great personality. GB.
