You're looking at a vintage mid-70s Ampeg Little Stud short scale bass in all original condition. These are super rare birds to begin with, let alone this well preserved. Ampeg's take on the P-bass is driven by a single chrome covered pickup. It sports a really nice bound neck with block inlays. There is some uniform fret flattening, but it plays well up and down the neck. Body design features a unique wood laminate construction (see pics).This Japanese made bass is like no other. All electronics work and sound great. In short, it's a total head turner. The hard case is in good condition too (and has one of the most unique shapes of any case you'll see). Has some minor playing marks, mostly on the edges--not bad for 40+ years old. Belongs in someone's collection. Weight is 9 pounds, 9 ounces. Thanks for looking! (Please Note: I sell in several location on the Internet and may end auctions early if items sell elsewhere.)

Guitar Setup
My setup on guitars includes new strings (9s or 10s depending on what the nut is cut for), overall polish, cleaning any gunk off fingerboard, oiling neck, and polishing frets when necessary. I spray out any pots that are noisy. I turn the truss rod (if necessary) and set string height at low-to-medium action depending on string buzz present. Since setup is highly subjective you may need to get it set to your particular needs by your personal luthier. I don't claim to be a trained luthier, but I'm able to set guitars/basses for a reasonable out-of-box experience and have had very few complaints. If you're looking for the perfect setup on a used guitar, please expect to take it to a trained luthier who is familiar with your individual playing style and preferences. ps: basses get the same setup minus the new strings. Thanks!

I use quality boxes, thick bubble wrap, and peanuts to pack guitars. I have a very high rate of successful guitar and bass shipping (meaning few damaged instruments). I have been doing this 10 years and know how to pack well--with or without a hard case. I wrote a detailed story with photos on how I pack a guitar, which you can find on my StillKickinMusic site blog. If you Google "THERE IN ONE PIECE...How to Pack a Guitar" you will find it. Thanks.
