Vintage '60s Norma Teisco BURNS Type Bass Guitar Neck & Body!

 

 JAPAN ! PROJECT !

PARTS PROJECT! !!

 

Good foundation for  fun project bass guitar or repairs!! Lotsa charismatic wear - particularly on lower edges. Electronics are 100% - sort of a gnarly Hagstrom sound. Has a sort of rotary 'Varitone" control, too!

This could be a really wild bass with some TLC - good summertime project!

*****ONE REALLY IMPORTANT PROBLEM TO TELL YOU! ****

THE TRUSS ROD HAS WORKED LOOSE & DOESN'T FUNCTION!

I'LL SAY IT AGAIN..

THE TRUSS ROD HAS WORKED LOOSE & DOESN'T FUNCTION

Would suggest hot knife fretboard removal & repair/replacement of t-rod (might just need the end reattached). Most of the neck binding is damaged anyway & has to be redone. White strip on back of neck is a day-glo bumper sticker of some kind - peels right off. PLAN B - get another neck!!!!!

 - BEST OF LUCK!

TERMS OF SALE

Sold 'as-is'. Needs have been described. Please examine pictures for detail and determine if this is a project that you would like to undertake. I would advise AGAINST purchasing this guitar with the intent of having a luthier/'guitar tech' put it back together for you - too costly and this really doesn't require any advanced skills other than common sense, wood work, gluing, and ability to use a screwdriver. If there is any chance that you would NOT be happy with doing your own restoration, repairs, & set-up, you may wish to pass on this offering. I'd rather avoid any unpleasantness because of unmet expectations.
