Shaftesbury Bass Guitar 1970s Vintage made in Italy – Lefty
Shaftesbury Bass Guitar 1970s Vintage Immaculate - Lefty You see a few 1970s vintage Shaftesbury Telecaster style bass guitars for sale every now and then. How many P-Bass versions of the Shaftesbury bass guitar have you seen for sale? This Shaftesbury bass guitar is even rarer. It’s a LEFTY. It’s finished in the original Butterscotch/ cream colour with some of the original parts. The 4 tuners are original. The Tele-style headstock is excellent with the “Shaftesbury” logo and two string trees. The Maple neck is good. It’s fitted with a truss rod with adjustment at the neck pocket end. The Rosewood fingerboard is in good condition too. The single black pickup is retained. The white scratch plate is a replacement and the little metal black Volume and Tone controls may be replacements. The body has a few marks on it but no nasty big chips. The lacquer has cracks to the front and back and there is a hole on the inside of the left horn where someone has removed a strap pin. This is an Italian Shaftesbury bass guitar from the 1970’s. It has nice low action. It may not be immaculate but it is very cool. Ready to be played and enjoyed.
