Hi. I just bought this old fretless jazz bass on a auction.
Is there anyone there can id date this ?
Look at the pictures and serial number. I could not find it via the serial number.
The stickers on the neck is missing so is this a 60 or 80 or TJB 70 F or ?
There is a replacement on the bridge that is not original.
Sound amazing, Im glad.

Should I clean it or will it then lose value ?
The chrome-plated parts are eroded, dull, and can be cleaned up, but it may ruin the vintage look and will it go beyond the value? Does anyone know this and have an opinion on this? Thanks for all the input.

Any idea what the value is for a bass like this ?
