... B) I was wondering how I would go about fixing the chips in the surface.

I cant tell if its painted, or if its some kind of hard acrylic or plastic top coating...

On the back side of the bass though it is very visible that it is black paint...

Im trying to recondition the entire body myself and have been reading up on the stripping methods but nothing seem to cover any confrontations with acrylic/hard plastic coverings...

its a great looking bass, a classic and rare one.... soon to be vintage....

so i want to try and spruce it up....

it also appears that the neck on the side has a gash/chip and it seems that it is acrlyic coated as well!!!! :o

any suggestions? specifics please.... someone told me about bondo... but ***, that will be sloppy, i want this guitar to shine brand new with a stellar black coat that i could brus h my hair in....

any comments ? thanks... :D

Sand paper will work if all else fails. :D

Post some pics to give a better idea of what is going on.

Don't forget that (sometimes) the fact that it HASN'T been modified or repaired can drive a few dollars into a guitar.

For example: Every fender pre 1970.

Chips on a guitar finish.... Often means the guitar sounded good enough to be used a lot. Always having the chips is a nice reminder of that.

Now you got me wanting to go each some chips

yeah well it could mean bad shipping. I got my LC-10 saga kit and the fiberglass top chiped. Well im refilling it. Im painting it anyways so it wont matter. But check if it has a fiberglass top. Not like the body is fiberglass just the top layer.
