Man, I totally disagree. Thats probably 20 years of scratches from a leather coat, palm rubbing, touring etc. That is beauty to me! Everyone can own a brand-spanking new shiney instrument - its a reflection of his lifetime of hard work. His bass is proof that he's concerned more with comfort and sound than image, thats respectable in my book. I'll bet he's been "fixing" it for more years than many members here have been alive.
