  1. Pickups couple of hundred maybe parted out. Tuners the in the £150 - £200 ballpark possibly... that means £500 for an aftermarket neck, questionable body and a set of pots from a lawsuit bass...
  2. no I hadn't.. thanks buddy. will mooch through that thread with a coffee later
  3. I don't intend to buy it - I was tempted at the very start as I had an early 76 that I sold for peanuts to pay the rent in the late 90's and have always regretted letting go.. not due to its percieved value but because it was my "the one"... at the time I knew sod all about P basses and the internet wasnt what it is today with resources for valueing and checking things. I just needed to keep a roof over my head and it was all I had to selll. I think this is a good exercise in investifgation, and drawing on the vast knowledge of the basschat community a learning experience possibly for those with less know-how.
  4. went through the extra pics he sent and found this - it does actually look (if you look closely) from what you can see that isnt obscured by the shielding that it does have grey bobbin pickups - but you cant see any markings as they are obscured by the shielding
  5. Neckplate looks very "new" compared to the rest of the bass - they (F logo ones) can be picked up from ebay for peanuts. I know 76 was a transition from serial number on neckplate to headstock. I think someone is going to get stung quite badly at £400 (providing it doesnt go higher that is!)
  6. I'd imagine yours were closer to these https://reverb.com/au/item/5724953-fender-cts-1973-pots-cap-precision-bass-wiring-harness
  7. looks to my non expert eyes like the tuners and scratchplate are genuine.. not too sure about the body and electronics though
  8. As far as I know CTS's with very distinct date codes on them
  9. Yeh - was interested to see the back of the pickups to see if they were grey backs, but didnt get that picture. It just seems off to me - bridge looks far to shiney, those pots are not CTS as far as I can see... used to own a 76 before I knew crap about fenders and the internet wasnt a huge thing.
  10. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Fender-Precision-Bass-Guitar-1976/333896192565?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908105057%26meid%3D38c1cc6046ed43e698cba3ed2104631a%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D15%26mehot%3Dpp%26sd%3D164698252869%26itm%3D333896192565%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2380057%26brand%3DFender&_trksid=p2380057.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3A6169f613-761f-11eb-b883-ee04ed023591|parentrq%3Ad0d3b5761770a9cd5d1a82eaffc8b152|iid%3A1 I got some further pictures of the pickups and pots from the seller - doesnt look right to me. Obviously the neck has been replaced as he has said, but to me they look more like a MIJ "lawsuit" copy. I could be way south of the mark.
  11. aye.. I learned with no amp, headphones on one ear playing along to stuff.
  12. I can't stand Miley Cyrus. But I love this.
  13. Collection only... do you have to bring your own Chlororform, zipties and gaffa tape or is it provided when you arrive... ???
