It's that much, because that is what the seller is asking.

I never get these threads. Sellers are perfectly at liberty to set whatever price they want. We don't know what has resulted in that particular price and it is pointless to speculate.

If it's too expensive don't buy it. AFAICS there are plenty of Fender basses available at lower prices. Buy one of those.

I messaged the seller and got this reply

 

Hi,

Andertons are a very big shop and do reduce prices and do great deals often. 

We can not compete on generic items. The bass Is a fair cheaper than that in the shop. 

Cheers.. Mo

Because that's one of the points of this section of the forum.

I thought the forum was for pointing out the more unusual basses appearing on eBay.

There's nothing remarkable about an overpriced Fender when there are plenty of others at more sensible prices.

I always personally do lots of research when buying a bass, but buying one, particularly a Fender, can be a minefield to novices because of the number of fakes and chancers charging too much.  Whatever you think the purpose of this forum is, being on Basschat and having access to other people's expertise surely helps members navigate the minefield!

It's good to get an idea of/advice on prices too; folks do come here for reference.

This is weird because the seller is asking twice what’s it’s worth 

In my book, that’s weird
