He may end up wishing he'd put a reserve price on this.

They only get stung if they don’t know what they’re doing and don’t use PayPal, you’d hope that with a bid at that level that that they do and will :)

Daft thing is that there are lots of good clues that this may well be (or at least have parts) a 70's P bass.  However, it just 'feels' a bit off and I'd have bells ringing.  Saying that I'm sceptical because I've heard/seen how easy it is to paint/stamp/code Fender parts to look authentic.  :/

Every single pre 1980 Fender I’ve owned has smelled pretty funky, open the case and there’s a mix of lacquer, fags, beer, sweat and, well other stuff. First sign I would have of fake is absence of funk :)

I shouldn’t  be surprised if this turns up again. I watched the bidding closely and exactly the same thing occurred as before. A bid going £10 above the last bid and then a big leap in the last seconds.

Also I didn’t think they started putting stickers under the scratchplate until later when the serial numbers had migrated to the headstock.

I left well alone this time. If someone did buy it and it’s a legit auction fair play. I don’t think the bass is a knock off but there’s something odd about the listing.

Bass is probably fine, seller probably not. You need both to be good to press the button

The case is identical to what was (before knowledge and the internet) sold to me as a refinished 76 P Bass. In some wys it looks right, but in others (in the words of Han Solo) "I have a bad feeling about this"
