Typo? At £900 rather than £9000 it wouldn't be such a bad deal.

Reading that, I think I learnt more about the seller's life history than I did about the bass itself!

Still, you've got to love the little details in the "Item Specifics" section: "Features: With Pickup." How generous of him!

Not a typo, he already listed it at the same delirious price before...

Lunatic ?

It’s been listed quite a few times, the first time I thought it was a typo and offered £900, I got no reply 🙂

I reckon he's been told to sell it as 'it' s just sitting roumd gathering dust'.  He doesn't want to, so he has priced it not to sell.

AFAIK, it was fenders first active P , with volume, bass and treble 

Would that explain the access panel on the back?

Andy Baxter has a CAR one in for a (vaguely) more reasonable price:

I had one of the lovely all-walnut ones back in the day.

One thing which seems to be common to all of these - when they're not being gigged, they can also used as anchor points for commercial airships.

A mate of mine bought the blue model when they first come out. Heavy as but a really nice bass indeed. He got into raving in the 90's and swapped it for a couple of record decks. We all do very silly things.

I sold one recently for nowhere near that amount around a grand in fact. It was a beauty but at 5kgs not for my back! The controls were volume active bass and treble, if you switched it to passive they reverted to volume and tone. Very effective circuit.
