Bought from Basschatter Marc S in Nov 2017. PJ mods, Entwhistle p/ups done under his ownership ( Dave Dearnley iirc). The work has been done to a very high standard. I’ve barely played it and gigged it twice.Playing my Jazz bass almost exclusively now but even so I think I may regret letting this one go. Excellent condition just a couple of minor scratches on rear of body. Usual Classic Vibe build quality,one of the darkest rosewood boards i’ve ever seen. Weight- just a smidge over 9lb/4kg. I’ll include the gig bag it came with. Collection preferred (i’m not far from M5 junction 26)but could do a meet up.

I would like to know some suggestions from you since me being in a hunt for a tele bass. I really don' want to go dawn the road of a original one neither a fender custom shop model.
Here and there I have found some interesting luthiers, makers, small companies that offer relic jobs and builds regarding this specific model.
Let's say that my price range (what I'm willing to pay) goes form 800 - 1100 eur (used or new).
Some of the luthiers I have found (I know some of them are WAY ABOVE the price range I've mentioned) but just to give the idea, are:
- Veranda guitars (https://www.veranda-guitars.de/)
- Loic le pape ( https://loiclepapesteelguitars.com/ )
- James Trussart (http://www.jamestrussart.com/)
- Relic'Art Guitars (https://www.relicartguitares.fr/)
So the idea is to found a "tele" bass that looks and feels just like it has finished a gig in a blues club full of smokers, drunks, etc.., americana, "the good old days",... If you know what I mean (the pictures attached sums up pretty well what I have in mind:
P.s. even some "bitsas" are ok!
Can you give me some other links / suggestions and such ?
Since the lock down I've been playing guitar more and... I keep wishing for a Telecaster. Instead of that, I bought a PRS SE I found locally as I was missing the dual humbucker thing (I sold all my guitars except for a Stratocaster and a P90 Les Paul type).... and I still want a Tele.
I think I'll probably get a Squier Classic Vibe, but there's a few other cheaper alternatives and I'm wondering if any of them are decent. In particular the Harley Benton ones look good and people seem to like the basses. Any experiences?
Gotta be maple fingerboard, ideally lacquered/tinted, but definitely maple regardless.
November 2020 edit:
Metallic red SX and metallic purple Classic Vibe Squier ended up being the winners... but quite a few other cool alternatives out there.
