Yeah right…..’Fender’ loft find

If the name 'Fender' is of any value to a potential buyer, then that buyer will know that this is not one.

 

If the word 'untouched' is of any value to a potential buyer, then the photos make it clear that the bass has been touched by a lot of things, and probably shouldn't be again until it has had a good going over with a Brillo pad.

Well, that's a first. I have now reported my first dodgy ebay listing.

He may be claiming ignorance, and few are likely to be fooled, but to state outright that the item is a Fender is fraudulent. Or 'taking the piss' as I call it.

He has a get out clause by saying 'He was told it was a  Fender'

Ditto, reported. He knows perfectly well that it's not a Leo.

I've just sent the seller the below message. It really infuriates me when people hide under a guise of ignorance in order to con people. 

 

"I see you're still selling this as a Fender when you know it isn't, so unless you've cancelled the auction or amended it to be truthful within 24 hours, I'm going to bid £1000 on it to ensure I win it, then if you post it to me, once it arrives I shall open a dispute with eBay that it isn't a Fender and get my money back, as per eBay rules, you'll be responsible for covering return postage. Or if I win and you don't send it, then I'll lodge a complaint that you've not sent me the item I've won. 

 

So be a decent human and either withdraw the bass and relist with a truthful description, or I'll bid, and win, and we'll go through the motions laid out above. 

 

Thanks."

Hmmm... good spot!

Agreed, I see loads of examples of that old bass (there are several variations, Japanese & Korean/Taiwanese, all with the same design) and never noticed it before. The Gibson even 'borrows' that overt curve on the control part of the scratchplate.

I wonder whether it inspired the shape of Gibson's EB bass from a few years ago?

How much did Gibson spend designing, prototyping and finalising the EB shape when all they had to do was trace around this fine example :)
