I compared all the routings to another '65 O saw in person there identical, every screw hole , every route, now I have never seen a fullerton body naked in person , but there is no way there that close to a real '65. Also the bass came with more 65 parts, pots dated '65 and also a correct bridge for a '62 to like '67 fender and also the knobs were super light , just like real mid 60's fender knobs were, no reissue has gotten the weight of real 60's knobs correctly.
That along with the pickup and neckplate makes me certain the bass wasnt just a fullerton with changed parts.
I really cant prove or disprove this gaurd and I have had people PM me saying its real 60's. I have also had people say its fullerton.
Untill I can prove either way , I am more then likely going to pull the ad.
Sorry for any typo's, back from a gig been up all night and tired.
