I've seen that bridge before, it's a real deal piece but without provenance I don't know how the seller can claim it's an original part

Only seen those bridges pop up a couple of times in my ten-plus years with an eBay account. I do NOT recall ever seeing a factory-installed one, though.

Yeah, I've seen these too - but have never heard of them as a factory Fender part. I wonder if there's any way to prove that.

Very interesting I have never seen that bridge before.

Not a factory part, imho. Also, bass looks to be refinished. Check bridge screw holes.

I've seen the claw before. It's impossible to say if it's factory installed, or even dealer installed. The funny thing is you can clearly see the impression of a standard bridge being installed at some point....or am I crazy?
I guess it's possible that somebody walked into a Fender dealer in the late 70's and purchased that bass "new" with the claw on it.

Hm-m-m-m-m, I could swear that Fender did install the Fender Kahler Claw Bridge on a model or two . . . been a longtime . . .

$3000?? Hogwash. Plus, how can you trust a guy who misspells "iceberg" and says "one a kind?"

You're not crazy, I can see it too!
