    This one just made me laugh so hard! Isn't this that cheapo company "Premier" with just a Fender sticker on it?

    http://sandiego.craigslist.org/nsd/msg/4270060582.html

    Gullible as i am, I even bothered to Google "Fender Premier Bass Guitar". No such thing from any of my searches. You gotta love the "Normal wear and tear for age is reflected in lower than expected price - this is a deal."

    $300! This guy is seriously out of his mind. Or am I? This bass can't be real.. can it?

    The way the strings are strung alone would scare me off...

    Well, duh...

    What thief would expect that amazing case to be included at such a ridiculously low price?

    hmmm... Remember that post about Fender stickers being put on Squier basses, well this is probably the worst attempt at deception. Can't even be bothered to remove the original brand sticker nor use the right Fender logo, the sticker isn't even cleanly cut in a circle! If someone buys this Fender Premier Bass (the model came between the origins of the P-bass and the Jazz bass I believe ), I would say they deserve every bit of this fine piece of bass of history. All $300 of it. :)

    Those tuners are actually typical of a lot of 60's to early 70's MIJ basses. My MIJ Jazz bass from the 70's has the same kind of tuners on it.

    You know what they say - there's one born every minute. Somebody's gonna believe all that BS and buy it, even without that fab case, no doubt. :(

    Or it's the extension of that discussion and this is how the current owner/seller purchased it, and just doesn't know any better...

    I've always wanted a bass that fingers beautifully.

    Dude emailed me back. He's clueless.

    His reply was:

    Heck i don't know. The guy i got it from said its an old model and it looks like a Precision to me. Make an offer if any interest.
    : )

    Shame that people to do this to others to make a dollar.

    At least it fingers beautifully. That's what's really important.

    I'd offer him $20 or $30 for it.

    Premier was actually a brand from back then. Mostly remembered for their tube reverbs, this appears to be an actual vintage bass.

    I think the link is for a shop that closed not the maker of those basses

    Yea. My friend's first guitar when we were 16 was a Premier, and that was in 2001. It was a strat copy. Just awful. It was ok then, but looking back at what I know now (he still has it), it's just not worth anything.
