Supposedly off a '74 P-Bass.
likely legit. Bass looks stripped and refinished.
Thank you, sir.
And yeah, I don't know about the finish but it's pretty heavily modded in other areas so it wouldn't surprise me.
I don't doubt you for a second, but how did you determine that with so little to see in the pic? I am genuinely curious.
And yeah, the S/N looks right for a late 70's Fender but that is not saying much as it was just 6 numbers stamped on a neck plate. I believe numbers in the 300,000 are early to mid 70's but I am sure there is a more educated fellow just about to chime in.
That seems common with the 70s Fenders. Strip to natural finish - in some cases even alder bodies - and a J or MM bridge pickup seem to be the most common mods.
Then there was Geddy's teardrop.
Hopefully there are not 15 switch holes in this one.
That serial # lies well in the 1973 range.
Separate names with a comma.
