1. Welcome to TalkBass 2014! If you're new here, we just went through a major site upgrade. Please post all concerns and bugs to the Forum Usage Issues forum. We will be monitoring that forum. Thank you for all of your feedback.

    The TB Android app is working, you may need to uninstall/reinstall. The iPhone app is now updated and should work after you upgrade. TalkBass is responsive to any screen size, so we recommend using your mobile browser for full functionality.

    Please read the TalkBass 2014 FAQ for lots of great info on the new software.

I hope no one on here is bidding on this one ...

    I saw the 55 bids and wondered what I was missing, then checked the bids and the majority are all from 3-4 people, with very little feedback ...

    Everything about that bass looks like a MIM Standard ... except what the seller is showing stuck on the headstock

    .. also, I could be wrong, but a Custom Shop bass would carry the serial number that started with 'C' and come with a hardshell case?? .. and with the cheap MIM Standard quality tuners on it ??

    ... I requested full serial # along with other questions, with no reply .... so if I am missing something here, would be glad to hear where I am mistaken .. but this is MIM Standard as I see it based on components
