    I have probed support for starting a Telecaster Bass Club on TalkBass, and at least nobody objected starting the club. The charter is a bit loose, as there are a few restoration projects ongoing, and it is difficult to find original parts for these. In addition, since the original Fender Telecaster Bass is not a very common instrument to find, Squiers, Custom Shop, and Warmoth/partscaster projects are allowed.

    Here are a couple of new pictures of my 1978 Telecaster Bass that I bought from Chrisguitars ( http://www.chrisguitars.com/ ) a few years back. (I was going to get a better flash but the Duracells had leaked in the battery compartment and I need to clean the gunk out...)

    I welcome everyone with a suitable Telecaster Bass to post their pictures and apply for a number!

    naetog, you'll soon get a "real" one, will you?

    Actually, I like what you've got!

    Interestingly, there are three Telecaster bass guitars up on auction on e-bay right now (that I know of).

    ...and about "my tidy space"... Yes, I know. I am not the only one using my garage for storage. The band PA with electronic drum kit is out at the moment and I will be in trouble when it is carted back next week.

    Here is my 73 that I purchased from Rumble Seat Music I guess I paid for the pictures too? They are better than I can take! I purchased one of these Telecaster Basses back in the late 70's at a pawn shop for $300.00 as a back up for my 3 tone sunburst Precision anyway it ended up being my favorite bass of all time and a have to have another someday well here it is!
    Can I get a number?:hyper:
