    I'd buy it for $300, if it exists. Even if it's not the real deal. But I'd sure make it a face-to-face deal.

    Not much to lose at that price, I'd at least show up for the deal.

    Like any Craigslist deal though, I'd keep my pistol close by.

    +1 wonder if it could be legit and is a price error.

    So far, the only known white late '50s Precision bass with a matching headstock was in Norm's Rare Guitars collection.

    Scam!

    Oh, I thought it was a refin. But yeah, looking back at it right now, the centre latch on the case is in a weird place, and the gold PG is a bit too gold.

    I saw the same one earlier and immediately closed the ad. Such bull pucky.
    The give away that it's a scam is that the seller says " The bass will ship...".
    Ya don't ship when you Craigslist it up.
    If ya end up getting a 58 p for $300 I tip my hat to you!

    The bass is definitely real. However, a scammer will get back to your email, not the seller. Try it! It's fun to mess with those guys!

    I emailed him and asked when would be a good time to come see the bass. I haven't heard back from him yet.

    It usually takes about a day to hear back from a scammer- they have a lot of mail to go through- kinda like Santa! :hyper:

    This seller has had other scams up before.
    I also emailed him about seeing bass in person.
    Nothing.

    It's nice to see that it's original sodder joints are still in tact. I hate when sodder joints get out of tact, don't you?

    Seriously, if you were going to commit fraud in public, wouldn't you at least use a spellchecker?
