    my friend told me about that and from what understand thats 4 year too early. seems REALLY fishy, just wondering what you guys think of this.

    and $7000 seems kinda cheap since 60s jazz in "relic" condition sell for $10,000+
     
  2. No, no, no. Looks really really fake: looks like the fingerboard extends past the neck, which is very period inaccurate, and a pearloid pickgaurd?!
     
  3. What a riot! That's the funniest thing I've seen in a while.

    I put a bid in and plan to drive over in my 1959 Mustang to pick in up. I'm planning on playing it thru my 1944 Ampeg amp.

    looks like a 51 refin (they didn't come in black did they?) that's been played heavily. definitely a replacement guard. fenders only been around commercially since 46, no way leo built the bass after only a year. the strat, or esquire or whatever that six string thing was called then, was barely even on the market in 47. hoax.

    I'm not an expert, but I've only seen them in a Natural finish from the early 50's. And how 'bout that guard?! The guy is either trying to pull something or is just guessing at what he has. Stay away from it, run fast...

    He might not be a liar, he might just bea dummy who bought the bass from somebody who told him it was a '47.

    I did not know that. Maybe the guy is just mistaken? If it's a relic job, it looks like somebody did a good job of making it look like real player wear...


    Has anybody contacted the seller and asked about it, or asked for any additional photos?

    The only things Fender made in '47 were Lap Steels and small Amps!! The Brodcaster guitar didn't hit the market until 1950.
