    I've seen TG signed necks, but that doesn't look like the ones I've seen, and while the D stamp did happen on stuff, that's cleaner and deeper than any I've seen...and it's pretty convenient that the bridge is missing. I also note that the description sez its got a 4 barrel bridge, but the pics clearly show a 2 barrel bridge.

    I'm withholding judgement. Is the pickguard of the right 'fiber' material, like this era Teles?

    So the foam mute on the underside of the cover no longer dampens the strings.

    That looks authentic. But I am not a '51 expert. That bass has a ton of mojo.
  15. I find it very odd about the bridge description...

    Just makes you say "hmmmmmmmmmmmmm... :eyebrow:"

    I LOVE '51 P-basses, though...someday...I'll own one (at least a re-issue...hehe)
  16. Gruhn Guitars has a '54 P.....natural finish....only $25K....

    I had a 53' P bass (last Fender on the right in the photo).It was either serial #1233 or maybe 2133.
    I have to say that the neck felt like a baseball bat,the truss rod was basically worthless and the pickups windings were wrapped in string. It was very light,and the fretboard was easy to play.
    I was afraid to take it out of the house.I sold it.

    It was nice to have , nice to have people ask the year etc.

    It sounded like a long distance phone call on a damaged telephone.
