    Friends don't let friends "go punk" on their instruments.

    So let me get this straight. I can't verify ANYTHING on this bass. No neck pocket numbers, no neck numbers, no pot numbers, nothing. The frets aren't original, as well as the pickguard, finish, and probably the electronics. The only POSSIBLE original parts to this bass are the body and neck (which has been hacked) and, again, I can't verify this. And I'm going to pay $12,000? Um......... no.

  11. My gut says it's a mexi 50s reissue. It's got the same cap and pots as mine, and the unshielded, unpainted control cavity is how it looks on the mexican one too.
  12. Perhaps it is a typo and meant to read $120.00 instead of $12,000

    Seconded. :eyebrow:
  15. Either way,great story.
  16. Indeed... an outrageous sum based merely on assumption. I hope that no one will actually offer that kind of money for an "unknown"...

    Also, no sign of the strap button on the rear of the headstock. Those existed until the late 60s IIR
