I don't understand what you mean by "the neck was modified?"
As far as I can research thus far, there were no 1972 Fretless Telecaster basses produced at Fender. The neck was modified by the original owner to be Fretless in 1973. I hope that explains it for you
Clearly the frets weren't pulled out and filled, so I guess they replaced the whole fingerboard. However, it wasn't done in such a way that the stock pick guard worked anymore, as that's been modified too.
If you could then provide the language that would describe it to your liking I would be happy to change the description. The slab must have been removed and the new one applied to the original neck.
I have no idea what's actually been done there. Sorry.
Clearly you have a strong opinion and supposition.."Clearly the frets weren't pulled out and filled, so I guess they replaced the whole fingerboard. However, it wasn't done in such a way that the stock pick guard worked anymore, as that's been modified too..."
So if you can think of a better way to describe the instrument then please share.
If the frets were pulled and filled, one would be able to see that.
That the pick guard has been modified around the neck pocket is clearly seen in your photographs.
I'm not trying to be argumentative or confrontational, but it doesn't seem like you know exactly how it's been modified either.
I am not clear on what your problem is with my post or this instrument. It is certainly one of a kind, in excellent condition, original save for the replaced fretless board and slight mod to the pick guard. It is a gem that sounds and plays as great as it looks....
I am quite aware of the modifications to this instrument, as I have spoken with the original owner.
Not only was the pickguard modified, but so was the body. In the picture showing the date on the neck I see the fretboard doesn't extend beyond the end of the neck (I thought maybe that was the original reason for the mod.) Why would the neck have been moved closer to the bridge? It also looks like there are extra holes in the body at the neck joint. An interesting mystery.
Because it seems to still be an active listing on eBay for $4,000 less.
It is not for sale here any longer.
That’s pretty different than “sold.”
It is sold here...what is your problem ?
Our definition of sold is different.
I am sorry ...
It’s fine, we just see things differently
The problem is an instrument needs to be described accurately if it’s listed here including all modifications
It would need to be marked as “no longer available” as it didn’t sell here.
