American Vintage '75 or Made in China?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by DoctorZee, Jul 31, 2019.


  1. Saw this posted for sale in my area. The seller's description says it is made in China, and the price is in line with that assumption. But the serial number comes back as an American Vintage '75 (I think from 2007?). But then again, the paint job looks like it's some kind of refinish? Basically, I don't know what the heck is going on here. Any ideas?

  3. Only the neck is from a American Vintage '75, maybe?

    Nope. No bullet truss rod from what I can tell.

  5. I wasn't even familiar with bullet truss rods until now. That does seem to be the smoking gun (pun intended).

    Not what claims. Unless you have money to blow and must have it...I'd walk away.
     
  7. In fairness, the seller is not claiming it to be an AVRI. I was just trying to figure out why it seemed to look like a duck and quack like a duck.
