He's got the neck for sale in a separate auction.
The mind boggles.
Not only did he cut the horn of the treble side of the body, he ran the bass side through the same table saw. Hopefully done when this was just a used bass before they became collectable.
At least the seller knew enough to call him a bum, probably since swear words would have been deleted.
At least it comes in it's own, custom fit body bag.
What a shame!
But I bet if the PG and shield is original and not screwed up, it's probably got to be worth near the $135, yeah? People seem to pay (what I personally deem to be) WAY TOO MUCH for true vintage parts like that.
Yeah ... Somebody will pay at least $100 for that pickguard.
I'm not sure if I've seen a worse disaster than this. Putting that leather cover on was just making a bad situation worse. The only thing I can remember that was as bad as this was the guy who glued shag carpet to a vintage bass.
It's lumber now.
Can't wait for someone to come in and tell us to "put up or shut up" because we didn't buy it
I feel like I just witnessed an autopsy without warning
Just when my faith in humanity was starting to rebound...this.
Yeah but I bet it was mega cool in 1977!
Hopefully the guy who did that is somewhere where he no longer has access to dangerous tools and his only creative outlet is weaving baskets.
Meh. In 1964 it was just a bass. If someone did that to a new P bass today nobody would care. Clearly that bass was modded years ago. Probably in the late 60s or early 70s. And back then it would have been like doing it to a 2011 P bass today.
Sure, it's understandable that you guys wish the 64 body was in tact. But personally attacking a guy who was just getting creative back then is ridiculous. There's no way he would have cut it up had he known it would be worth a stupid amount of money today.
No, it wasn't.
Actually, you'd have to pay me to take it. I'd name it Sniffles and bury it in the backyard.
Looks screwed up to me. Re shaped, gouged... maybe the center part of the body is usable and someone can attach re cut sections to bring it back to it's correct shape?? Why bother? How brutal.
WTH indeed. . .
maybe one of geddy's old basses?
