    Looks like a fender cow poke.

    With a tampered head stock maybe?

    Interesting ....cow poke.

    Dont' think it is a tempered headstock, I think it looks like a early 90s headstock or a Fender Urge Bass headstock.

    It's a Mexican Stu Hamm Signature.

    Certainly looks like a cowpoke to me, and a nice one too.

    I'd buy it :D

    Correct, and not a Stu Hamm sig.
  9. Btw those are great basses there is a club for them here, only problem is the necks are hard to replace so make sure its got a good neck. I really like the looks of that one.

    The Stu Hamm sig has 24 frets, 2 J pickups, and a body-mounted output jack. This is a Fender Precision Special IIRC, otherwise known as a cowpoke.

    Many thanks to you all!
  12. These may look the same to some people but if you look closely, there are a few stealthy visual clues indicating that they are indeed not the same models:

    Steve Harris sig

    Tony Franklin sig

    Mike Dirnt sig

    Stu Hamm Urge

    Fender "Cowpoke"
