    Saw this one at Japan auction starting at 100,000 YEN. According to the Japanese seller, the body is from '73 P-Bass (SN 626253) and the neck from '75 Telecaster bass (SN 384127). He e-mailed Billy about this and received a reply from Billy saying WOW!

    Looks like the text is all using a Japanese font, or at very least a font that isn't installed currently

    You need to install Japanese language support. If you're using Win XP, just place the Win XP CD in the CD drive and it will ask you to install Japanese language support. Just click Yes. You must use Internet Exploder to do this.

    If you are using Mac OS X like I am and Safari as browser, it should display the font properly otherwise go to VIEW> TEXT ENCODING and choose Japanese (there are 4 choices).

    100,000 yen is about £500, which is cheap for a 70's Fender... even if it is in pretty bad shape ;-)

    That looks pretty cool, even if his Attitude basses are much nicer!
