    bridge placement, tuners, and matching headstock indicate to me that its a fake...
    i think.

    and the back of the neck.

    Someone is trying to sell it as a P Bass & I was pretty sure it wasn't but couldn't figure out what type of Fender it was.

    Way fake. The headstock looks like it's had one too many hamburgers.

    That is most definitely a fake. A most non-Precision one at that!

    That thing is hideous. There's no way that its intonated correctly (unless its got a short scale neck on it). How much are they asking?

    they are asking for 150$.

    I am pretty sure if you took 135$ off, it would be a good deal..for firewood

    What isn't wrong with that bass? Heck, you can see the decal is placed on top of the finish without any clearcoat over it and the headstock is the wrong shape, and what's with that truss rod nut cover? The bridge looks cheaper than the one on my Squier, too.

    I doubt fire would want to burn that thing; it looks that fake.

    Fake just cries out from it.
  18. It may be "P-TYPE BASS".But,the big "F" didn't make it.
