    IMHO, buying that kind of instrument without seeing it for real and playing it is dangerous.

    One year and half ago, I missed a "4001CS" (on ibazar, the website that become eBay France then) from a guy living about 400 miles away from me. Very recently, I learned that was a swindle, the bass was an ordinary 4001, but the guy was trying to sell it for the price of a 4001CS.

    I just congratulated myself not to have taken the risk of buying it on remote relationship with the seller...

    Back to the basses : the JB looks much better than the PB (very personal taste), but it has almost nothing original. The PB looks poor (though I'm almost sure it is, in fact, a great instrument), but seems to be quite original. My vote thus goes to the PB...

    But anyway, for my very personal purposes, I'd buy none of both :D

    All the best,

    That Tele-bass is god-awfully ugly, and Winger sucks, so... neither
  4. that thing looks good.... nothing like a well worn bass...
  5. For a while I kept seeing the bass from Spinal Tap on Ebay from time to time. They were asking something like 17 Grand. I wonder if they ever sold it?

    isn't that p-bass missing the pup cover?

    I saw a 1951 p-bass going for $5000 at A guitar Center in atlanta.. It was in a bit worse looking condition than this one... it played ok... i wouldn't pay $5000 for it though
