Vintage Fender Precision Bass
Does this look legit?
For the love of god, no.
I don't really know a whole lot about real or fake fenders, but I don't get the warm fuzzy happiness I get when i see a fender on here....
Considering it's in Riverside, I should call and offer $25 to see if he'll bite

Thats what I was thinking....
Do a quick search and see how many 'vintage' matching headstock Precisions are around. From there, count all the ones with GREEN logo/print that's in the late 60's / Early 70's style. There may be some vintage in there, but as to how much and which parts...it's a big question mark. There's not much original going on there.
uh - NO!
I don't think so.
The guy just texted me back and says its a 75-76. I told him i need to see some pics of the neck heel and pocket....and asked if its refinished. I dont think I ever seen a matching head stock from that era..... He's also selling a Jazzhttp://inlandempire.craigslist.org/msg/2952866507.html
No matching headstocks. Ever. Until 1980. And that was the P-bass Special.
Tuners look period correct nickel. Neck plate probably is legit. That's as much as it probably goes. Might be a legit neck or body in there but obviously heavily modded.
The short nature of the listing is the real joke.
You offer him $25...if he says no, I'll offer $50. We could go in half way and split the parts
LOL, This is why I love TB!!!
LOL. 1987 is not "vintage." And IMO, I didn't like those basses when they came out with them. Just something about it not feeling particularly "Fender" ...
Are you referring to the Special or the p bass?
I'm still waiting for a reply form this guy...I guess he doesn't want to take the neck off.
Seller has great photo skills too. If I may ask... how much do they want for it?
This is the shot that sells the bass:
The serial on the neck plate dates it to 1976 and was american made in the Fullerton plant. But I think the plate is of another bass
The only thing the serial number on the neckplate proves is the neckplate might be legit.
The special. And if he wanted to sell an actual Fender, that actually is vintage, he'll actually be willing to provide provenance in the form of those date codes on that neck and body. And frankly, both look like they've weathered a storm or two.
Honestly, if you're wanting a Fender PBass, buy one new, so you can at least know what year, what options, what mods, etc., have been done to the bass, and by who they've been done.
Very good point, LOL.
