  1. I think the only thing "Fender" about it is the decal.

    Looks like a piece of junk to me. Just my 2 centavos, senor.

    I would get it, mainly because its cheap and good for a beginner.
  4. Well ,if you need a cheap fretless ,and it doesn't increase in bid value it might be worth it!

    But the seller really isn't sure of what he's selling, so any value is arbitrary!

    He's also sold an 'out of Africa' bass before if you check his feedback!

    Personally, I wouldn't touch it !

    The body is ply!! :eek:

    And that neck joint is a nightmare - enough to make you feel ill!! :meh:

    It is basically as bad as you could imagine - no tone/volume knobs?

    I'm sure you could get a better bass in any shop in England for a reasonable price - any Squier has got be a huge step up from this!!

    This is what really annoys me about eBay - it has a certain mystique as it is a hi-tech, internet thing - but basically what you are getting here is all the old crap that people used to sell to junk shops, pawn shops or in car boot sales!

    OK - in those you might occasionally spot a bargain - but extremely rarely - of coure there is no chance of anything decent being missed on eBay! :rolleyes:

    Ordinary buyers are not going to get a bargain and in most cases will end up paying slightly more than they might if they went into a shop, without any customer support - and this is a prime example! :mad:
