    In the Vanilla Fudge days, Tim Bogert played a Precision with a post-'57 style Precision body and a pre-'57 style Precision neck, or possibly an early Tele Bass neck. He was playing it several years before 1971.

    I saw that bass body on eBay, that's a second-edition (1972-78) Tele Bass, not like the one Bogert played. The seller claims it's from 72 but the pickguard is from no earlier than 74. It's just an old modded bass body allegedly autographed by him.

    DW is right.
    Tim played a white late 50's body.
    50's p-bass neck, tele, shape.
    with a tele style pickup in the bridge.
    I seen him play this bass with Catus.
     
  4. so we are says, it was a p-bass, early p-neck, with a tele pickup. correct-thanks-I saw it to, back then, thru the haze, if you sniff my drift, you know. before what axe somebody was playing made a differnce, and we absessed ( or do I mean obsessed,)over owning the same gear.
