    Good point, I see no reason to hide the serial number unless he's full of it. :rollno:
  5. Or possibly it is of dubious origin. ie. stolen?

    If the Bass Emporium was selling it then I'd consider it to be valid and the price would be say $10,000. for that obscene amount you can get at least 10 instruments electric guitars and basses.......Its just a cheap way to get advertising and its works. Let the dude donate it to the Smithsonian or the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.................................:cool:

    All Fender stuff had neck stamps by 1964. Actually a little earlier. This guy is off the charts on his pricing tho.

    I'm going to go out on a limb here and say it's not going to fetch $55k.

    15 years ago a 1964 gold sparkle Stratocaster sold for $60K. I photographed it for Vintage Guitar Magazine. This bass sure looks like the real deal.

    all of the 1961 Fenders that i've seen had the date written in pencil, and IRRC they went to ink stamps in 1962. my seafoam green '62 p bass definitely has an ink stamp- april of 1962 (slab board). the later '62's had radiused 'veneer' boards.

    55 Grand, lotta bread. A BMW 5 series. Or, many basses & gear you can actually use and play with.

    i'd agree, minus the BMWs which I'm not too fond of.

    It is way overpriced but a cool bass.

    What is it really worth? $20k? $25k?

    What gets me the most is that, even if someone is willing to pay $55,000 for this...the guy still wants $65 to ship it.

    You would think he would kind of throw free shipping in or something:meh:
