    I say no, not original. Somebody swapped necks.
     
  6. that was my first impression ... all the screws on the neckplate are flawless, new, mint ... someone did it very very carefully ...

    Wow, someone removed screws without damaging them? Is that even possible? Could it be that they heard of, and amazingly, had access to, the fabled #2 Phillips head screwdriver?

    Can you post some pics of the bass ??
    That would be useful to determine it.

    All kidding aside, the only thing that can be believed about that bass at this time is the Neck is a 2007 MIM Jazz neck (and I'd still like to see pics of it to be sure). I don't think Fender's currently making a Fretless Precision in that price range, so it makes a sort of sense that someone put it together. However, that Precision body could be anything. There are tons of P-Bass copies out there; it could be a MIM Fender, but it also could be an SX, Hondo, or any of a number of other brands. The bass didn't come from factory that way; there is no Custom Shop in Mexico that I've ever heard of. That being said, if the bass is selling for cheap, and sounds and plays great, who cares?

    No, not at all. Is that a joke? I mean, I see the laughing emoticon, but I don't see the joke.

    The body's a Squier. It could be something cheaper, but it looks Squier to me.
     
  16. How you can tell is Squier?
     
  17. Are squier smaller or something?

  19. Squier Precison Special body with Mighty Mite neck

    4070565973_76a4cd9c79_z.jpg

    easy way to see is measuring the width
    or how thick the body
    If its a Fender then the average thickness is 1 1/2" give or take measured at the upper and lower bouts (horns)
    My Squier was much thinner probably between 1"-1-1/4"
    plus the agathis body was super light

    still it was a great sounding bass
    I just hope you didnt buy it for over 250 bucks
     
  20. thank you yellofury ... a scientific answer
