    Might sound great. Looks real weird though.

    Might be because it's not a Fender or even a Squier.

    Just walk away... looks like an awful example of a counterfeit Fender. Awful.

    Looks like an Epiphone Rock Bass body with a Squier neck.

    No... no part of that POS has seen the inside of any Epiphone, Fender or Squier factory... It is a slapshod collection of firewood.

    Better off buying an SX or Glarry.

    "very nice bass to play clean Bottom song"

    I'm Sorry...


    What?


    :D

    It has the hard case so I figure you're paying $50 for the case, $50 for the bass. Not a bad deal, best case scenario you get a decent neck and some parts for a project (I couldn't bring myself to play something with a body like that, just feels wrong :roflmao:)

    Looks like a perfect fit in that case, though.
    The only important thing is the seller is more than likely a liar.
    Never deal with liars.

    Yeah, someone should back up and run over it a few times.

  17. Buy it, take the scratchplate off, stick a single back in and cut another scratchplate.

    No shame in having a spare $100 bass. The case is a bonus :thumbsup:

    BTW "Bottom song" probably means seller doesn't speak English as their native tongue.

    I would never abet a counterfeit; it seems a pointless encouragement of dubious behavior. But that's just me...
