    Hmm, I'd ask for better photos... You can't see the logo or anything...

    I agree with the last poster that you can't tell what this is, from the photos and it could easily be a Squier - it doesn't say what it is and people often say Fender on eBay when they are talking about Squier or other makes.

    The only reason I tend to think it's authintic is that there is a "Buy it now" price of $350. To have a buy it now price and no reserve means that he will have to give it up for $200. I emailed about the clarity of a precision. But, again, the fact that there is a "buy it now" price of $350 tells me it's not a Squier.

    Its a Squier - dont!, its certainly not American (wrong number of pickguard screws).

    Well if it IS a Squier, that's messed up for him to try to screw someone like that.

    Welcome to the wonderful world of EBay. Just be careful, & don't do anything unless the sellers claims can be PROVEN.

    This was the seller's response:

    "I paid $350 for it new it's made in mexico it is the original"

    That doesn't tell me much...except is authentic Precisions American Made?

    Yeah - nothing to get upset about - they must be the most common basses around and the most sold - if you take in Squiers, MIMs and 'copies' as well!! ;)
