Found it on Ebay.
Fender Precision '76.
What do you think of it?
A few more.
What does it weigh, and how much is the seller asking?
It's made from Ash so it's probably pretty heavy.. That bass would probably go for $1300
Swamp Ash is the heavy stuff, Northern Ash is pretty light, but either way with that refinishing job $1300 is optomistic IMO.
You have it backwards, Swamp Ash is pretty light, the northern stuff is heavy.
Hes right. The pours in Swamp ash's grain are way more open, I guess to hold more moustiure from the humidity.
When you say "eBay", which eBay do you mean? American, German, somewhere else? I would be very cautious buying a vintage bass privately over the net and especially overseas. If it turns out to be a lemon or a scam, you´ll have hard time getting your money back.
Most eBay stuff like that is a scam, well, it has been to me. It'd be better to find something in a store
Nah ebay is pretty safe if you're smart.. make sure they have a date stamp on the neck... and if the body has been refinished it's pretty obvious. Plus you have to pay through paypal! I've had 3 deals that were scams and I contacted paypal and they got my money back.
