    What's you opinion? Is it legit? The pictured accessories (esp. the vintage cable) seems to be from a 57' am. vintage... I'm wondering......

    Anyone know this seller?

    Thanks

    Nothing more about the seller though.

    Anyway the bass is authentic

    Cheers,

    I'm not an expert, but it looks legit to me. My buddy has one of these and it has a super awesome neck profile that really sets it apart from other P's and J's. He's turned down an offer from me to trade for my 72 P bass, that's how much he likes it. I hope you enjoy.

    I think the bass is legit, but I'm surprised that the tuners aren't stamped with a "Fender". I'm sure they are quality tuners if it's a CS bass, but surprised nonetheless.

    The bass in the picture is legit. Quick question though...what is the difference between a 57 AVRI and a this custom shop bass...they look identical besides price?

    You realize this is a reissue, right? It's a new bass copy of the vintage. Just making sure...

    Yep, I know. It's a 2011 custom shop replica of a 59'...

    Good point about the "F" logo not on the tuning pegs, but period wise, there was no logo in 59... The logo was there I think from the CBS period and later (end of 66)...

    That is a super nice looking bass. And for a CS Fender, that's a decent price.

    The pickup must be, instead of a '57 Vintage, a '59 Custom split, like the one on Green Day's Mike Dirnt Signature Precision.

    Machineheads, that could be HB2 like on AVRI'57 look like Hipshot HB1...

    Cheers,

    Great looking bass, man I never liked these colors before but WOW! This is gorgeous, I guess they're growing on me.


    And I've been looking at a bunch of CS basses lately and the price (based on what I've seen) is pretty sweet too.

    Great score if it all checks out. Enjoy it.


    Gotta say it again........Damn that's pretty.

    It really is an awesome looking bass. The seller deals in a lot of custom shop guitars and feedback is excellent. We expect a full review once you get it!
