    Well at least there's no reserve.
    Geddy Lee used to play a bass shaped like that, I don't have a picture any more so I don't know if it was a P, but that's the only thing I can think of is they were trying to make one like his.

    I'd buy it.

    Geddy has one just like it. He had his P-bass molded into that shape. I'll see if I can find a pic.

    There's a picture or two on the "All the Worlds a Stage" album, I gave it away when I moved cause I just play CD's now. I wasn't sure if it was a P it's been so long since I examined it.
  9. Regardless, if Geddy did or not, that's a disgrace. The least the person who did that could've done would be to put a more tasteful finish on it...

    Well hey, at least the bidding opens at $1.00, rather than $3500!

    The scary thing is...

    I kinda want it.

    Considering how incredibly thrashed it is, it'd be a good way to teach myself refinishing and wiring etc. And I have a spare Jneck lying around.

    Oh, I wouldn't buy it, I was just commenting on where they got the idea from. No he totally shot the vintage value on it.

    You have to admire that there was clearly a matching PICKGUARD, as well.
  15. a luthier should buy it and maybe use it as a cap or something. put some old pbass in a new bass
