    Looks like a clone of some sort.

  4. I see that the Custom shop are using Wilkinson tuners now? They must have cost oh, £25?

    I think we could safely say this is "a bit dodgy?"

    I asked the guy selling it what kind of neck. He Said he knows nothing about the bass this is how he got it. Still not a bad looking bass.

  8. Is it like an unspoken rule or something that when one lists a fake Fender for sale, they must do the most ridiculous thing possible with regards to how the bass is strung?

    Not real. I mean, it's a bass, but it's not a Custom Shop Fender bass!

    Oh it's common. This is one of the weirder ones I've seen, though. The other common thing is putting the bridge saddles through the string holes on the bridge, and the strings through the holes the saddles are supposed to go through. Both are truly baffling!

    Lol. I didn't even notice that. The placement of the decal is bothering me though.

    I'm no expert, but why do the tuners say "Wilkinson" on the back?

    Pretty sure 'Wilkinson' is French for 'Fender Custom Shop'.
