Scary Fender Bass Stuff on eBay

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Arizona Jones, Apr 14, 2006.


  1. I'm on the prowl for a new Precision Bass and have been checking out eBay just to see what's up there and what the current going rate is for certain models.

    I'll tell you! I've been coming across some scary stuff!

    I don't know what this thing is! Unknown neck! Unknown body! The seller seams to think it's a Precision with a "Tele" neck. No serial numbers anywhere and he wants $675! I guess this seller has a "shop" because he claims to have set the bass up - I guess he just doesn't happen to know anything about Fender basses. It does play "like a big stick of butter" though.

    Really funny! Broken 1956 Precision pickguard for $1800! He won't take anymore pictures of because it's screwed to the wall!? ***? Are you selling it or not!

    I was "eyeballing" this one and thought about making a move on it. I thought it said it was 50th anniversary model, but it doesn't appear to be. It does appear to be made in 1996 - Fender's 50th anniversary. Kind of tricky the way the seller worded it. It's still a real nice "looking" bass.

    I think I just better drive up to Tucson and see if I can find one in person!

    Yeah I really don't get the overpriced pickguard thing, I've seen that before. To me that's like buying a 40 year old pair of chones for $8,000 instead of getting a new pack of Hanes.

    Does the price for the pickguard include the wall?

    And, if it was SOOOOO COOOOOL it had to go on the wall...


    ...no, I don't know how to finish that thought!

    And the pickguard on the wall clearly shows a piece is broken off!!

    I'm not going to take it off the wall, I'm not going to mention it's broken, you don't know me from Adam but trust me; now just hurry up and give me $1,800!!!
