    You can do better. It's super valuable for sure, but it's also hashed. There's a line between "relic" and "decomposed." Sure, I haven't held this bass, but just look at the condition of the fretboard. It also looks like somebody put large frets on the thing.

    If it could be proven to be all original, in that condition and in today's market I think he could get up to $8,000. In better condition, and/or back in the dot-com boom '90s, it could have gotten the asking price. If even one component is non-original he's in for a sad reality check.

    $18000.00 for a Nash?

    That's a well worn "58".

    A friend sold his 58 P last year(same color)

    For around $12000.00.

    It was a 9 out of 10.
    Much better condition than this bass.

    Go figure?

    ugh tell me about it, my '99 Jazz bass is just soaking! It's going to take at least 40 years for it to dry out and get that tone machine thing going on :(

    Ouch, that thing looks like it's been gigged by a man-sized hedgehog (with poisonous needles). :D

    Also it says he is in Utah in this one?

    Is he a fraud?

    Whoever put that thing on that site probably thought it was a necessity for Internet auctions from spending too much time skimming through ebay auctions.

    Even if I had the money or gave a damn about how vintage or original it is I would still never buy it.

    This takes the whole vintage thing over the top. I normally love a nice old P-bass but this thing is just terrible.
