    Looks pretty rad. It's pretty far from original, but I bet it's plays sweet. I guess if the body is actually an early Fender $1250 - $1500 seems like a fair deal for a cool bass. And the Fletch-style Lakers sticker isn't bad.

    Cool bass, go for it.

    Maybe not much for an investment bass but looks like a sweet player!

    Who knows if it's vintage. Hard to put a price in it...just think about the sum of its parts and don't pay more than that. Can't really verify that it's vintage so don't pay assuming the body is a 60 jazz bass...which would be really rare in that color.

    Not a Fender bridge. Kubicki necks are wonderful. Not more than $650, in my book.

    He's not paying very close attention - serial number is in the high 300,000s, not 30,000s :D
    The "F" is clearly visible on the neck plate. I'd say if any of it is Fender at all, its 70s.

    I wouldn't give $1500 for it.

    Agreed. It's a hyped piece with an old body. So what, nothing original = you are buying someone else's tangent. Nothing sacred about a birdseye maple neck it could be an old Warmoth for all you know.
