    Hello, found this beauty on Instagram. It has a Fender neck, but I never saw the body before. Does anybody knows what this is? Thanks.

    That's a home-built with a faux relic :vomit: finish on it. I'd take a hard pass on this one.

    i believe I recently saw a post about this model bass, i don't believe it to be a home built model. i specifically remember the thread because half of the responses were moaning about neck dive.

    A one-off or an available "series/option body style", so to speak?

    I'll still hard-pass on it, just not my COT.

    It's a Fender CS but I forget what it's called. The name was Hispanic in nature if I recall.

    it looks well-luvd and toneful, I'll bet it's a killer steal for under $400. what'r they asking?

    Yeah, probably not. These retail closer to $10k based on the other thread...

    Unless someone is willing to pay for it, which there are, so it's apparently worth it to some people.

    Some one could like it, some -not. The same - the sound and price. I don't at the most.
