    Dunno. But it ain't this, which is actually a 1968 Tele bass.

    Body does not look original. Seems almost impossible to make a double cutaway body a single cut.

    Back in the day, I had one of them.

    Yeah, looks like somebody cut off the upper horn so it'd look like a Tele guitar.

    Don't remember any in that color; thought they were only in butterscotch blonde.

    Bridge replaced, too.

    All that, AFAIK. I could be wrong...

    Not original, not worth it, unless it plays/sounds amazing.

    I saw that a while back when this guy first listed it on the South jersey CL. Not my thing at all and was very skeptical about the body shape and price.

    I hope u didn't buy it cos doesn't look that genuine....it actually looks a little handicapped.

    That's my own:

    May 1968 with lollipop tuners

    If u re after a tele bass it should at least look like this one

  7. I didn't buy it. It threw up a red flag as soon as I looked at the pics so I thought I would share it here. The top horn area looks like bondo or something lol
  8. That's like looking at a poor mutt puppy that's been abused.
