    While I don't understand much of what is said on the page, I can see that the seller has no feedback. Also, there is only one pic available, which doesn't show much at all.

    It looks pretty sketchy. I'd pass on this one.
     
  2. The price seems a little steep and I agree with you about the lack of feedback on the seller`s part.

    I wonder if anyone here can verify the year it was made through the serial number.

    thanks again...

    F-Series (late 1965 to mid-1976) (big script "F" on neckplate below serial number):
    100000 to 110000 = late 1965
    110000 to 200000 = 1966
    180000 to 210000 = 1967
    210000 to 250000 = 1968
    250000 to 280000 = 1969
    280000 to 300000 = 1970
    300000 to 330000 = 1971
    330000 to 370000 = 1972
    370000 to 520000 = 1973
    500000 to 580000 = 1974
    580000 to 690000 = 1975
    690000 to 750000 = 1976

    According to this it is 1975.
     
  4. The pix shows next to nothing....
     
  5. I know... awful pic...

    Do those basses (75/76) come with pick up covers?

    They did at the time. Whether the seller still has 'em is another question entirely.

    True. And the description says close to nothing too, especially about the condition. I'd pass on this one.
