Hey Tim I saw that and was very interested. Happy that it's gone to a good home though. I hear you re the old jazzes. There are only a few select gigs that I take my 62 J to now. I bought a 62 J RI a few years ago for the very same reason. :-)

Do like the look of that Microwave Oven in this weeks TM Bass Guitar.

As for the Jap P surely the best example ever of how not to bid on an auction.

last week I saw an auction on TM - someone was selling a used Ashton bass amp 40w - they had $450 on it!!
I've seen a couple of these in the last 6-8 months on TM for around $90-$150 so thought that $450 was a bit steep
I felt the urge to ask a question and tell the seller they are dreaming if they can think they can get $450 for it
but I bit my tongue...

I agree with you. If you look at pic 5 showing the back of the neck / headstock it looks like there has been some work done to it - possibly a headstock repair or even a headstock replacement. I wont be bidding on it.

Yea I thought that too, the whole angle of the headstock appears off. I think its a decal on the headstock. The serial number should either be on the front or back of the headstock or the base of the neck, right? Can't see it anywhere. Dodgy. I think it's a counterfeit.

It's a Mexican P Bass
That's how Fender kept the price down but put California on it
Probably made 2001-4.... Some may of had made in USA on front headstock

I think it's legit. I guess this is a good example of always trying to play an instrument before purchase.

I don't believe the headstock has been repaired. I think it's the photo angle/shine.

I went into cash converters to have a look at that one. Pretty sure it's a knock off, but either way it plays awful. Wondering if I should have a word to them, would be gutted if some kid ended up buying it thinking it was genuine...

Seems to have gone quickly but a great buy for someone, Foal. If it is the one that was listed earlier I know the seller, a good bloke who bought a Bergantino cab from me a while ago. I didn't rate the Ashdown heads until I discovered that the tube heads are in a different league to their other stuff.
The other great deal for a tube head currently on TradeMe at the moment is the Traynor YBA200 for only $500. A gift at that price.
