Dunno whether anyone's looked at this.....
States it's a NEOX-12 (cab), pictures of a SHUTTLE 3.0. And description is of a SHUTTLE 6.0

I've messaged seller numerous times, asking for clarification, but recieved no reply.

If there actually IS something 4 sale, all the 3 items. :lol: are great products, but...... risk?!?!??

There are one or two ridiculously overpriced Fender basses on Oz eBay at present, but this one takes the cake.
First bid $15K :rolf:

Actually, if only it was worth that much. My 73 "Under The Milky Way Telecaster Bass would be worth heaps.

It is.
I wouldn't have thought a fretless 78 P Bass was necessarily what people would associate with Alan Lancaster. I seem to associate him with Mustangs mainly. Not doubting the story, but I failed to find him pictured with this bass after a quick google search.

Anyway, hope it is worth $17K or whatever. If only I could get the difficult Mr Kilbey to sign a piece of paper. LOL.

This was on the USA Ebay site - https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Fender ... SwGNxbIDD-

It is bad and ridiculous. it looks like somebody tried to convert / modify a Jazz bass and turn it into a headless bass but failed. They still want US 299.99
