This looks so wrong to me, the alignment of the control plate to the body rings alarm bells.
I thought the 75 has https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/BASS-GUITAR ... 438.l2649a triangle 3 screw neck plate?

Definitely not a Fender. The control knobs look a lot like the ones on that red Chinese knock off, we complained to eBay about, last year. My guess is another Chinese counterfeit.

And yet- the bridge pickup finds itself in the 70s position from the look of the pic.

Greg, I am not disagreeing for one minute but this is a strange one.

Dodgy as a three dollar bill. Look at where the neck joins the top of the body.

I kind of like it. Reminds me of a Wishbass, I wouldn't pay $1000 for it.
