    Does this bass look like the real deal to you guys? It's on ebay and I'm thinking about it, but there's no return policy and I'm wondering how you know for sure if it's American made or not. The serial number seems to indicate it's a 2000 or 2001, but that's all I can tell.

    The pictures look great, though.

    Looks like the real deal to me. Is there some reason you think it's a fake?

    No, not at all, I just don't have much experience with bass guitars. I'm a guitar player who wants a bass for my home studio, so I figured it couldn't hurt to ask for guidance.

    Frankly, it looks like a great bass to me I just can't understand why it's going for so cheap. But then maybe that's what everyone else is thinking, too.

    Thank for the feedback!
