Don't touch it unless it is some long lost prototype (which it isn't) there is no way that thing is genuine!

There was something once called the Telecaster Bass, but it sure as hell didn't look like that. It didn't look like a Tele either, 'coz it was a cack-handed CBS re-issue, but nevermind.

A recent study shows that 8% of teenagers listen to nothing but music with guitars in it. Put this in your sig if you're one of the 92% who isn't a close-minded moron.

It was just a P-bass with a tele-style headstock.

Only had one pickup near the neck.

There was a thread on Talkbass where a guy had a Fender Tele bass, and replaced the crappy stock pickup ("mudbucker" is what they called it) with a Darkstar. Apparantly, it sounds fan-freakin'-tastic.

Yeah, unlike the original which was a Jazz bass with a Tele style headstock (the original was called a Precision bass, but it was more like a modern Jazz bass. Guitar companies like to confuse you).

Exactly, the early 50's P-basses had one single coil near the neck and a tele-style headstock. They are now known as Telecaster basses.

No, the original was not a Jazz with a Tele headstock. The "Telecaster bass" ('51 P-bass) predates the Jazz bass by a few years.

In the early 70's they released the 51 P as a Tele bass, and there are also Fenders shaped like acutal Telecasters with a big humbucker in the neck position, I believe, that one comes from Fender Japan.
