On eBay right now is my dream T-40, well the body anyway. Would love it with a rosewood board. The price is high but probably in tune with what it should be going for. Check the bidding history on this. It reeks of shill bidding. Too bad. Gorgeous bass.

The bidding (especially the names) do look fishy.

I agree, fishy indeed.

The names appear that way as a result of an ebay push to improve security. It keeps bidders identities secret to prevent them being contact by scammers.

When I was bidding on a number of basses a while back I kept getting messages from people in China and it was a real PITA.

I agree the zero feedback bids may be a bit suspect but there are a few bidders with more feedback that seem legit.

Nice looking bass, shame the seller doesn't ship outside the US.

There is currently no way that I know of to determine if bidders are legitimate. I guess if you don't go beyond a preset limit that you determine, it doesn't matter. Problem is shill bidding will artificially inflate the price eliminating the possibility of a good deal.

Nice T-40. It's up over 500 bucks now, and I must say that even if I had five bills to drop, I would definatley wait for one with rosewood and toasters.

Still, even at that price, it's a deal compared to just about any other USA made instrument.

I agree, especially in the UK basses (especially Fenders) with the "Made in the USA" tag do tend to go for rather high prices. Makes these a real steal.

The one that I modified was exactly like that one, except for the wiring having a couple of extra switches added and the body being routed a little bit under the pickguard.
