60's Jackplate on Ebay

Postby (clasbas) » Sat Jan 13, 2018 3:43 pm

I was thinking that the register and/or the forum might want to be aware of this detached FCxxx jackplate, since I guess it would be yummy for a forger.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/132468340121?ul_noapp=true

I would be at least a little bit more wary if I was offered, say, a -66 4001, not in the register, with FC jackplate.

Am I going too far/being too paranoid here? :)

Well, since they have covered the actual number, there's not a lot that can be done. If we knew the full number we could enter it as "butchered," but without it, well...
I have NO idea what to do with those skinny stringed things... I'm just a bass player...

This isn't it, but I'm always on the lookout for the original jackplate for one of my Ricks, and I know who would have swapped it out...

No way to know for sure, but it is perhaps this one. FC 803.

I almost had this happen to me when PW "accidentally" put the wrong jackplate on a restoration. Luckily I managed to get it back. Good luck Ash!
