No pics. Caveat emptor. The price is right?

Be cautious. That looks like a great deal if everything checks out.

Isn't Fender Japan going to be reissuing the VI soon?

The RIs aren't shit, that's about the going rate. And the new MIJs will be far more expensive again.

$1500 is the low end of normal for a M/CIJ in decent condition. If it checks out, it's a decent price; not amazing, but decent. You'd be hard pressed to get a Fender VI, whether VI/Bass VI or a Jaguar VI/Jaguar Baritone Custom for less than $1200 these days, and less than $1500 is tough too. Generally they go for or above $2000.

Haven't heard about these rumors. When do you all think that Fender Japan might reissue it again? How expensive are we talking?
