Zooming the pic seems it is an Indonesian Squier or maybe a MIJ Fender but I an't tell for sure.

Hard to tell from the angle of the pic, but I think it’s a MIJ P bass. I’m pretty sure all Squire basses have the truss rod adjustment at the base of the headstock right above the string nut. Again, hard to tell with the pics that the seller posted.

HI TOM!

Looks a bit like a MIJ P-bass, the body- bridge, and knobs- but look carefully at the headstock, you can just barely see the decal. It looks nothing like the three MIJ Fenders I own, two of which are p-basses..here's my Lake Placid Blue one, after making a mint green guard for it. Note the 'Fender' decal placement. The tuners on the CL bass also appear to be the shorter Squier type. It could be a Frankenbass of some sort.

It looks like it says fender on the headstock but on my mij fenders my decals are a little further toward the nut. And yes both my squires have the trus rod adjustment in the headstock while the fenders are at the other end.

Decal is hard to read but I don’t recall ever seeing that colour on an mij.
The decal doesn’t look like the silver one which was on my ‘57 RI or the black one on the 70’s model. Would request clear detailed pics before parting with cash.

If I remember correctly, MIM p-basses are quite rare lefty.. if they even made any at all.. I've never seen one.
But I do seem to recall this light metallic blue offered as a color on the rightys.

I have you seen the entire headstock in one pic?

Might say "Squier" or "Squier Series". Or might show where it was rubbed off.

A quick serial search gives me:
SQ. STD P-BASS LH RW AWT
Which I suspect is Squier Standard P Bass, lefty, rosewood and AWT do not know

I used to have a MIK Squier that had the big Fender logo on it and only said Squier real tiny, looks like this is might be the same thing.
