Oh, yeah. Hadn't considered that.

He posted more pictures than this, but these give you the idea. He's asking $2200.

Here's all the text he included: "RARE 1977 left handed bass. Antiqua color. Wide maple neck. Comes with original hard case and pickups. Deep rich sound from this bad boy.."

Life is full of misery and unhappiness. And it's all over much too quickly.

Antigua looks like somebody mixed coffee and something coffee should never be mixed with.

I'd be depressed as hell if the only guitar I owned was a Fender Antigua anything.

If you have one and love it, I meant it looks beautiful :)

Fun to learn how Antigua was born:

"Antigua was born an accident. While producing Coronado II guitars in the late 1960’s, Fender made lemonade from lemons when the body binding process burned the edges of their fully-hollow ES-335 competition model."

There's a reason for everything, as they say...
Cool story!
