IMO, it's not a genuine 1977. To start, look at the pickup routings alone.

* Sting Rays 1 & !! were 6 String Guitars, not Basses. Only the Sabre Bass had 2 pickups

* Body has wrong shape. Also should be slab rather than contoured

*Tuners have wrong gear ratio.

* Odd bridge shape with odd serial.

* String-through holes not evenly spaced

* Serial should be on the neck plate and not the bridge.

* Neck is wrong and skunk stripe on rear is too narrow.

* Pickup routing...didn't leave the factory like that..

Yeah holy crap that is fake. Looks like someone made those pickup routes with a chisel. The end of the neck is way too rounded. The bridge securing studs are wrong as well. It almost looks like someone got a hold of some real parts somehow and made that thing.

I didn’t click the links. But I read the links, the urls. “radikal.ru” ?
Reeeeeally ?

Many times I prefer to judge a book by its cover and feel zero reason to check out the inside. Like every time I see “.ru” thaz all I need to know on a need-to-know basis. Call it a prejudice, but it’s justified. And I have a similar prejudice about Nigerian Princes ... plus a few other categories. Works very well for me.
