Mystery vintage P-Bass w/ unknown "Tracer" fretless neck
I recently purchased a third bass, so I put up my old Ibanez EDB-400 for sale (was asking 200$). Instead I was offered a trade against a fretless bass that is in fact a P-Bass from the 70's turned fretless with a made in USA neck of the mystery brand "Tracer".
Since the neck has been changed, I have no serial number, nor any way to determine if the bass is actually legit. Nevertheless, it plays great. The guy said he had tried a bunch of fretless necks back then and just felt this particular one was the best.
My questions are :
1) Is there any way I can tell if this bass is legit?
2) Just out of curiosity, how much could it be worth?
3) Is there any way to erase the Tracer logo, or to replace it with a Fender one?
That doesn't really look like a Fender 70's P body. Possibly stripped and refinished w/ a replacement pickguard and knobs?
Um that bass is worth $50 bucks and something I expect to see in my grubby local pawn shop. That body is NOT fender and that neck wasnt born fretless,it was made fretless in a poor fashion, lots of splinters when the frets were pulled.
Ah I thought you hadn't done the trade and were asking for advice on if to do it or not. If you like it and are happy that's all that matters.
