In the mid 80's, a guitar playing buddy of mine gave a bass - one of those "I got it cheap to learn but bass just ain't for me, you can have it" kind of deals. The problem is the serial number was stamped into the back of the headstock and my friend took possession of the bass with the serial number crudely gouged out. That didn't faze me way back when, but as I got older, wiser and more responsible, I started feeling pangs of guilt. I'm still in touch with my friend but he doesn't remember how he came across the bass. This bass has never been my cup of tea and I've wanted to sell it to someone who would appreciated and use it more than I, but I've always been reluctant due to the serial number issue. So, can I sell this bass legally and if so, would you? Thoughts?
