    So while looking around on Craigslist for a head, I found this:
    http://austin.craigslist.org/msg/3564777601.html

    It looks like a decent bass (except for the missing strings and frets), and it's going for cheap.

    Anyone have any idea what these things are worth?

    I see vintage lotus stuff in my area all the time. I would say, given that it needs a refret, it's worth $40-$50 to the right buyer. If it was in 8/10 condition or better, it'd be probably a $200-$250 bass. If it were me, Id trade a fuzz pedal, and turn that thing into a fretless. :)
