    Looks 60’s Japanese to me, but I’m no expert. $300 seems a little high though.

    Thank you for the reply... I was just going off what I have seen on the price guitar center and reverb both show them around 350 and this one looks a lil more odd with the fake maple kneck and she is a player with perfect intonation but the Frets are horrible thin thin thin

    These frets were common to most basses through the mid to late 60's. (Fender included) They are referred to as "banjo frets" and some players still prefer them. Also common then were flat-wound strings, which are a good match for banjo frets because they didn't wear the frets down as later round-wounds did. So you joined tb today to ask the value of a bass you want to sell?

    I'm more interested in trading for a better sounding full scale or amp head

    Since you're new here I suspect the mods will spare you, but on TalkBass you're not allowed to ask the value of a bass without a Supporting Membership. That being said... I dunno if I'd pay $300 for that. Might be the upper end of the market for that. Just my best guess though, if someone offers you more for it then go for it.

    Thank you for letting me know I had no idea there was a rule against asking value
