Bumped into one of these locally, and it seems like an almost perfect candidate for a "project" that I'm intent on setting up for my bass-playing son. Black/maple P-Bass clone, with a weird headstock that refers to "Valley Arts Custom Pro Shop" as the designer behind this piece. The bass is in decent condition for a 25-year-old instrument, needs a setup and I'd probably swap out the electronics since I was not all-that-impressed with the stock offering. I've played a couple of *real* Valley Arts guitars back in the early 90s along with a few Samicks from different eras, but have never ran into one of these. More than anything else, I'd be interested in finding out what the body is made out of, since it's remarkably light for a full-size-Precision. Some idea of its market value would also be appreciated. Thanks in advance for any and all wisdom fellow TB members can share on the matter at hand.
