    part of the serial number is scratched off. :( Should I stay away?

    It's a Fender, btw...don't think it is marked as a second.

    Thanks,

    my dad told me, "if it seems too good to be true, it usually is."

    Well that's true. The seller bought the bass at a flea market a couple of years ago, and told me that he contacted the police, who basically treated it as an unclaimed item. Maybe I won't bother...

    Why not? I don't see much risk, unless you plan to flip it. If it suits you and it's a good price, go for it.

    Pretty good chance that it was stolen at some point.
