I need some advice!

  1. Im thinking about trading my 2001 Fender MIA Strat (which i hardly ever play since i have switched over to bass) for a 1971 Gibson eb-3. Im not an expert on Gibson basses, but it looks to me like the neck pickup and volume and tone controls aren't original. I was wondering if this is a fair trade or am i getting ripped off?

    It would have to be a pretty nice bass for the trade to be even. You may be better off selling the Strat, and buying another used bass, idk.

    Do you have experience as a bass player? Why do you want a "vintage" EB-3?
