    Just noticed that bass comes with the case. That factory molded case is worth $50-$100.

    Nice. Anxious to here how it is. I’m guessing you’ll make it into a ballsy player

    Place a bet that the brown shag lining is gone?

    How can you tell if a serial number is removed for benign or nefarious purposes?
    :meh:
     
  9. Scratched out? Sanded down? Painted over? Not removed but altered or made unreadable? I've seen that before easily, many times.

    But it just doesn't come up normally in my extensive experience with craigslist.

    Actually I may part it out and sell the case. I really don't need another bass.

    Ok, I grabbed it. Pics coming soon. Other than the hack paint job, the bass plays and sounds great. Not my sound though. Neck is P-bass'ish but comfortable. It has the coveted knobs and pickups. The case is in excellent condition. Whoever bet against it....loses! ;)

    Too funny.
    :D

    Nothing better than a nitpicker in denial who clearly did not fully read my post. Once again:

    "If I really wanted one I'd wait and get a good original one for around the same price".

    Do you want to debate that that isn't exactly what I wrote?

    So here we are, on this ridiculous tangent because you needed to substitute "same" for "around". And if you don't think that $150 and $199 are around the same price, that's your problem not mine.

    :meh:

    The last bass that I bought on CL, which was sold by a pastor, had the serial number intentionally removed. I got my money back. Pretty hard to trust a stranger about something that questionable and going forward if I tried to sell it someone else would have to trust me, who couldn't possibly know the real story.

    I've seen it several times and have friends who've seen the same. A buddy of mine has an early PRS bass he can't give away because of this. He was surprised.
