    just came across this bass online and i hope you guys can help me with this.

    the owner has no clue as in where it's made or when.

    the "made in" markings has worn off and the numbers at the neck plate isn't clear.

    The neck plate doesn't have the fender logo, so i'm not sure whether this is geniue too.

    I've posted some photos of it, hope you guys can help.

    The neck is legit, although the tuners have been changed. The body is not and I'm not even sure what brand it is!

    Looks like a relic parts bass.

    I'd nab it if only to get the neck.

    The neck is a post-1971 for sure because it's a 3 bolt. None of the rest is even close to original looking.
