I had one just like it back it 1969, no kidding paid $250 used for it (time payments) . Real beautiful bass but don't get nostolgic, it never sounded like a real bass it is a bass guitar. I ended up trading it for a Fender P bass. I don't think its worth more than $400. I know the Phil Lesh and Jack Cassidy lure but when I went Fender, I knew the difference. Today you have those Acoustic Basses, same deal to me they are not for me. However it sure is purrty, isn't it?
