Ok since 2006 i have been doing a pretty good job on deciding what i should pay for something based on shape/availability/current demand etc. just by watching auctions and doing lots of searches. I have an extremely mint '71 Jazz and now im looking for a P
Problem is....it seems that 1970 P basses are few and far between and they rarely come up for sale locally or evilbay. So finally i put up an ad locally in the wanted section.
Doing my searches it seems that 1969 and earlier on the Fenders seems to be a jump in price and everything 1973 and newer a significant decrease in price (obviously comparing basses in the same condition with orig case etc)
So i know there is alot of TB'ers who have Vintage P experience and can help me out offering this guy a legit price....here are the deets and pics
-1970 Fender P
-OHSC ( or at least a time period case)
-elec all work fine
-some checking in finish
-would say 7 out of 10 condition?
-not sure if orig ash-trays are included yet
What would be a "going rate" to offer on this bass...all help is appreciated. I know Jaymi is in Alaska but chimes in still...hopefully he sees this too. Thanks in advance TB'ers
