    If you are in NJ Today, a guy at the meadowlands flea market is selling a fender USA p bass for $275. I'm not in the market for a bass right now, but that's a good deal. Come buy it so I'm not tempted!

    Ah! Any chance you'd buy it and meet up with me another day? I can't make it down there today.. I'm in northern New Jersey, West Milford. Any issues with it?

    Sounds too good to be true. Better take a real close look at it to make sure it's the real deal. Lotsa fakes out there.

    Didn't look fake, played fine. Needs a setup and cleaning, but not bad.

    And sorry, I left there already. I bet it will be there next week too. A few peavey micro bass amps around today as well, and 3 cassette four tracks... Always an interesting place.

    I'm on my way over to check it out now. The flea market is a pretty big place - any landmarks to look out for?

    One of two things....it wasn't as advertised or.... He got a killer deal and is playing it right now! I hope it's the second scenario.

    Or if the flea markets in NJ are anything like the ones in TX, he got there and realized how many blow dart guns, throwing knives, ninja stars, and funnel cakes $275 would buy and he's having the time of his life!

    Based on flea markets I've been to, that seems more likely. :)

    Most of the vendors selling the old/unusual/used stuff had packed up and left by the time I got there, and the bass was nowhere to be found. If I had needed a 24 pack of Irish Spring soap or cubic zirconia jewelry it would have been ripe for the picking.

    Not sure if the bass sold or I just missed the seller, will give it a go next weekend on the off chance it was the latter, but thinking I just missed out. There was no shortage of the other stuff, but I managed to resist temptation. :)

    Flea markets of that size are always a party though - anybody ever been to the green dragon market in Lancaster County, PA.

    Never been to the green dragon market, or even heard of it, but I am close enough that maybe I should look into it.
