What a day today has been. After arguing with my Girlfriend I went for a walk,and went into my local Cash Converters shop. I saw a Musicman SUB for sale at only £99.99 aprox $153. Knowing it was Made in America and was worth more what it was going for, I could not let this pass me by but as with most things money was tight so I put plan B into effect. Last May I bought a secondhand Peavey Cirrus BXP for £250 but could not get use to the 35" scale,so I asked about a swap. The guy was up for it so I walked out the door with an American made bass, £60 & a cheap set of strings. I'm still a bit giddy at the moment but I will take some pictures in a while, I have a couple of questions that anyone with more knowledge on these basses could help me with. The Serial Number is X 01229 what year would that be? And is the pickup the same as the one in the more expensive USA Musicman bass. Are these basses better than the Ray 34 bass that is available now, & finally what for Insurance would you say the bass is worth, I rekon about £400-£500.
