At the local shop they had a Silvertone P-bass on the used rack. But it wasn't used, it still had the plastic on the pickguard and on the tuner screws. The decal was kinda peeling off the head stock, but overall it was completely brand new. Looked like it had just been sitting for a long time. The price on it was $175, I bet I could get it down to $150 or even more. My local guy is usually cool about deals and working on prices. Especially when his stuff has been sitting awhile. What do you guys think? Would you get it? Are these okay basses? I don't know jack about Silvertones, except alot of people used them for first instruments.
