I was in GC in San Marcos, CA and saw a '07 USA P. It was butterscotch w/ a rosewood fretboard for $699. I asked if it was an '08. The guy came back and said it was an '07 and was actually $550 plus tax. It was on layaway and was put back out on the floor. There were some nicks on the back of the body by the neck plate, but nothing that would effect playabilty. It's the same bass I got about a year ago for $608 out the door. I think I got a great deal and thought I would pass this deal on to you TBers.
