    "my dad bought this bass new in1957,
    i played it up until 1978 but quit using it because it still has the origanal 1957 strings on it and he woulnd let me change them.
    so it hasent been played since 1978.
    call bobby at 336-399-4273
    or email ZL9001985@YAHOO.COM FOR PICS "

    hmm. typos aside, sure looks good. If I had the cash, I'd drive over to take a look.... C'est la Bass

    He won't get that much locally - I don't get these dudes that think people are walking around with $20,000 in their pocket...he'd be better off trying to sell it on Ebay, to a Vintage store, or lowering his price WAYYYY down

    Stupid question perhaps but can leaving a bass in a case untouched for 32 years cause problems? (neck warpage, electronics??).

    Maybe he doesn't really care if he sells it. If someone really wants it they can make an offer.

    Did they really make those cases back in the 70's? Hard to believe he just bought a case for it out of the blue three years ago :bag:

    A '57 P is no longer a bass, it's a collector's item. If I had one and wanted to sell it, I would *not* sell it on line. I'd contact a reputable dealer and get it appraised before I did *anything*.
