    Saw this in the local craigslist... would obviously do some more research and try to get a better story of the bass than the two fuzzy pictures, but its got me curious..


    I know '79 is falling off the edge of vintage, but still, is 750 for a 30 year old all original p not intriguing?
  2. I have been wrong before. But I am gonna say that the pickguard is not original.

    $750...i'd bag it...not a super deal, but worth it to me.....you can almost get a new MIA P for that.....you can barely get a MIJ P that's 20 years old for that now....
  4. Personally, I'd say its a 1982 range bass. the pickups are a dead giveaway of a bass from that era (if they are original). Fender had parts from the late 70's era that made it to the early 80's.
  5. Here is an example of one. this one does show a serial # of 1983, but many examples exist of 80's basses with a 79 serial #.

    I would buy it, if all original.
