    Price looks a little high considering the damage. I'd say no.

    I agree. It's a beautiful bass, but that's one massive ding.

    I know what you mean about having a "beater" bass, but I still advise you to pass on this one. Be patient when looking for a new bass, and you'll eventually find one that's right for you.

    I still dont find it advisable. A beater bass to me has a few - several small dings and nicks; not a huge thing like that.

  11. OMFG even WITH that ding the price is [profanity] steal!!!!

    a brand new (well, it's been sitting in the store for a coupla years now) is around £1,200 ($2000 to be fair!). these basses are awesome tho.

    and this is exactly what i'd want in a P!!!

    oh crap, I've got GAS!!! :eek:

    It wouldn't be the one I would go for!

    I agree totally with this! Especially if you are looking for a new one on Ebay and such websites!

    By the way that ding does look big!

    You my man have got one of the best deals right there. That is a very easy fix. I my circle of friends I have met some brilliant people. One of them Is Dave Seagal owner and master builder at New York bass works. What you have there is a simple fix excluding paint. Any repudible (sp) can fix that in no time flat (heck he told me how to do it). Good luck

    P.S. you got mail

    After looking at the pics again Im not sure if the wood is dented,
    If that is the case and there is no dent just ignore the pm and leave the bass as is and play it!

    If you're looking for a beater bass, then it strikes me that the most important aspect about it would be the way it feels and sounds, regardless of looks. I would personally want to play any beater bass before I buy.

    If you are familiar with how this bass should feel and sound, then go for it. If not, I'd pass.
     
  17. pyrohr, I agree, easy fix and the price is good, go for it Justin........oh, I see you already did. Winning bidder: greendayusa87( 2 ) yeah, sweet deal!
