Well, I just picked this up from the Bay for $175 2nd day air shipped. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=320222798278&ssPageName=STRK:MEWN:IT&ih=011 Did I pay too much for it? If so, it's not a huge deal cause I know where I can get my money back out of it. I think these sold for about $249 new & if it's in as good a shape as advertised maybe it's worth what I paid for it. I've played around with one of these at my local guitar store & if I remember right they are pretty light. I really just like fooling around with different basses & I'm a Fender lover, so what the heck. Anywho, ya'll let me know what you think & your NOT gonna hurt my feelings cause it ain't that big a deal.
