Hey guys, I couldn't find this thread anywhere, so I am asking here. I purchased a Fender American Standard P-Bass in 2001 and paid something like $650 for it. I paid less than market because I bought it from ebay, but I have no regrets. I think around that time that market price for an American P-Bass was around $800 or so. I haven't shopped for a new bass in a while and noticed at Guitar Center that an American P-Bass now costs $1300 or so. Did they go through a major price increase this decade? Also, I checked the serial number and the bass is a 2000 American Fender as advertised. Can someone clarify this for me? I'm just curious as now a MIM Fender bass is in the $500-600 range now.
