    Anybody have an idea what one of these would be worth?

    I bought my fender Bullet bass back in '84 and it was $230 total w/case. With tax it came out to $246. I wouldn't pay more than $40 for the case.

    Depends on the condition of the case and whether is was for the Bullet 30,34 or 40. Bullet basses in excellent condition are currently valued from $575 to $725. Having an original case in excellent condition pushes the bass closer to the that upper number. To the right buyer, assuming excellent condition, you might be able to get close to or even just over $100.

    I didnt know there was a bullet 40. I have a bullet 34, and it has the original case, it is a little beat up with a broken hinge.

    I bought mine in Oct of 1982...maybe Nov, but I paid $225 for case and bass. Olympic white with maple neck. still have it, my first bass!

    It has a serial number of 00002246 prolly an early production run....I would never sell it. Plays great , still, with only a few dents/dings.

    yah, the case would be about $100, more than $75, and less than $150.

    Unless there is some special club of Bullet Bass Owners, that would drool over the original case.

    They are a very special bass, it was the poor mans Pbass. I could not afford the Pbass, so I got a Bullet. Made in the USA ....for about half the price.
