Fender late 70's/80's?

  1. Could someone give a quick run-through of the "deal" with Fender basses from the late 70's/early 80's?

    What are the "good" years? What to look out for? For the life of me I can't seem to find any good info, and I know I've heard so much about the bullet truss, when the 3-bolt disappeared, light woods, special models, vintage models, heavy woods, dull pickups......

    I've seen a nice-looking 1980 P-bass in CAR in an ad here in sweden...but what to look out for...hmmmm.

    Anyone care to help? :)
