Newbie here at playin and the forums. (First Post) I been playin and taking lessons for about 6 months. My uncle visited and said he would give me his old bass. Its like a 77 or something jazz. I want it real bad cause my bass S**ks. He said i could have it but I couldnt sell it. He said it looks like a Marcus Miller that I see in the mags. He said the got it new in 77. Is this really worth a lot of money? cause my folks told him not to give it to me. Just wonderin. I'll try to get more info on it tonight. Thanks _________________________________________ Updated Post He said he bought it new in August of 77 at GC SN S738847 Its Maple/ash says it's pretty heavy ( does that change the value?) It's like new almost only light scratches on the back no gouges. (He got married and put it away) Guys Thanks for your words.. I don't think I want to take it... but I wana play it for a while and give it back.. Your right he's worth more than the bass. $1000 to $2000 ????? How can I find out how much its worth to tell him?
