    That's a "Thunderbird II" with one pickup. I have one just like it, though a little bit short of "mint."

    Seven long seems pretty high to me, but if the condition is indeed mint with no checking and no mods at all, with a mint case and all the covers and whatnot, I suppose it could go even higher.

    It's a great bass, BTW.

    If I were you, I'd just tell him that it's worth about $150, but tell him you'll give him $200 because he's your friend.
