I've got the current opportunity to pickup a 62/3 Fender Precision locally from a friend of a friend's father. I say 62/63 since everything dates from 1962 except for the neck which is January of 63. Its in very great shape, sunburst, with only minor playing wear. However there is 2 pieces missing from the PG due to shrinking. Comes in the OHSC and the original reciept if the guy can find that too. He bought it new, played it through his teens till his mid 20s and gave up bass. He's asking me $8000, I told him I thought that was too high. He said he had heard that vintage Fenders were going for thousands of dollars and often cost more than a new car. Regardless, he agreed to let me find a fair price on this. What do you think is fair? I don't want to rip this guy off, he seems like a nice enough guy, but I don't wanna be ripped off either.
