    I was offered a 2003 american highway 1 j bass for $700 CDN, which is about $560 US. It's sunburst with no gloss finish. I know its not a shady deal, because it's the bass my teacher has been playing with me for the last year of lessons. I'm thinking its a screaming good deal. thoughts?

    They typically sell for $900 CAD new. Of course, that's after taxes, etc.

    I think his price is a little high. He might be expecting you to offer less, which is what I would do to start. It's a nice bass, hope you get it!

    That price is a little high. Does that price include a case? There was a used one at GC I was going to buy for $400 w/case US.
