    Ok I keep running into deals..... And need some sane advice

    #1 MIJ Steve Harris Bass 9 of 10 cond no case offerd $725.00 see if he will take

    #2 1999 MIA P-bass stock no case $500.00 black

    Want the harris to have but to pay the premium for a used MIJ w BA2 and 1/4 lbers is silly. I could get a MIA and upgrade it to the harris but wouldent get the LPB/Red PG.......
    What say you?

    I also live near Detroit, and saw those two basses. I almost bought the P-bass, but I've already got a 2006 blonde American, so having two is pretty silly. My opinion on the American: it's a great bass, the build quality is fantastic, and for that price, it's an excellent deal. I paid full price for mine, and felt it was worth it.

    As for the Harris, those are pretty rare, and even if you payed $1000 for it, you could sell it again for $1200 and nobody would notice. MIJ instruments are also very well-made.

    The choice is yours.

    The '99 MIA P-bass is awesome. I had one in midnight purple. Sorry I ever got rid of it.

    I paid $500 with a Fender hard case though.
