I mainly play guitar, but have been getting into bass as well. I picked up the following locally a few days ago for $200: 1983 butterscotch USA P-Bass with maple fretboard + fender hardshell case. Great condition, aside from some very minor wear / dings. The condition of the fretboard makes me think that this was hardly ever played, although the A string buzzes at the first fret, so may need a little nut work. It's not too heavy, and seems to play nicely. Going to take it in for a pro setup on Monday. When I first got in touch with the guy who was selling it, he couldn't tell me much about it, other than it was a "real Fender." I asked him how old it was, and he figured it was maybe 5 years old or so - he received it as a gift a couple years ago and never really played it. When I saw that it was in great shape and only $200 for a USA P-bass with a case, I immediately forked over the dough - I guess I should have seen if he'd take less for it, but I usually don't haggle too much if I know I'm aleady getting a really good deal. So, how did I do? What do these normally run out there? I will be keeping it as a player for sure - just curious. Am I right about the color - or is it called something else?
