    YES!!! I just got a brand new American Made Fender Precision for $500 with all the fixins. I got $650 bucks off because i got purple. Since they are trying to get rid of purple, i get a great deal. I don't care for cosmetics, all i care about is sound, playability, and quality. I feel so lucky to find this deal. I nearly soiled my pants. oh i feel great. I got a musical enema. The sound is incredible. Better change my profile.

    I got a musical enema once. My colonic therapist was humming the song to Titanic.

    If Fender doesn't come out with a lot more non-traditional colors, I'd consider hanging on to it down the road. Small production runs of Fenders in exotic (for Fender) colors have historically appreciated in value very well

    $500-$600 is about the going rate for these...how do you figure "$650 off", unless you mean the list price?

    Victor, Victor, Victor...don't you know the paint job IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PART? ;)

    Seriously, congratulations -- there's just nothing like a new bass to inspire you to play.
     
  9. Hey Victor, I just came over from the Jack Casady thread
    and had to say Congratulations again! You got a purple one?
    Way cool! Who cares about the color? Personally, I think
    that would look dynamite, and, as Rickbass1 said, It may
    actually increase in value over the years because it was
    a custom color. Thank God for overruns and Corporate
    miscalculations. Vive-La-Bass!

    Play dat ting.

    american mades at guitar center and stores usually sell for 900-1000 (out of what i've seen). It comes with hs case, tuss rod adjuster, bridge pin adjuster (isn't a bridge in adjuster just an allen wrench?), cable, strap, and a straplock. I was originally trying to save up for a musicman, but then i saw this deal, so i couldn't resist. Fun Fun Fun!

    what kind of purple?
    metallic purple?
    or that midnight blue that really is purple?
    or just a plain purple?

    I just did the same thing...bought a p-bass hot rod in sunset orange for $500. The guys at the shop said it wasn't selling because of the color but was almost worth buying for the price. Fools. I love the color and I'm grinning ear to ear.

    That very same bass, "with all the fixins" is currently going for $499 at MF.

    The new American Series P's aren't offered in Metallic Purple...I bet if you check the serial number, the first digit is a 7, 8 or 9. American Standard. Still a nice bass.

    All new Amercian Fenders should include all this stuff. It seems from what I've heard on this board though, that a lot of the shops in the US hold this stuff back for some reason - especially cases. If you look on the Fender website it describes all the bits and pieces that should come with a new bass. I've still got all the packets and things from my RB5.

    not really, darkmazda, if go into guitar center, bassnw, your local guitar shop, etc. They sell mia for $900 at lowest, i've seen them go as high as $1000 for mias on sale.
