    I gotta share this with you guys. I am a computer network engineer in North Mississippi so I travle all the time (2-300 miles per day.) I was on my way to a job and came upon a yard sale going on at this place out in the middle of nowhere. I though I saw a bass mixed in with a ton of other stuff so I stopped. Turns out the dude holding the sale is getting rid of a bunch of stuff that his dad, who had a mini storage business, had collected over the years. My eyes were right. In the middle of all this stuff was a 81 Fender J bass. Very dirty but the neck was strait and the electronics looked ok. Hard to tell from all the dirt. Make a long story short, got this bass for $73. Cleaned on it for 5 hours. Looks just like new now. New strings and this thing sounds better than my 04 Warwick. Keep your eyes open, it pays off.
