  1. How much should i be paying for a second hand mexican Fender precision bass.

    its in great condition and the price is £200 ($377)

    Does this sound like a good deal?

    On this side of the pond that bass would probably retail for
    around USD 200 - 250. The price you mentioned seems a bit high. Providing you have tried the bass, like the playabilty, sound and there are no deadspots on the neck I would offer
    the seller around 30 pounds less and see how he reacts.

    Good luck

    New MIM p basses go for $360-380 USD in the US. Probably doesn't help you, though.

    A new MIM P bass in the UK is typically about £350...with a bit of haggling you could get £20 maybe £30 off ,so £200 for a mint condition one seems reasonable to me......still worth offering £180 to see if you can get £10 or £20 off! :)
