I need your opinions... I recently picked up a 1997 Fender Am. Deluxe Precision Bass on eBay. Go figure...the neck and body are severly misalligned to the point that even using the full adjustment to string spacing on the bridge, proper string spacing is not possible. Turns out that it is not the original neck for the body, according to Fender Customer Service. Of course, Fender is not responsible. I don't want to install an aftermarket bridge (e.g. BadAss Bridge). I favor the original design, string-through-body bridge. So...to fix the problem, filling and redrilling holes in the body to relocate the bridge, seems to be the 'solution'. Cost est. $100+. ***Question: Given the (undisclosed) mismatched neck and body serial numbers, AND the required surgery to the body, How much would this lower the value of the bass? Personally, I would never have bid on the bass if the mismatched neck and body had been disclosed...and then, the salt in the wound of a neck misallignment... How much less would you consider the value of the bass? Otherwise, I like the neck profile, and overall condition is good. I used Buy-It-Now for $750. + shipping. The Seller says, "He didn't know".
