Okay, so... In an effort to begin to consolidate and upgrade my bass collection I've been hunting for some "staple basses". A Fender American Precision was always number one on that list. I've been searching Reverb and Craigslist, and saving to reach the goal. Out of the blue, I went to Craigslist tonight and saw, "posted one hour ago" and I immediately got in contact with the seller. Her friend owned a music store that closed down and he gave her a couple of instruments. She picked this one out and never played it for about four years before deciding that she just didn't want it around the house anymore. I talked her up, yes UP to $700 with the case. It still has all of the case candy and the plastic over the pickguard. I'm honestly still in shock, but I'm now the owner of a Fender American Precision Bass.
