    I’d keep it. More mojo than anything you’ll trade it for :)
    Good for you!

    Before I take it over to Guitar center. Does putting the shimmy bring the value down? I want to make sure.

    I'll give you $25 for that bass and that's the best I can do.

    PS. That bass is awesome. Congrats!

    What are you planning to do with it at guitar center?
    (And no a shim doesn't bring value down)

    That's sweet, I'd hang on to it. He may wanna update some day about how you two are getting along. Then you'll be doing some serious tap dancing to answer. It took me 6 months to find a sweet P, one just fell in your lap. Love the maple fretboard.

I had A white one with A added Jazz pickup, severely devalued it and it was pretty beat, it sold for $1299 on reverb. Just to get A sense of value for you.

    They'll give you half of what you could get if you sold it yourself. Granted it's still all profit for you, but you might as well put it on Craigslist at least for a little while.

    Cool bass.
    Why does it have 3 knobs though? Is there an active circut? Is each half of the pickupwired separately?

    It's a Precision Special, so it's active. Here's a link Fender Precision Special Bass 1980 - 1982 . Nice bass! Love the matching head stock, but with a maple board. That's rare in the world of Fender!

    This! GC will rob you on it. I would take to a good luthier and have it professionally set up and then sell it yourself. You will do a lot better. Good find, by the way.

    Ah-ha! I somehow missed the "Special". Very cool. A Precision Elite was one of my dream basses and I guess this was the predecessor.

    Indeed it was. Much easier to find parts for the Special than the Elite that came after it, though.
