    I couldn't pass up a deal on a used natural USA p-bass at Guitar Center today :) I'm thankful for low interest credit cards :eek: Here's the bass in all it's glory (Sorry for lo-fi pic):

    250 after beating on the sales guy, but that'a a different
    machine.

    It's a mint 2001 USA p-bass i got w/ a new case for 575. It sounds wonderful and has top notch construction :) What year did the necks get the graphite reinforcement?

    infect...did they give you the accessory pack with the instrument? It should come with a clear poly bag containing a T handle ball-end hex wrench for the truss rod (a regular L shaped allen wrench will mess up your pickguard), a cable, a strap IIRC and a polishing cloth.

    I bought an Am P Bass at a GC blow out and had to really bug them about it until they handed it over. They ususally just throw them all in a drawer behind the counter...

    Pretty bass!!!! congrats!!!

    I'm not sure if the "American Standard" series had graphite, I think they may have, but the "American" series basses definately do...along with that yummy bridge that can be strung through body or through bridge as your heart desires.
