Alright so a year or two ago I walked into a music store and this old beat up P-Bass caught my eye. It was yellow, and had cracks through the finish like you wouldn't believe, dents, dings, a decal of a naked woman.. you get the idea. I picked it up and it was the best feeling bass I have ever played. I still remember it like it was yesterday. That neck.. But it was over a grand (don't remember the price exactly) and I was in no position. Anyway I have some money on my hands and I would like to know.. are all 70s Precisions like this? When looking for an old Precision are there certain years to look for? Certain years to avoid? What about 80s? What type of finish is on these basses? I'm going to the city tomorrow to look for one so I'd appreciate your input. Thanks.
