    Words Cannot describe my joy! This bass sounds so incredible, it is just so juicy and punchy! An Incredible Bang for the buck ($675)! It is in excellent condition, all original. It is a natural finish with a maple fretboard black pickguard and i got the bridge and pickup covers! I got the original case too! I will post pics soon! YAY! LONG LIVE THE P BASS! And J bass

    Congratulations on your recent score. I once owned a '76 P with a maple board. That is one very solid bass.

    Enjoy,
    Bones

  4. Well I don't really have any questions....

    But I'm glad to see that you're so happy! Whenever I see someone this psyched about anything, it makes me a little happier. :)

    Think of it as a trickle-down happy economy.

    Ya man this place is great, they also threw in a fender concert series amp for my dad for 250, and it usually runs for 550! And they took 75 for me too. So long live the independent shop!

    Actually, I think that a lot of stuff that Fender put out in the 70's is pretty darn good. Just my personal opinion, do some of you agree?
     
  7. The 70's basses are pretty damn good in my oppion too.

    70s Fenders get too bad a rap IMO. Quality control became poorer during the CBS years, but that certainly does not mean all 60's Fenders are better than 70's ones, it merely means that a somewhat higher percentage of the 70's Fenders are inferior quality. I'm glad you found one of the many good ones.

    I've played excellent Fenders from all decades. I especially love P-basses.... they have amazing dynamics and tone.

    70's Fenders do get a bad rap!!
    I have two 70's jazz basses that are incredible basses and a 83 Precision which is the cream of my crop.
    Congrats on the 76!!! I'm sure she's a beaty!
    Post a pic when ya can.
