Hey folks: I am drummer who is studying bass for last 3 years. I have a question: my teacher said I "paid too much" for a 1995 Mexican P-Bass. I paid $550.00, but it was extensively modded out with Hipshot tuners (drop lever on E), Baddass bridge, and a replacement Dimarzio pickup. The bass was in immaculate condition, and plays like a dream. I do not profess to be any expert, but I have played professionally and semi-pro after that for 30 years, and have heard lots of basses, and this one was a beauty. What is the opinion of bassists out there?
