price for a used Fender P

  1. Is 350.00 CDN a decent price for a used MIM Fender P? Black with white pg. I haven't played it yet, but it looks to be in decent shape.

    That might be a tad too much, cause you can get it for just about that much new.

    mmmmmm not in Canada you can't. A new P bass here goes for around 500 or more. I would say 350 is still a little steep unless it's mint and plays like a dream. Try and drop him to 320 and your getting a deal.
  4. Offer him a cool $300 and i think you could have yourself a new bass.
  5. Won't take a penny less than 350 plus tax. Didn't have an amp to plug it in to either, though he claimed it was working fine. Not worth it I don't think.

    Oh well. Keep looking at the pawn shops I guess.

    It's in one on Church in T.O. if anyone else is interested.
  6. I wouldn't take it either if there was no way to try it. Pawn shop guys are notorious for being shady.

    Tell him to stick it... Check your local classified ads. I know Ottawa has the Ottawa musician website and I am sure Toronto must have something similar. Stay away from pawn shops.
