    Hello, I know aspects of pricing can be subjective, but am considering a trade, acquiring a 73 P Bass. This is all I know about it...

    "Natural ..very good condish... I took the neck off and determined it was a 1976 issue...body and all wiring is 1973...headstock was re logo-ed"

    Let me know if you know a general ball park... He thinks around 2k but with a different neck, I really don't know what that means to the impact of the price. I would have to play it for sure, but a blue book description would help when considering a starting point.

    $2k is way too much for a 76 neck that sounds like it was refinished. Who knows what else has been replaced...

    Do some research on Ebay and check completed listings to get an idea of what things were selling for.
  4. Whoa whoa! He's KEEPING the 76 neck and giving you something else!?
    Not worth that AT ALL, especially if he's refin'd it!
    Save your money & go buy a new Am Std, or a used one.

    Check GC vintage basses online. Way better deals, and returnable.

    For 2k I'd suggest you move on and find another P that hasn't had a mutt-job done to it.

    Funny. 70's Fender basses were really not at all desirable back in the 80's.
