    what do you guys think? is it worth it. I think i talked him down to $200 (including shipping). i know these korean are pretty much the same as today's mexican standard. $200 sounds so tempting...its either this or i can buy a New Fender Rack Tuner and Furman Power conditioner.
     
  2. Well, let's see.
    He types in all caps, which many consider rude, can't spell and so makes it obvious he cares little about the ad with which he's trying to sell his bass, tells you wonderful things about the playability and sound of a line of instruments usually seen as lagging behind competitors in their price range, perhaps even suggesting "vintage" seven-year-old Squires are better and is asking an amount you said you talked him down to.
    I think you should go for it, but send cash in an envelope. Don't bother with a money order.

    I thought he just said the colour was "Vintage Cream".

    seems like a very good deal. That's about what you would pay for a p-bass thats 7 years old
    I say go for it

    Here is my take. Squire P basses of this age sell for $100 - $150 on eBay. I would offer him $125 shipped and walk away if he doesn't like it.
