Still searching for my first bass. The board has been so much help in getting an ex-guitar player started on bass. I went back to my local store seeing what I liked and picked up an American P. The thing sings acoustically. It was like a tuning fork no matter where you played on the neck. He said (and I don't doubt him) that they were sitting on the guitar for a while and wanted to sell it. He offered it to me for $630 out the door with case etc. Is this as good of a deal as he says? I ask because I'm a older student who's not working but could come up with the money if this is as good as it sounds. Thanks you guys for proving such great reading on TB.
