    can you please tell me how much it is worth so i can go give the music shop owner a fist full?

    Thanx :)
     
  4. If some music shop owner charged you 500 quid for an affinity P bass, have no worries...it is a clear case of misrepresentation...you could ddrag him through the courts and string him up to dry. Go and politely point out that he owes you 350 quid and you want it back right now...

    Basses are a lot more expensive in the UK than in the US. As Andy said, £150-£175 would seem reasonable.
     
  8. I got my pricing off a UK shop's website...finish seems to make a difference.
     
  9. About $450 Canadian gets you a MIM Jazz here in Vancouver. $390 gets you a Squier Affinity w/ practice amp beginner set.

    after all, i wouldnt consider myself an expert on basses, being the beginner that i am, so would you say it is a good bass?

    It's a decent beginner bass. If you wound up getting it for £125, I think that you got a pretty good deal.

    Welcome to Talkbass, and start practicing.;)
     
  13. Yes, you got a good deal. Well done for sorting it out smoothly...

    Dude, I feel relieved for you. the Squier Affinity P-bass is quite good for the money, but not the kind of money they charged you.

    See, We're not completely useless.:D

    Will C.:cool:
     

  16. Makes you feel all warm and tingly, don't it?

    Squier, happy to help...

    I think you got lucky that the dealer did the "right" thing and refunded most of your money.I don't know that you would have even had any legal recourse since there is usually "buyer beware" on most things.Cant say that I'd trust him now though unless he made an honest mistake[not bloody likely] on the price.
