    I've never seen one that came llike that. I'd have to say that the second P was added. Not a bad thing in my book as long as it was done cleanly. You just can't go wrong with a double P.

    I just called and got a serial number - E912879. This might be an '89 USA Squier! Does that sound right to anyone?

    There were a few P's in the late 80's and early 90's that had dual P pickups.

    It's $75, just get it.

    I paid $75 for my Squier ProTone and it is my #1 bass at the moment!! It's probably the best $75 I've ever spent actually!!

    You should get it, you definitely can't go wrong with that price!

    Okay - upon further research, I'm pretty sure it's Japanese. (Dangit - should have asked the guy when I was talking to him. Guess I'll find out tomorrow.) Not sure if this makes it more or less desirable though.

    Well to be honest, you're NEVER going to find a USA Fender for $75, unless it's been totally FUBAR'ed or the person selling it has no idea what it's worth.

    Again, it's only $75, get it. And if you don't like it, sell it again for $75.

    Fort Collins is a college town. It's two roommates looking for dope money or getting rid of every last scrap before they move back home. Who knows what their motivation is.

    And yes, unless it's been ruined, I'll be getting it tomorrow afternoon. Go Me! :hyper:

    If it's solid as a rock (like I think it might be), I might keep it as an Eb bass. We'll see. I have a D bass (an old Vega with two P-style DiMarzio pickups and a huge, fat, mahogany body), so why not an Eb bass?

    So I got it. Turns out it's Korean, but sounds great. Truss rod nut is stripped from the outside, tho - can't get 'purchase' when tightening the neck. Gonna have my guy get it out and replace it and re-evaluate at that point. Should be a pretty cool bass!
