    Hey,

    I just noticed that those things have a 22 fret neck. Hmm, how are the necks on those things, closer to a p or a j?

    What's the going rate on these? There was one at a local pawn shop, not sure if it's still there, for $150 IIRC, pretty beat-up though (needs some electronic work, crack in the finish only [?] at the heel, etc), that the guy said he would sell for $100, and I said I'd think about it.
     
  6. BUY IT! Not a whole lot of those out there, and they're worth a whole lot more than 100 clams, even if it does need a bit of work. Nice basses, too :cool:

    You could probably flip it for a nice profit pretty easily.

    That "cowpoke" phrase was coined by my old friend Bovinehost over on the old Dudepit. He had one and thought the pickguard made the bass look like something a country western bassist might use.

    Now ya know.;)

    I too am clueless.. Looks like a Stu Hamm/Tele that brought over the Kubuki controls from the 90's
     
  16. so what is the bass actually, like who makes it, and what does it usually go for?

  19. It's made by Fender. They don't make them anymore. It's was a mid 90's production of the current Precision Active Special bass. I bought mine for $275 used. I don't know how much they usually go for.
     
  20. Man I had one of these...............You're right about the Kubicki controls. This is a Mexi Fender P Special from the mid nineties. 22 fret neck, slightly smaller body than a standard P. I really like the look of these basses and had no complaints about the playability.
