So currently I have an L-2000 Tribute (that I absolutely love), but I am looking to upgrade to the full fledged USA L-2000. I found one in the local classifieds, but it seems to have a few problems. The guy says he bought it new in 1998. Although it is only a little over 10 years old, all the chrome (bridge and tuning keys) is tarnished. It all is very cloudy and has little green spots. The pickups are rusted as well. My question is this; The guy wants only $700 for it... is it worth it? Are those cosmetic flaws a big deal? It just worries me a little. I have a P-bass that I've had for about 11 years and there is not an ounce of tarnish/rust on it.
