Whats the best deal you've gotten, not including a family member buying you your first fender etc. I'd like to hear stories like "I found an unplayed never opened fender '57 p bass and the guy paid me to take it". I haven't gotten any AMAZING deals on any electric basses. Found a 2008 American Standard P for $700 that my friend bought. Both my uprights were pretty good deals. Got about $2000 off of my fully carved bass. I found my plywood bass last october at guitar center listed as "Acoustic Cello" for $800 after tax. My luthier told me its from 1960 and worth between $1500 and $2000. Lets hear your stories.
