    Yeah, I'd say a lefty Antigua is pretty rare, but five large?!

    He'd better hope Macca pops for it.

    That a 1978 percision.
    No way is it worth $5000.00
    Maybe $1500.00-$1800.00.
    And color is no more rare, tha say L.P.B. or C.A.R.

    You don't find anything unsettling about a bass with almost 30 year old strings on it?

    Not if they stay in tune. I'll bet they sound and play freaking awesome.

    What's the big deal? It's backwards.

    My guitarist has a telecaster in that color. I didn't like it until I saw him play it. It just looks different when it's sitting by itself.

    My uncle has a 1963 precision bass that he bought during his tour of duty with the Army. It still has the original strings on it. This is the bass that I learned to "walk" on...

    The GC on 14th st. has that bass. It might be righty, though. But MY GOD is it beautiful, and I really dislike Fender P Basses, too. Jeese, that color is just ridiculous.. Im pretty sure the onethere is selling for ~1500 give or take 200. 5k is an awful lot, but I guess if you dont live near someone who's selling one of these, it might be hard to track down.

    in my opinion antigua is a pretty sweet finish. you just don't see it much.
  18. if those strings are flats you can leave them on for a really really really long time... alot of people even think they sound better with age.
