Goodwill Score

MIM Precision Bass. Looks almost new, a few minor body surface blemishes but everything else is shiny & new. Missing one saddle allen screw. $200. If it was half price saturday it would of been $100 but I doubt it would of lasted long enough for me to get there. & I gotta say it took all my strenght to pass on the Hanna Montana acoustic......Sorry no pics.....

They don't put that stuff out, at our Goodwill stores. I think they save it for their eBay auctions. At one of our stores, you go out into a portioned of section of the warehouse to see the furniture. Looking over the wall, they have about 20 pallets of shrink wrapped computer screens/towers. Never sees the floor.

Bargains are where you find them. Something like that coming out of a Goodwill store happens once in a blue moon so nice score. That was a hell of a deal.

Yeah, I've never seen that sort of stuff in my local Goodwill shop, either. Don't know if I blame them, if their goal is to get maximum value from their donations, farming it out to a market with better returns is a good plan.

Nice score

Sorry about the Hanna Montana, hate it when the good ones get away.
Good luck with your planetary exploration projects.

The key to great scores at Goodwill is stopping in alot. I hadn't been to this particular store in awhile & bam a basically brand new Precision Bass. The rosewood fretboard is still shinny. Happy Hunting...
