    So I stopped in a Pawn Shop on the way home from the office and see this hanging up...I've done well over the years in this shop but it's very infrequent that I find anything other than Pawn junk...


    '77 Aria Pro Precise Bass. Cool MIJ P-bass copy. PLays and sounds great. Needs one tuner replaced.

    $100 bucks out the door!!!!

    That, my friend, is a great score.

    Do those have a truss rod? Looks real sweet.

    Never seen one of those before... Looks like a pretty faithful copy. For $100, I'd have been all over that too. Even if just to flip. It's gotta be worth more than that...

    Awesome score. Most of my killer pawnshop scores in the last 4 yrs. have all been basses. It feels great, doesn't it?

    I love the lawsuit copies. And this one seems to be pretty well made. From what I've seen, it's probably worth in the $400-500 range.

    Yeah, I remember some of your Bass scores, Texsunburst...I actually thought of you after scoring this bass. I don't think I'll come close to matching your deals.
