did i buy a bargain???

bought a second hand SX custom handmade vintage series bass guitar for 50 euro. the dude tells me he paid 200 euro for it in the shop but the impression i have is that this is a discontinued series and they are worth a bit more now. am i right or wrong to think that???

Fifty for a bass that works is okay I guess. You should note there's nothing custom, vintage or hand made about SX basses.

I agree. Still, you got the best series from SX. 50 Euro is a very good price indeed. It's not the best bass, but definetly a great quality/price ratio. And you got it even cheaper. Congrats! enjoy!
