    Appraisal Transcript:


    GUEST: I got that for a birthday present in about '66 from my wife.

    APPRAISER: It's a 1966 Fender Precision bass. It's got a little bit of wear in it, but that's honest wear from playing. It's never been refinished, it's never been altered. Retail for this bass could be $5,000 to $7,000.

    GUEST: Oh yeah?

    APPRAISER: That's right.

    GUEST: You're making it tough on me. I've been trying to decide if I should keep the bass or keep the wife.

    APPRAISER: I've met your wife, I'd keep the wife.
