How to value a 1980s Fender Jazz bass?
I have a good friend who has a Fender Jazz bass with hard shell case from the mid 1980s that belonged to her brother who passed away recently. She wants to sell this Jazz bass. I told her I would try to determine a fair value for the bass and help her sell it. Maybe I'll buy it -- I will know more about the bass once I've looked at it in person in the next week.
My question is: What are some ways to determine the approximate value of a Fender Jazz bass from the 1980s? Recent sales of similar basses would be one way. Any ideas or opinions? Any particular websites? Or price guides that might be somewhat accurate?
Thanks in advance.
