    Wow, I'm no fan of relics but this is the real deal. Wow!

    But, um, ahem, I'd suggest you at least glance at the price to put your world in perspective...

    That is mojo-licious!

    I have a bass that is only seven years newer and has played a lot of gigs and it isn't a tenth as "lived in". I can't imagine the life that bass had to live to look like that.

    I love it except the decal by the arm contour

    I think the presence of the decal drops the value of the bass significantly. It's probably very hard to remove without further damaging the finish. Kind of an idiotic thing for someone to have done.

    If she was a great player, I'd snatch it up even if it were a tad high :D. I haven't let things such as finances stop me before. Although it hurts like hell to even mention it......

    I still can't wrap my head around how much old Fenders are going for these days.

    Wow. Really? I think that's a VERY BIG part of it's actual character! I mean, who wouldn' like a Betty Boop-crossed-with-Marilyn Monroe-type sticker!? It'd definitely stay on if I were the owner. Hell, I'd probably put some type of protection over it, original factory finish be damned.

    Agreed. But, there are some out there that'll change your perception of that price tag. Not all, but some.

    (purely speculating here)...Yeah man, I mean the guy who owned it prior may have put that decal on 30+ years ago, gigging it every day with it because he loved it there...never once thinkin about resale value on the insane vintage bass market before you know, died or something...what an idiot.

    "The decal of the pinup girl is obviously not original but it has been on there a long time."

    Yeah, moron didn't realize that decades later he was going to sell it. What a moran!

    C'mon!! Where's your sense of adventure? These type of basses are akin to having an amazing one night stand with freaky chick.

    hover and Webtroll, you could be right but on the other hand it might have indeed been done mindlessly. We don't really know.

    What does Jesus have to do with an old bass on e-Bay?

    Just to offer a dissenting opinion: I am having a hard time believing that anybody would find that Jazz the least bit tempting. In my ever-so-humble-and-likely-unpopular opinion, it's a badly neglected and misused example of a pedestrian and utilitarian instrument.

    Even though this post shall carry a hearty and friendly :D, let the flaming begin. :)

    The real question for the OP is, will this be a requited or unrequited love?
