    That's simply stunning.

    I wouldn't go a penny over 7K.

    Hot, but ridiculous price.

    JPJ played one of those right?
  5. At that price Jaco better have owned and sold the instrument for coke money, or something like that.

    Great shape, but I too think it's a little high, was that pre or post CBS? I think if I had the moeny I'd do that price for a 61-62 stack knob, but for a 65 I think you could probably get a pretty good one for well under 10K.

    I'm going to bid right at the end so I can snatch it up for the discount price of $12,999. :D

    Ton of cash but it is a custom color and in fantastic shape. Technically not pre cbs

  11. I have a 62' that I get offers of $10-12K for fairly regularly...mine is in a litlle better shape than this one but is a Sunburst which was not a custom color obviously. 4 or 5 years ago a very high profile producer offered me $20K for it after I told him it was not for sale at ANY price. He even went so far as to write the check....I still have my bass and he still wants it!!! I also have a Sunburst '67 that is not in quite as good a shape that I have been offered $10k for on a number of occasions (including from the same producer) I doubt I will ever sell either of these basses (until my little girl goes to college and then I may have to!!!!) at any price as you just can not get them like this anymore....I have seen basses go for way more than they were worth and I imagine that will continue but, to me, this $13.5K is not THAT far off the mark if this is a player......she turns 40 this year, you know? Every woman I know gets pretty expensive about the time they hit 40....LOL!

    that ebayer has obviously been told to sell that bass by his wife, and so for the record, he can say he is trying ;)

    It's all about the market, not personal finance.
  14. GAS ME GOOD.

    That is one sexy bass. i'd give my left nut to own something as classy and beautful as that

    i need one but $13.000 bit steep i think. :crying:

    i wonder how much my kidneys would sell for on ebay :confused: and my soul. god knows i dont need that no more.

    kidney money + soul money = still not enouugh. why god why :bawl:

    The mutes won't be in the best of shape then...

  16. i couldn't see paying anymore than $2000 for ANY fender. this is just ridiculous. but obviously there's a market for overpriced guitars. you know the old saying, a fool and his money..etc.
  17. that thing is in pretty good condition for it's age

    I just don't understand the allure... :confused:

    Not slamming anyone who's going gaa-gaa over it mind you.. Many here don't like or understand the basses I play. To each his/her own.. I just don't understand. Much in the same way I don't understand the allure of NASCAR..

    It's old, it's rare... it's collectible. Some people tend to look at this from the aspect of it being a "player". That's not what this bass is about.

    Some people pay more than that for a diamond ring, far more often. I thought this might be of interest:

    It's valuable because it's valuable. A little more than half what a Mickey Mantle rookie baseball card is "worth".
