    Steinberger Style!!!, modified many years ago, this ’69 Jazz was tastefully hacked up, good original ’69 parts including neck, tuners, pickups, bridge, and neckplate; neck has a few small extraneous holes including one that goes all the way through, body has a 4-conductor XLR style output jack on the side and weights on the back for balance, buy for parts or for an unusual working bass, $950….


    This makes me want to cry... I hate some people.

    I think the price is a little high, but you would get an original neck, tuners, pickups, and bridge.

    Sad state of affairs.
     
  8. I would pay $950 for the parts if I needed replacements on a 69' Jazz bass. They are original stock parts, so they are worth the asking price.

    It's just sad that someone would butcher a bass like that.

    Well, just to put in a different point of view... it is possible that someone without the funds to get a custom bass did this in the early 70's after getting the bass to have a totally new and different design? How was he/she to know a 69 jazz bass would be worth what it is today?

    Just to toss that out there. :bag:

    EDIT: I think it looks kinda neat anyways.... still wouldnt pay $950 for it though
     
  10. :meh: I wonder if Steinberger did this during his planning stage?

    I think NOT.:eek:
