    And it even has "rectangular pickups", now who could say "No" to that? :D

    What's up with the four screws near the bridge? Are they supposed to hold the bridge ashtray?
  4. They call it 'Relic' now, even if its not intentional

    isnt the real word for that 'beat to ****'?
  5. Early Jazz Basses had string mutes in that spot.

    As usual, GC is letting stoned people post their auctions.

    If you read carefully, it's got a headstock/neck repair, and has been routed for a battery in the back (with coverplate, so screw holes too). Who knows what else is wrong or non original with it!

    Yes it's worth a few bucks, but not 10K.

    I've seen ol' strats and teles that look like that, and people chalk it up to 'mojo'. Think Roy Buchanan.
  8. A little too much mojo for 10k!

    Ah, I see, thanks tightbidness. I've seen those holes before but I guess I was confused because it's the first time that I've seen them with screws in them.

    The price of early jazz basses, are out of site.
    A friend who sell vintage basses, sell early 60's jazz basses to Japan for between $12,000. to $18 000. depending on condition.
    $10.000 is common in US now.
    Go buy a Laklnd USA or Sadowski.

    Only worth what someone will pay for it.

    I'd buy a new one for even money (for my own use that is).

    They're still working on counting too.

    Worst part is they probably got it for $50 after convincing the unknowing owner it was a piece of crap and they'd only get $25 at any other garage sale.

    Back in the late '60's someone sold me an old P bass (looked old even then) for $75, was in bad shape, had been painted green, dings and scrapes, neck wasn't straight (I didn't know about trus rods then!). It sounded great, but because of the look of it, and the unplayable neck, I sold it after about a month for the same price. Should have kept it, huh?

    It's like that '58 Alfa Romeo I bought for $700 at about the same time. There's one of those on ebay now for $35,000.
  17. I've got a 1980 MXR Micro Amp with 4 extra holes drilled in it and about half it's paint missing, I'll sell it for $3000, lol, gc...
