hey, i was checking out a local music store in halifax the other day when i saw this unbelievable looking bass. turned out to be an 83 fender jazz bass, american made. the pickups were replaced with emg's and the stock pickguard had been removed but it was in beautiful condition and i was told that the original stuff could be had. the music store was selling the bass for an owner and was asking somewhere near 900 (canadian funds, obviously) think that's a pretty good deal? or not so much? thanks, God Bless.
