  5. I wouldn't sell my bass if I had put that much wear on it.

    (And I wouldn't spend 14k on one either :bag:)

    Sorry, the site apparently doesn't allow a direct link to the page.

    From the linked page, scroll down to the Fender Oct. 1960 Jazz Stack Knob Bass.

    As much as I love the look of a worn old bass, one that is that beat-up, doesn't do it for me. Looks stripped, not worn. And what's with the fingerboard being so black? Looks like more than dirt.

    Now that 65 P. Yum.

    I wonder how would the bass wear like this under normal playing condition....even it's a 60s bass...

    This bass looks like it may have been exposed to heat at some point. That colour looks similar to other basses I've seen that have been in house fires.
  10. Well its 50 years old, nitro was pretty fragile, 4 hour sweaty gigs, hot vans without it being wiped down, dragged around without a case sometimes, its very possible.

    Can you call a bass original finish, if over 50% of the finish wears of natural insteadd of being stripped off?

    still 15k is alot of that thing
