For 1500$ 1975 American Jazz bass. 3 bolt neck joint, walnut finish, maple fretboard with block inlays, skunk stripe. Its a part bass, but all the parts are original, except the pickups which are fender 75'RI pickups and the pick guard which is also 75 RI. Super nice tone Resonates really well Nice neck Heavy Neck pocket isn't very tight Does not come with hardshell case VS For 1425$ (AFTER TAX) a 2011 fender jazz bass with a hardshell case What would you think is the better purchase? The old one has mojo and has a really nice tone but is heavy and doesn't come with a case, the new one is a bit cheaper and comes with a case but i am thinking i can always sell the vintage one if i want to switch. I need a bass that i WILL be satisfied for a long time with, i tend to keep my basses and i plan on this one to me my main player for now on.
