    Awesome. A '75 refin with non-original pups. :rolleyes: He'd be lucky to get $3K.

    Someone put some stupid in the watering hole.

    I wouldn't even pay the 3 g's for a refin with not one iota of original electronics. Well, maybe the jack, but that's be just stupid at this point.

    And chips in the headstock? Um, no. dents maybe, but not chips....

    Maybe he meant to type $5500, which is still way too much.

    Haha, yeah I saw that already and was gonna post it up here - figured that would get taken care of...

    I guess someone might pay that for a 70's J bass -- if it was owned by Marcus Miller or Geddy Lee:p

    Damn, I think he'd have a very very hard time getting a tenth of that.

    His title states: "1975 FENDER JAZZ BASS/ULTRA MINT - $55000 (TriBeCa):

    1975 GEM, ..... HAS 3 TINY CHIPS IN THE WOOD ON THE HEADSTOCK .....

    He must be a used car salesmen. To me, ultra mint means just like new (i.e. no chips in the wood).

    I bid $1800, shipping included (homeless bankers need the cash, he'll cave).

    If you buy and hold that bass for 100 years then it might actually be worth the $55,000 ... naa ... even then it won't be worth that much ...

    It's worth 1K in this economy. 2.5K if it was all original...
