I'm seriously considering getting a custom, high end jazz style bass. My two preferred builders, Elrick and Sadowsky quoted me over $3000 for each. That is a little more than I expected. Are these basses really worth this much? For the Sadowsky I am interested in the ultra jazz model. No fancy woods or electonics. For the Elrick, I wanted a 4 string NJS with passive pups and a spalted maple top, and bolt on neck. Bass NW said it would be 3K, but I've seen for sale used from $1000-1800. Could this be right? I think it would be just better to wait for a good used on to come down the pipe, no?
