On Saturday I was walking past "Cash Converters" (read "pawn shop"). In the window was a Fender Jazz Bass priced at £110 (about 160 dollars). I went in and bought it Immediately! It's a Japanese model, the serial number dates it to 1990. Sunburst finish, Tortoiseshell pickguard and nicely "aged" looking hardware - plays like a dream. Great neck, no major dings anywhere. Good price or what?
