    i was just wondering what and early 60's jazz bass went for?
    i found one and i think it is a 63' but i am not sure. this girl i know has it and i might get it for $300. she got it when her grand father died and told me she knows what it's worth but will give it to me for $300. she says it's worth $1200. is that true? i bet alot of you are like you bastard, but i seem good at finding deals. i got a trace elliot full stack for $400 ounce.

    I recently bought a refinished 1964 jazzbass for $2400.

    An 100% original '63 jazzbass should be worth about $3500 - $5000

    It depends if it has original case, ashtray, pickup cover and such things.

    ok so i put ounce instead of once. i paid $400 for the whole thing once. :)

    but the bass is intack original everything, the only problem is a scratch mark from a belt on the back to the clear coat. i am goinr to see it and take pictures maybe in a week.

    You bastard! (Someone had to say it right?)
     
  8. I picked up my refinished 65 for around $1100. I've seen a stripped (body) 62 for $1800.

    If you do get it, please be careful with it. It's not just an instrument, it's a piece of history.

    hey - If it checks out, I'll give you $400 for it (sight unseen) +shipping. That's an easy hundred buck for you. You can't loose.

    She "knows what it's worth" but will sell it to you for $300?!
    ...somebody has a crush on you!
