I have spent the last couple of weeks looking at the top name Bass manufacturers products planning on buying one of them. Although I don't play that well (my primary instrument is the piano) I like nice instruments. Today I decided to scrap the idea. the thought of it dropping a grand in value as soon as I opened the package didn't sit too well with me. To that end I have decided to look for a early 70's Fender 4 bolt Jazz, at least I won't lose money on it and I was raised on early R&R and like the sound. What kind of money should I be looking at parting with for a nice example of the genre???????
