For all I know there are dozens of threads here on this bass, but I can't find them... "J" is too short to use, and "ESP four" brings up every single 4 string ESP ever made. What I get from Google is that these were ash or alder bodied Jazz clones with EMG pickups and rosewood fretboards. What's a good price for one that's got some scratches and wear, nothing through the finish, BUT has a maple fretboard and non-EMG pickups? They look like your standard exposed pole Jazz pickups. Japan made. The only sales history on Ebay has a rosewood/EMG model with a $300 price, did not sell, reserve not met, so that's not much help. I don't need it, but it sounds and plays so good... I don't know what to offer the guy, and he doesn't know much about it.
