    First time for me seeing this bass. If it's legit, wow! Very cool piece, though the price makes no sense. You'd think the seller would price competitively. Didn't Bass Northwest sell a 64 Jazz in Olympic white w/matching headstock for around $15k?

    Don't forget the tats!

    in a way, he doesn't have to. although i think he is asking too much, oly white is common as compared to a sparkle gold. i'd be willing to bet that they made less of the sparkle gold ones than you could count on both hands, maybe even one hand.

    When I get home from work, I'll try to post the one crappy poloroid picture I have of my dad and his 1964 gold sparkle Jazz bass. It did not have a matching headstock. Speaking of which, it was unique in that the headstock logo said just "Fender" not "Jazz Bass" or anything else. He traded it in 1968 for a new Telecaster Bass, that I still have to this day.

    :cool:
    This is true.
    I've seen a P-bass with this type of sparkle. (Red)
    And, a friend has a early 60's Tele, in blue sparkle.
    Fender did do this.

    Not so much. Being smart enough to earn a good salary equates usually to being smart enough not to get suckered.
     
  11. The bass really tickles my fancy, but I wouldn't pay more than 20K for it (assuming I had the cash, which of course, I don't).

    Not to mention spending 20% of your annual income on a bass would be the dumbest thing ever.

    Should someone making 50k/year spend 10k on a bass? No.
