    I am going to go meet someone this weekend to look at a 2-month old Highway 1 jazz bass.
    Serial number Z7148199
    I assume this was made in 2007.
    I will be paying 525 and I think that is a fair price, but a buddy of mine says its too low. I'm not a bass expert, its for my brother to upgrade from his squier.
    Is this a good deal? Does this one have the badass bridge?

    I think thats a pretty good price. I dont know if it has the BA2 bridge but you will know right away when you see it. Its not hard to tell a HWY 1. Matte body, 70's logo, MIM tuners, etc.

    Highway 1= no Badass
    Highway One= Badass

    Price= Fair if in good shape and playable.
    Good Deal?= I say yes.

    Sounds like a fair price to me, and definately a nice bass. Rock it.

    That's a Highway One Jazz and no, you don't need to haggle anymore as that is a good deal as it is! It may also be one of the rare ones with graphite rods reinforcement in the neck.

    Just for reference there was a Blonde Highway One Precision on Craigslist near me for $600 last week, so sounds like the one you are looking at is a good price if it is in nice shape.

    Looking forward to pics if the deal works out. ;)
