    Hey everybody,

    I´ve got the opportunity, to get my hands on a Late 60´s Fender Jazz Bass. The Serial Number is 501225.

    Does anyone know which exact year it is ? Price would be $800. Do you think this is a good deal ? How much would the resale value be ?

    Thanks !

    David

    If it is indeed a late 60's Jazz and in good condition,
    who cares about the re-sale value, for $800 buy and keep it.
     
  3. If the bass is original and in good condition, that is an exceptionally good deal. Any pics? Description?

    Fender serial numbers are not a precise dating feature (you need to look at the neck date to be more certain). But that number is an early 70s number.

    Resale value would be at least twice what you are paying.
     
  4. This particular bass could be a 1973 model at the earliest and that's stretching things a bit. Check out
