    Has anyone noticed the price of Fender basses lately. I bought an American DELUXE jazz for $900 in 2000. Now, the American STANDARD Jazz is fetching over $1,400!!!
    Even the MIM is asking over $600. Who in their right mind would buy this stuff new, anymore?

    It all started when I went on Craigslist and saw a Fender standard Jazz with an asking price of $500. Like an idiot, I was like, "That guy is asking way too much!" Sure as sh&t, the same bass is going for $659 at any of the big guitar stores.

    It's been discussed here to the point of exhaustion. Do a search. :)
  3. You don't get out much, do you?


    Like Toshiro noted, that is one horse that has been beat to death around here this year.

    Important to note that there have been lots of manufacturers raising prices.

    Gibson did and also look at the price of new EBMM Stingrays.... $1500-1900 on sale seems to be average. The days of buying new SRs for $1000-1100 are long gone.
