This one is indeed a "rare find".
1963 Fender Jazz Bass Guitar! RARE FIND (See below) | eBay
That bass makes baby Jesus cry.
But at that price, assuming the original hardware is there, would it be worth having a pro fill the extra holes and do a solid color refinish? Lake Placid Blue!
Love the way he points out, "There is some slight damage/wear to the pick guard"!!!!
That is absolutely brutal.
Don't forget... "all easy fixes..."
The "work" was probably done long ago before it became vintage and desirable. You gotta remember, back in the 60's and 70's, those things were just some old bass- a working tool that was not worth that much. Like Alack said, fill the holes and paint an opaque color.
Looks like a blow torch finish. Mods like that happened way back when they were just used basses. Some, such as Berry Oakley's "Tractor" are famous for it. I did them myself back in the day.
"....This is a gem to ad to any bass players collection!!!!!!!"
"There have been some modifications done"
Oh ho ho, one would never have known.
Reminds me of the car for sale ads showing a wrecked car with the description "needs minor repair."
When I die, my kids will put my 91 MIM up for sale and everyone will be all “WHO BUTCHERED THAT CLASSIC???”
If you look at the pictures of the book Chord Chemistry by Ted Greene, he has half a dozen now-collectible guitars with all kinds of extra switches and knobs stuck in them, damaging present-day resale value.
Just how they did things back then I guess. I think it was Dan Erlewine I watched online repair a similarly mutilated vintage Fender. Yeah, a competent tech could make that bass right. Just so hideous.
would I buy it, hell no.
Do i like it...kinda...
I'd pay $100
...step away from the power tools
Don't you start!
It looks sticky
To me, no. You could have a luthier make you a '63 jazz style to your exact specs and it would be a better instrument.
