    Simple answer.....maybe. :D

    What kind of condition is it in? Any modifications to it? How many strings? Does it come with a case? The answers to those questions will make a difference. If it is beat up with heavy mods to it, $575 is a rip off. If it is mint, that price is fair.

    standard american jazz bass, not deluxe or anything. comes with OHSC and no mods fair condition.
     
  4. $500ish sounds fair- I payed $1000 USD for mine earlier this year- though it's a 2005 American Model, and Sunburst (Extra Cost in Australia not sure bout in the USA).

    If its in excellent-to-mint shape then that is about right.
