    Ebay is usually a good place to get a decent estimate for used bass value.

    $250, $300 maybe.
     
  4. Depends a lot on the quality of the defret and the quality of the flame. Is the flame real or photo? Do you have any pictures? I would assume 300-600 depending on quality. Who built the body?

    Well...it's a parts bass from the look of things. Resale on such basses aren't usually terribly high, you're more likely to get more for the parts than the whole.
     
  7. You may be able to get more if you were to take it a part, but really an essentially MIM Jazz parts bass is no more than $300, but more likely closer to $200 even with the upgraded parts.

    I've been watching a lot of parts basses on eBay lately, and the market seems pretty low for them. The PARTS however, seem to be going UP, so you might be best off selling it in pieces.
