I did it again, gas has won out. just scored another jazz bass. It's a 98 MIA deluxe in mint condition. I had been looking at this bass for some time now and had passed on it 3 or 4 basses ago. the original price I saw was $999.00 so I passed, they dropped it down to $850.00 where it stayed for month's. Every time I would go in that store I would pick it up and play then ask the manager what he wanted to do, Two week's ago he told me $750.00 then I hung it back up and walk by him and out the door. last night I asked him again and after waiting for him to take care of his business he told me $650.00 w/case. I told him done deal.
