    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.

    By any chance, did you buy that bass from Sam Ash in Bklyn? If so, I bought that bass for the store when I was the guitar dept manager there & i haven't worked thier for a long time!!!! :) I'm suprised it was there for SO long. I like the pick-up's of these basses better than the newer ones with the Noiseless. Congrats!!!

    If you didn't buy it from sam Ash in bklyn, sorry for the rant. LOL ;)

    Nino yes . Larry and I are pretty cool. you know how long this bass was there and I have been telling him I didn't need it. The truth is it play's like a dream now (they must have set it up again) because it did not feel that way before. I just had to wipe it down and that's it. Hey Nino I thought about you when I posted and expected you to reply.
