    You're totally right Arnie. Wish I were a rich man or something. :bawl:

  3. 1987 is "vintage" now?

    Well it is 25 years old. Maybe that's how "vintage" is determined. I guess that makes vintage.... or worse.... I could be a relic? Yikes

    That is really hot. 25 years old would make it definitely classic, possibly vintage, but far too young for antique. Could we be looking at a vintage, vintage reissue?
     
  6. Well the common break-off for "vintage" is 1980, but it has been that as long as I have been playing. I suppose it is about time to move it up.

    Vintage or not, I think it is a very attractive Jazz bass. I could see myself playing that!

    Too bad I am cash poor at this time or I would pop on that. One cannot have too many bass guitars.....

    Only thing that could make that bass any better is a matching headstock!

    NO! A matching head stoke would ablsolutly ruin it!

    ... but that's a matter of taste.

    Nice bass.

    I had a '90s MIA Fender 5er in that colour.... got more compliments on that bass that any of the other dozens I have owned! People love that colour and it really stands out on stage.
     
  14. Absobloodylutely.

    Arnie, I don't know your financial situation, nor would I presume to tell you what to do. But trust me on this: If you're GAS'ing for a bass in the surf green/seafoam green family, nothing will cure you except purchasing a bass in the surf green/seafoam green family. ;)

    Looks great and t6he price is right. Pull the trigger for sure
     
  17. I thought that if it was 30 years old or more, it is considered "vintage".
    Either way, I have a sunburst 62' re-issue, fretless, from 1986 and it plays and sounds incredible.
    It's my "Jaco" bass and it captures that tone just about perfectly.

    That sea-foam green bass looks great. I bet it plays great too.
     
  18. That's nice. My favorite color combo.

    If I needed another 4 string Fender, which I never play cause I'm hooked on 5/6 stringers, I'd be on that in a NY minute . . . gorgeous, and the price is right . . .
