    An aquaintence has a Fender Jazz bass SN N0017 made in USA, has a long crack in body through the tone and vol controls. What would you pay? is it worth a bargain price; neck and frets in good shape, has preamp in it.
     
  2. The N indicates a 90's bass and with a crack through the control cavity it's a parts bass and worth very little.
    I'd pay what a used neck goes for and what a box of loose electronics and hardware would sell for.....ie: not very much.

    I'm pretty sure US Fender necks usually go for 300-500 bucks, I wouldn't pay a whole lot more than that. The body's not worth fixing in my opinion, when good replacements can be had for super reasonable prices regularly.
     
  4. Isn't the volume and tone knob mounted on a plate on a jazz? Trying to imagine where the crack actually is.
