    You realize that this is just a parts bass, right? Just making sure :p Seems like an alright deal to me, not something I'd call a steal, but if you want it, then go for it. But hey, I'm not a big fan of matching headstocks ;)

    It sure ain't natural wear. For a neck to wear like that, he would have had to have played it for long enough that the body would NOT be in that good condition. So it's reliced. Still seems like a pretty good price, I say go for it.

    I may be showing my ignorance, but I should also point out that I THINK that headstock logo is wrong for a 66 Jazz... I don't think they started using that logo until 68, maybe late 67.

    Eh...

    That "awesome neck wear" is just the guy with a piece of sandpaper. If that bass was all original it'd go for $450-$500. Since it has a replacement neck, and who knows what else, its collector value is shot.

    I'd pass unless I was looking for a beater.

    I'm aware, and I wouldn't have paid that!:p IMO there is always a difference as to what someone is actually worth, vs what people will pay for it.

    Someone values a colored headstock more than the bass's actual worth.

    i suppose the neck wear could be better...altho its hard to dislike a brazilian rosewood fretboard... but have you looked at the **** fender pumps out and slaps a custom shop logo on that instantly adds 2 grand to the price... i mean honestly...anyone else look at a custom shop bass and wonder...hmmm is the sum of the parts(because thats all it comes down to) is not worth that just because they throw some buckle rash on there

    I don't personally own any Fender CS basses, but I know multiple bassists who do own CS basses and they are VERY happy with them. I can't even understand what point you're trying to make there; it's all one big sentence. :eyebrow:

    Yes I have, and it was well worth the price to me.
    (but I didn't buy a relic model)
    But Ed Friedland bought a relic Jazz though (you know the guy that writes all those bass reviews for magazines), and he was so blown away at the relic feel the CS applied to it.

    I have (I own a beauty) and the quality is very apparent. I'm happy with the $1.5k I payed for a mint used '64 Jazz NOS one, and most of the CS instruments I've played were amazing.
