    I am now the proud owner of a 1964 Fender Jazzbass, and I've never been happier. Look -> :D

    I've tried some of these old beauties, and I knew when I bought one that it would have great playability, but what impressed me and surprised me was the sound. I do know aged wood sounds better, but it was like a total different bass compared to my '62 reissue. When I plugged it into my Eden WT-800 I was like "WOW! GEEEZ!" It sounds so FAT, powerful and defined.

    I bought the bass at eBay for $2400, refinished, with new pots and without the ashtray. I think it was a very good deal, 'cause here in Norway it's worth the double.

    I took a big chance when I bought it untried and unheard, but I really don't regret it now. :)

    WOOOOHOOOOO! :bassist:

    Did you get that on EBay UK just before Christmas? I think that's the same bass I was checking out myself - it looks great. I spoke to the seller a few times - rather interesting chap, if it's the same person I'm thinking of. ;):D A little "simple minded", if you know what I mean!! :D
  8. Sound clips!

    If that was a P, i'd come over and steal that from you. :D

    Or, i'd come over there and steal it and than trade it for a P of the same vintage. :p ;)

    heh, thanks guys :)

    Yes Osama_Spears, $2400!! And I had to pay some shipping to Norway.. (ca $250).

    It was a big chance to take, transferring that much money into a guys bank account, hoping to get a bass, but I did, and I'm so happy.

    Does anyone of you got old Jazz basses or have tried some?

    Greetings from Norway,

  14. Yes, I have a 66, a 67 and a 69 Jazz bass and I lovem"

    Wow, let's see some pictures?

  16. hoel, I do not have a digital camera, but I'm working on it.

    Here's one.

  17. Nice bass Smash!

    No I don't have any problems with the bridge cover, I slap and use other styles when playing mine, thats why I went ahead and left that cover on.

    Someone mentioned my hand position in the Rickenbacker photo I posted, I play in front of the pup on my 4000 and I have learned to work around the cover on that horse shoe pup too.

    I often have bass players ask me the same thing when they see me play live, I guess I'm just different.
