    Hi there,

    I've been looking for a price list from the early 70's but I can't find one. Do you know how much a Jazz Bass did cost in 1970-1973?

    Thanks in advance.

    I bought a new 1972 Fender Jazz Bass (in May 1972) and paid $245.00. I don't remember if that was the list price or included a discount.

    I bought a 71 P in 76 for $275
  4. I bought a new P bass in 1970 for 250.00 w case. I was 17 and this was a layaway so you know I didn't get a deal. Maybe what, 20 bucks more for a Jazz?

    I was trying to find out the same things you get a price list please post it.
    I bought a used '70 Jazz in '71. I think I paid $250 in a hard case. But my memories of that era are ... foggy.
