Price of an MIM Fender jazz bass in 2001...was it different from now?

Discussion in 'Bassists [BG]' started by MovingPitchers, Apr 7, 2014.

  1. I have a fender jazz bass from 2001. I got it used from someone else who bought in 2001. I was wondering because of the recent price increase on fender products, were fender jazz basses cheaper than it was now? Or did it remain 599.99 until recently?

    I wanna know the real value of my bass in 2014 dollars due to inflation and currency changes.

    I believe the MIM standard jazz basses were street-priced around $399.99 or $449.99 back then, strats and teles were $349.99 with fat strats coming in around $399.99. I may be slightly off with the basses, but I'm almost certain back then the Jazz was $50 more than the P-bass, and I know for a fact that the guitar prices are right as I bought one of each back in 2001 or 2002.
