A mere pittance
Uh...I may be uneducated, but is that horribly overblown, or a deal? I'm not up on vintage Fender prices...
It must be nice to be able to kick down $10k for a
$10.000 for a piece of old and moldy wood, Vanity Fair cover story
Thought I'd give it a shot. You only live once and I love jazz basses.
No bass, especially an old Fender, is worth $10,000 IMO.
Sure, it's worth > $10,000, because it is a Fender. In the years to come it will be worth even more.
That's what I was thinkin'
The money I've put into basses has beat the heck out of the money I've dumped into my 401(k).
I can get a 200% profit by selling my 78 Jazz... and that's just a 1978 Jazz.
I'm keeping it of course
10 years ago, people would have said the same thing about the relative high end price for a '62 Jazz. They've gone up since then.
Investments you can play. Try that with a T bill
Yea. I was going to sell my '67 Jazz if I was able to get this one. I'm probably 200% up on that one like you are.
And some people think we're crazy
Well okay, maybe I am...
BTW I bought my 68 Jazz way back when for $125.
In all do respect why is rareity so valuable as SMASH pointed out these basses were considered crap and now because they are rare they are valuable, so if Rogue basses were made in the 60's they would be valuable now?? Why be a bass player and buy a bass that you don't think sound good??????
The most I've ever seen a vintage jazz go for is $3000 tops! I'm sittin of a '73 jazz now, of course I'd never sell it, but whew! thats a lot of money...
P.S. When is the pre CBS time? When did CBS buy fender? 70s?
WITH all do respect not IN all do respect, I'm Icelandic I'm not very bright etc........
They weren't bad basses at all. My old jazz sounds awesome and still has a great punch to it. Jazz basses weren't as mass produced initially like the precision and most players prefer the slim neck and tone over the last decade. Just look at values of a '65 jazz compared to a '65 precision. Also, what other company made a good electric bass back then? For the most part, no company did. I'd compare them to old Topps baseball cards. They were the only game in town. No competition
January 5th, 1965 is when CBS took over.
Good point but is it really $10.000 worth???
Evidently, someone just paid over $10,000 for that one, and several other people were bidding close to that.
