    Too much Mojo !!!

  4. Seems to me to be a legit 65 Jazz and it's priced about right if it is as original as claimed. Perhaps even a little bit on the low side. Look at the prices that things are going for on e-bay right now. The change in the economy is having some effect IMO.

    I don't think that's alot to ask. I've seen basses of that era go for about $7,000-$10,000 (in better condition) If you're looking for a player I'd go for it. When I worked @ Sam Ash I've sold a few Custom Shop Relics (where you buy them new, already beat up) for $2000+.

    FWIW, I know the seller Tom Bukovac pretty well, played with him for several years. He's a totally upstanding guy - not to mention a phenominal guitarist. He's toured with Wynonna Judd, Tanya Tucker, and John Fogerty, as well as many album credits, including Nelson (you know, the platinum-haired brothers).

    I've bought several basses from him since he moved from Cleveland to Nashville, and they've always been top notch, and exactly as represented. I would vouch for his trustworthiness anyday. Heck, take a look at his feedback file on Ebay, its fantastic. He once sold me two pre-Gibson Tobias Classic 5's, one had a rare purple-heart top with walnut back.

    Tom tried to get me to buy this particular jazz bass several weeks ago as well, but the spousal unit won't permit the investment at this time. I wish I could snag it.
