Not necessarily...I've seen a couple a cheap JP-90s in the Bay Area. They're not as desirable (pricewise) as normal jazz basses.
Doesn't look all that odd. Not a well known model, and times are tough for some. Contact him and see what it is all about.
Who knows how much the seller knows about instruments. A friend's parents were about to sell a '56 Gretsch champagne Sparkle Jet for $500 before they asked me about it.
I'd do some research on the model and check it out.
Go play it. If it feels and sounds good, it's worth $300.
They usually sell on eBay for $300-$400 tops unless the buyer doesn't realize what it is. It is MIA, but the JP-90 was the Highway 1 (pricewise) of their time.
I believe they were made to compete with Ibanez, Aria Pro and the other fairly inexpensive basses of that time.
Yea def not a scam, thats about what that bass is worth. Just cuz its not worth much doesnt mean its not a cool bass. You see all these destroyed les pauls that people put whammy bars on in the 80s cuz les pauls werent very cool then, now theyre kicking themselves. A bass, or any musical instruments, collectablity has alot to do with its popularity at the time. A few years ago you couldnt give away anything post cbs fender, now they go for a grand plus.
not a scam. I luthier friend of mine just picked one up for his dad not that long ago. it's a fun little bass.
The JP-90s don't have a very good reputation compared to other Fenders. So it's most likely legit.
yeah, i've seen MUCH cheaper JP-90's on the LA craigslist... around $200 with a case!
OK, folks, thanks!
FWIW I got my JP-90 (since then I've sold it) for $125 on the Wash. DC Craigslist . It WAS in bad condition, but $300 seems about what they should be asking. It's a KILLLLLLER bass for the money, by far one of the fastest Fender necks I've ever played. I added a BAII and it improved greatly due to the fact that it's a very lightweight body.
