    It looks like I might be trading my Carvin LB20F for a 1982 Fender Jazz Gold Series Bass!! Does anyone know specifically about this model? I've heard from him that its a really rare bass, which has a rare color, white pickups, gold screws etc.. etc.. This looks REALLY Cool!!!!

    IM HAPPY AS HELL RIGHT NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Let me just put it this way: if that Gold Jazz is in at least very good condition, it's worth 3-4 times what your Carvin is. Excellent examples of those early 80's Gold J's can go up to around $1,500. Your bass sells for about $579 NEW, and around $225 used. Does the guy know what he has? If he's a friend, or at least hasn't done you any wrong, you may want to make sure he at least is aware of this -- you'd sleep better at night.

    That is a sweet trade that I would do in a heartbeat.

    If the other guy is still OK with it I say Go for it!

    Good luck!

    You might do better asking at the Fender forum (FDP); I seem to remember that this bass has come up in dicussions there before, but I can't rememeber what was said at the time. If it's gold and Fender, then Steve (Dude) Barr is bound to know all about it! ;)
