    There are at least 3-4 classic vibe jazzes on ebay for over $700! That seems crazy. I know they don't make them in white anymore but that still seems really high.

    I see several of the high-priced CVs from Japan, one from Bulgaria.
    Regardless, GC sold this one for $175.

    Not worth it. They're nice instruments, and they seem to hold their resale value well being on the budget side already, but double the price is ridiculous. I can buy a nicer Mexican Classic Series Jazz bass brand new for that price.

    Ebay sellers can ask what they want. Doesn't mean they sell for that price.

    TB censors because you can't fish for sales when you're not a supporting member.
     
  12. The acronym *** is the latest casualty in the Orwellian war against "offensive speech".

    On the horizon......the word "lame".

    There's a swarm of Japanese sellers on eBay who ask crazy prices for readily available used basses.

    Not sure if they are having much luck; I guess they must be because they have been at it for a year or so now.

    $1200+ for used MIK basses like Epiphone Casadys? Wild.

    With these --and others --the country of origin is usually JPN, and it isn't limited to Fender/Squier.

    :rolleyes: Wasn't fishing for a sale - not even decided for sure, plus being in the UK, Talkbass is one of the worst places for me to try and sell it anyway!

    So it came up in a conversation that he didn't start. Merry Christmas to you, too. Are we allowed to say "Merry Christmas" here? I'll take my money back if not. Holiday/winter greetings to you if you are offended by Christmas.
