    Why should it BOTHER anyone?

    And to be fair that's concrete not pavement. No tar.

    It'd be worth it to me to get refinished.

    It's sitting on the concrete...not getting dragged on it (although it kinda looks like it has been before). So what? If you dig a 69 Jazz...

    I see that stuff all the time on ebay. They'll say it's in mint condition with no scratches and take pictures of it laying in the driveway.

    my thought is just, why not on a table with a tablecloth or on a nice shag rug?

    Yep, it makes the listing show up when people search for "vintage" or "P bass" - or both. A little optimistic to think that people looking for one of those would bid for this one instead, though... :p

    And BTW, eBay doesn't allow "name dropping" auction titles for the above reason, so either their robots didn't catch that one or they've just decided to not include their power sellers in the rules for the rest of us... :meh:

    And also - if that '69 Jazz is in "good shape", then my '69 Jazz is MINT !

    And no, my bass is not mint - hope that came through...! :p

    I wonder what the value of mine is if this one is estimated to $4,750... I hope more.

    maybe it was in good shape when he started taking pictures. at least the starting bid is low.
  17. yeah

    plus, it doesn't look like it is in mint condition anyways, so even if it does get a nick on it, so what? look at that top horn haha

    Frankly, if you ask me, he still owns the bass and can do with it what he pleases. If he wants to drag it behind his car, it's his choice. It's a darn shame, but he has every right to do whatever he wants to that instrument.

    If you don't want to buy it because it's sitting on the pavement, that's fine. But as of the photos, he still owned the instrument.

    I think his bass is in good shape. A 40 year old nitro finish peeling of is quite normal. I think it's a lovely bass, but he won't get as much as it was appraised for...
