    Where in NJ are you? Guitar Center in Union has a fair variety of vintage Fender basses in good shape. Prices are a tad higher than what I would pay personally.

    New Jersey Guitar and Bass in Edison is also a good source for vintage Fenders. http://members.aol.com/njgtrbass/frames.htm

    Depending on what you're looking for, there are other options. I was looking for a pre CBS Jazz and they want a lot of $$$ for those things. I found a used Lakland USA Joe Osborne for less money and I quit looking for old Fenders. Big String here on TB had one for sale for a very reasonable amount. You might PM him and see if it's still for sale. Very good basses.
