Why would you pay so much more for a bass that is very simmilar to the standard Fender Jazz? What makes them worth 3 grand? Lakland, Sadowsky, Mike Lull, ect, what makes them so valuable? Is it material? I know people swear by the sound and feel, but what makes them worth so much? I can't think why even a handmade bass can fetch over 3 thousand dollars? Are people willing to pay that much for "feel". I know that there is the argument that if you can't tell the difference, go for the cheaper, but still, why so much money?
