How do you figure that..?
Because they typically sell for less than they are new. I don't know why everyone seems intent on making money from bass guitars. Stocks and bonds seem like a better option for that goal.
I'm just being a wise-a here, but do you work for Fender? LOL!!!!! I believe the price of gear in general is based on what someone thinks the Market will bear.
I'm not sure... I just purchased a nice old French bass in disrepair and to make it playable again will cost me upwards of $10,000 ... Minimum... I suspect it's worth it...
I'll post some stuff after the smoke clears and the check appears... So to speak.
From what I've seen at Sotheby's and other under the cover deals I've been privy to... He is spot on... If it isn't American, regarding Fender or Gibson anyway, it isn't "valuable." For that market anyway... The American stuff is desired most definitely...
Who me? Lol no
No I get that the American stuff is more likely to appreciate, I wasn't sure what he meant by it needing to be like a Pro series, but I think I get it, although I would think it would have to be built more like an AVRI... I've seen people take baths on many a Custom Classic..
Right. He's talking about the Fender American Professional Jazz:
5.5 K for a USA Spector NS4 Frettless. Quilt Maple, EMG X pups, 18 volt Haz preamp, Bahama Blue Matte, Pau Ferro lined fretboard, 9.5 inch radius fret-board (the 1st ever done by Spector), 3 piece maple neck thru, with carbon stringers in the neck.(Such detail on the tome, it is awesome)
She took 6 months to get, but plays like greased lightening. And the NS body are the most amazing basses I have ever played as far as feel and comfort. Been a Spector Neck thru player for a while, but this was the 1st time I ever had the build to my requirements. And love the NS4 USA Spectors (in fact I own two others).
She is strung with Labella Purple Haze Tape wounds. And has a sound all her own.
CS basses, and particularly relics, have a mojo that can't be defined. I feel the magic, and others may not. My next big bass purchase will be a CS relic. I also completely get it if someone says -waste of money.
Just call PJ with USA Spector and place an order to your specifications. (they will do almost whatever you want) You'll have to wait about 6 months. but get a bass like no other in the world; and it will be the best playing bass you have ever owned, bar none. USA Spectors Rule.
My Spector NS-4 represents one of the best purchases I've ever made.
Yes, I'd lose a big chunk of money if I were to sell it, but I don't buy basses as financial investments - I buy them as sonic investments.
