    I know a guy from church who has a Fender MIM Jazz bass he wants to sell. It is about 1-2 yrs old, but is new. He has never used it. Nothing special, wine finish with white pickguard. I know I can get a new one for about $375 or less. What would be a fair price to offer him?

    around 250$!
    just my 2 cents

    About 1/2 of list price is usually a fair price for a used electric guitar/bass.

    In this case, a Fender Standard (MIM) Jazz lists for $599, so $300 would probably be a fair deal...
