    I've been looing all over trying to find a olympic white jazz bass with matching headstock, I think 65 or 66, I'm somewhat new to the vintage scene and I could sure use some direction. I've been to bass palace,any other suggestions...? also if I cant find a vintage what do you think about the NOS fender 64 jazz basses? Thanks you Jon

    Isnt there one in the classifieds now?
  4. BasicallyBass is advertising a '62 reissue fretless on his signature. He seems kind of mean, though.

    Acutally, you should read this character's posting. I wouldn't buy anything from this guy.

    EDIT(jt): how's about we keep the namecalling out of the post, m'kay? thanks

    Call Jim Winter @ Winter Sound, Gloucester, VA (804) 642-6434. I saw one a few weeks back: flatwounds, brass nut, bound neck, not sure if it had the matching headstock. Some minor finish checking but nothing serious. Good luck!

    IMO there is no comparison between early to mid 60's oly white basses and those from later years. The patina the nitro finish gets from aging is just super. Later finishes are just too thick and plastic looking.

    I am pretty sure I saw one at Sam Ash in NYC on W48th street.

    I played that bass and I almost took it home! It is a custom shop bass but it has some store abuse, dings an scatches all over. I offered the guy like 18 or $1900.00 cash and he would not go that low so I left! The last time I was there the bass was still there albeit high on the wall out of the way of the riff raff.
