    Do these things ever actually sell on the Bay?

    If I were paying that money, I would want to play it and pick it up myself.

    $65,000 FedEx insurance.. Um...

    It says it was finished in '64 when it was made, though there's no proof...

    Take it down about 64K and I'd do it, finish is cool but looks too clean

    I'd pay at least £2000 for a 60s jazz, no matter what the finish :D

    I'd give him the 65K but he'll have to throw in the shipping!

    :bag:


    $125 shipping? Really? lol

    Personally if I had $65k I would not buy that bass. Not that i have a problem with that bass or anything, I'm just not a rich collector.

    :bassist:
     
  12. If I had so much money, that I could buy a 65K bass, and not sweat it, I would rather donate the money to some kind of cause.

    Which is precisley why you may never actually have $65K - you're far too charitable :D.

    This one is priced for the "dot com boomers", "Mafioso" and "crooked politicians" :rollno:.

    Do I sound as jealous as I actually am ;)?

    I WAS going to buy it...... but I really need a '64 in Gold Sparkle WITH a matching headstock.:spit::D

    Georgeous bass if it isn't a refin (and even if it is!). But $65k? Waaayyyy to high IMO. Not even really early production. Rare to see early Strats go this high and there are many nice old Gibson goldtop LPs out there in this range too.

    My question is (for TBers that know about this kind stuff) what is it realistically worth if it is 100% original? $20k? $25k? $35k tops?

    More than my entire collection in any case.:spit::D

    now, if it were a Roscoe Beck in gold sparkle, Darkstrike would be selling a kidney.


    :D

    I don't know that I could ever justify blowing $65k on one bass unless it was a charity auction or something.

    I'd chop up the money and eat it in a salad before I bought that bass on eBay.

    How come all the pics look like CGI instead of photos?
     
  20. How is it that the neck, tuners and control plate seem appropriately 'weathered' but the sparkle is crispy clean as is the pickguard, neckplate and covers. With the amount of wear on the edge of the neck above the truss rod, you gotta figure some of that spilled over to the rest of the bass...

    Personally, I'd rather have a couple dozen Laklands...

    Edit: Here's a believable 64 Fender from the classifieds
    Plus, it's almost 90% cheaper!
