  1. Today even basses from the late 90s get offered as being "vintage" more than once... I've owned a '79 Fender that had soft areas in the dark part of the sunburst. In some places fibres from the case interior were stuck in it. It were just a few little places though, not as bad as the lefty from the reverb listing.
  2. I'd happily exchange a combination of this basses for a good <65 jazz bass with Brazil fretboard; - Rickenbacker 4001 Azureglo '74 - Fender Precision '75 mocha (not for sale, only available for trade) - Fender Custom Shop '62 Jazz Bass (also for sale here)

  4. Classic head from SWR: Its a nice amp with a good sound. I think it works specially well with active basses. I haven't used it for a few months now as I've purchased a louder amp to go with my standalone 8 ohm cab (this head goes as low as 2ohm). Asking €250 I am located in the Netherlands. Its available for local pickup or I can ship at buyers risk and expense.
  5. To me it looks like a date; 09-14-81. Anyway, doesn't matter much Monaco Yellow is great as well!
  6. Nice one! You don't see these being offered very often. The sticker in the neck pocket seems te be helpfull with a more specific dating: Glwts!
  7. Fender CS '62 Jazz Bass Relic Very nice Custom Shop Fender Jazz in aged candy apple red relic finish. It's a lovely, well built bass. The neck feels great and allows low action. The sound is classic jazz bass. I'd say it sounds a bit warmer than my 65/66 jazz. She sounds great with either flats or rounds. She will be sold strung with Fender nps rounds. The bass is in good condition. Of course it's a relic model.. Everything functions like it should. The weight is 4kg on my kitchen scale. The original brown tolex hardcase is included, as well are the certificate, chrome covers and some other stuff. €2.950 As for (partial) trades I am mainly interested in; old Music Man Sabre, small (think 2x10) 8ohm cab to use as standalone for small gigs, maybe an old mustang bass or jmj reissue, japanese Ibanez atk305, Modulus, high end Ibanez SR 5 or 6 string, vintage Fender Jazzmaster, jaguar or duo Sonic guitar... Also: good 1965 or older jazz bass in player grade (max 4kg, Brazil fretboard & clay dots, refinished body). In this case I can offer a combination of basses/other stuff. I am located in the Netherlands. Local pickup is preferred, but I am willing to ship at buyers risk.
  8. I assume the most important characteristic of the neck type is the nut width? I think the C necks will all be the same in nutwidth. I've owned a 66 P with C neck which felt really wide compared to my other basses. Playability was really great though, but for my hands a slimmer profile is more comfortable.

  11. Haha 😅. I'll write in dutch next time and let Google translate do the work.
  12. I almost purchased a 63 Jazzmaster guitar from a well regarded guitar shop (Kauffman's guitars) here in the Netherlands. It would have been all original apart from a refin and an added string tree. On closer inspection after the initial purchase the following could be added in the list of mods; replaced fretboard (really good job though, hard too spot at first sight), tuners, pots, 1 pickup, wiring.... I handed them back the guitar, and they weren't too happy. Actually they were whizzed that I took off the pickguard to check as it's so vulnerable. They accused me that the pickguard got warped and shrunk in the short time it was with me, because I took it off for inspection which I should never have done. Luckily I kept screenshots from their initial listing which showed that nothing had changed while it was with me. But they tried to pull me off... As for prices of old Fenders; you also often see it happen that sellers copy prices from other (reverb) sellers. Some add a little to that price as a margin, and after a while every 78 jazz is listed at €3500+....
  13. Nice trio. Those Flea basses are something special indeed. I like the look of that 2 pu Wal too, never played one though. My guess is that Bunion got a very cool 63 P in return... Also lovely🙂
