1965 Fender Jazz - OMG!

Recommended Posts

He does get some great stock. He advertised recently a 65 L series matching headstock Jazz in the same colour but very worn & faded  at £10k. I emailed to say I'd be prepared to pay that price, but it appears a number of people had beaten me to it. 

The one advertised currently is just eye-candy. Might struggle getting£22k past the chancellor, though!

Was in Cheltenham the other week, right by that place. Never heard of it fortunately as I’d now be in the possession of a criminal record.

Yes, the Sting/ Shaggy record.

Grossly overpriced even for a collector. A collector would want a return, fat chance at those prices this side of a decade.

An investor would want a return. A collector - not necessarily.

You'd have to keep it in an atmospherically controlled vault.

You could never play it unless you were truly unconcerned about money,, every chip and ding would knock thousands off the value.

The guitarist in our band has a 62 strat, gigs it occasionally. Everyone thinks it’s a reissue unless they really know what they’re talking about. Re finish so slightly different rules compared to the bass above.

I wouldn't - I would sell it, replace it with a limelight that looked the same (and probably sounded the same) and take the £22k change.

I'll have to admit that I'm not up to speed on vintage gear , but at those prices , it almost makes Andy Baxter's place look like Cash Converters

Perhaps it’s just me, but I’m always a little concerned when someone only has near mint condition guitars from the 50s and 60s in stock. They’re so rare and the value so obvious you do wonder where they all come from...

There is the other thought - its 53 years old and it is mint condition. Was it really that bad that noone wanted to play it in 50 years?

That’s a good point! 

It’s obviously a lovely looking thing, but it’s all about the condition and it’s scarcity than playability I guess. 

Personally, I don’t really like the colour!

Yeah everyone has that thought. Then you play it and you hear 53 years of maturing wood ageing gracefully into a light resonant punchy bit of gorgeousness.
