I have the opportunity to get a Fender Jazz Bass '62 reissue for 500$... apparently, it's crafted in Japan, I haven't seen it yet... i've seen one on ebay going for 1000$, so would 500$ be too good to pass up?
Sounds pretty solid. As always try and haggle down a bit but that's still a good deal.
Sounds like a decent price for an MIJ. If you can, I'd check it out first, just to make sure its in good condition and in good working order.
he said there were some dings on it... I don't have much money right now, so I only want to buy it if it's an amazing deal and that if I regret it I can sell it for profit =p
You should be able to resell it for a little more or at least what you got it for.
