So I recently moved to japan, father is in the navy and all that jazz and I happened to come across an american vintage 75 reissue fender jazz bass for 600 dollars. or 60,000 yen :P

anyways, the manager said it was on sale, it was 100,000 yen originally but they were celebrating an anniversary or something, so I bought it. I remember in the good ol' U.S. that the fender jazz bass 75's go for around 1500ish or so dollars? (Not too sure...) But was this a good deal? It's not an american fender by the way, it's CIJ (Crafted in Japan.)
I'm enjoying it anyway, much better than my squier. Just wondering if it was a good deal or not.

The CIJ fenders are better than the MIM fenders IMO. That was a nice find.

A new CIJ Fender for $600 is a great deal. But I mean... the dude said the original price was 100,000, and you paid 60,000... doesn't that tell you all you need to know?

I was looking at a used Warwick Vampyre LTD 5'er for about $200. I went home to grab my wallet and came back and some jerk with an epic beard got it already..

I would keep it but i suppose the resell value would be good compared to the price you bought it for. It's in good condition, right?

Yes, it's brand new as a matter of fact. Only reason it was 40% off was the anniversary the store was having, I was planning to get an Ibanez.

...and the bassist comes up to the EQ and moves all the sliders into the typical smiley face pattern and in a really thick Jamaican accent said "you can't have de bass without de smiley face"
