Loving the discussion guys! Thanks for taking the time out to talk about it. I do have a list of things I'll mention to ding it on, but the seller already mentioned he has this priced lower than any others in this condition. I'll continue to educate him on the non-original pieces and see if that might do anything. He is a hardcore trader, so I'm sure he traded into this somehow, maybe my reasonable offer will work just fine. I'm not looking to steal it from him, I just want a price that I can turn around and sell it for what I paid without losing more than a handful of dollars. I'm planning on trading a MIA Jazz Bass Five string and a Gallien Krueger 700RBII bass amp head. That's a market value of about $1100, he's told me he prefers trades, and I have this stuff for sale so that's our starting point. Can any of you point me to any recently sold or listed DRs in this price range that I can compare to? Here's what I'm seeing on eBay. This 65, in similar shape, with no PT swap, speaker/reverb leads, but a few other replacements sold for $1900+ shipped http://www.ebay.com/itm/1965-Fender...714?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item1c1fae8e72 Plenty of sold Silverfaces in the $800 range. The more I look, the more I agree with a price around $1000. Anything more than that, and I might as well buy something hand built from one of the respected clone makers out there.
