    So, I have this cheap "Rogue RJ-100" Jazz bass copy I've been using for recording, and it works ok, but lately I've been jones'n for a "keeper", so onto eBay I went...

    I saw this going for $499 or "Best Offer":

    It's a 2015 Fender MIM Standard... and I'm a sucker for brown sunburst finishes.

    Anyway, I really don't need another guitar - and the Rogue works just fine - so I placed a ridiculously low offer of $400 (I decided to only spend $450 max for it).

    He then responded with an equally high counter offer (dropping only $10 off the price).

    After waiting a long while I countered with $425.

    He countered with $479.

    I slept on it, then threw in my final offer of $450 and I'll be damned if he didn't accept it!

    So now I am awaiting my latest (somewhat unexpected) acquisition.

    Side note: I was also looking at a 2008 Fender Std Jazz bass in my local Craig's List that I could have probably gotten for $350 or less, but it was candy apple red and had the serial number decal on the front of the headstock and I prefer the cleaner look of the newer headstock logo:

    I have to say I'm more excited than I am regretful, so that's at least a good sign!

    I'll post picts when I get it...

    Although I'm primarily a guitarist I do enjoy playing bass now and again, but I can't say the Rogue was especially inspiring.

    I have a feeling the Fender will get far more attention... (poor Rogue)...

    Well, she finally arrived:

    I even got a new case, which arrived within an hour after getting it:

    The strap is a cheapie I had for the last bass. I think I'll be upgrading soon.

    I haven't had a chance to plug it in yet, but it feels super comfortable and the setup it near perfect for me...
