My 62 J has the same system,but I keep the mutes stored,as I use the back chrome cover on you don't see the holes.
If you think the mute system hard to find,try and buy the correct screws that hold the chrome covers/control panel on,mine are correct but they are virtually impossible to buy anywhere that are correct for the 1960 1963 period

Go on then, I'll sit in the hot seat and ask the question.............

What price do you have on that Jazz?

Pretty poor timing that you've advertised it around bonus time I must say - this is potential divorce material

I was wondering who'd be the first to ask publicly. I wasn't going to be the first because I know I can't afford it but it does have me interested just because of what it is.

at the moment i expect not less than $13.5K. I know it sounds silly. Hopefully this one is the last to be sold.

No asking price for a vintage instrument is silly mate.

Gotta start somewhere, then it's between you and the buyer.

Thanks, yes after I got edumacated yesterday I did a whole heap of searching on these early jazz basses. I'm thinking about modding one of my test beds to match.

Is that les paul recording heavy? A mate of mine had a les paul recording guitar and i recall it was rather weighty.
Very nice collection.

Is that '65 all '65 ? Weren't the block inlay necks late '66 onwards. My '67 has the same neck.. I keep waiting for you to show us the other 60s jazz basses you mention in the OP.
