What does a 71 fender jazz in good condition go for? or what would you pay?

I've only got one vintage Fender - a mid-'70s Telecaster Bass, heavily modified. The idiot friend I bought it from (for $200!!!) tried to turn it into the earlier style Tele/original P-bass, so he had the humbucker taken out and a space routed for the single-coil, in addition to adding a Badass II and having it refinished black. Oh, and then he didn't like the single coil sound, so he had it re-routed again for a regular P-bass pup! I think he just let the guy that did the mods keep the humbucker, but Jim Mouradian at Cambridge Music tracked down a NOS humbucker in the box, along with the right pickguard (from someplace like Warmoth). I love the thick fat neck. I'm thinking of replacing the P pup with something like a Fralin? Also, it's currently wired with the regular volume controlling the humbucker volume and the tone controlling the P pup volume, so no tone control. I'd kind of like to have it rewired with separate outs for the two pups, but that won't happen for a while...

Thought I'd get my pair in here...
My '66 J (that lawn is getting very familiar around here) and my '76 P:

Nice pair you got there, man! That's a pretty J - I like the dark board and pearl blocks.

Thanks a lot! And a big thanks to Kebo. He told me he got it from the original owner. What a player!!! I always wanted a BB neck too. I tried several in his stable at the time and this just floated to the top. Very even response across the neck and smoking pickups! Another cool thing is the original owner kept it in a body shield so the back is practically pristine. I feel very lucky to have it.

My 72 Telecaster. Rebuilt if from scratch after someone tried to destroy it with mods.
