The vintage guide is close.
With the original case, I've seen nice '69-'70 SB Jazzes selling for $3000 lately.

Hey I just got a guitar from you! if you want to get rid of it then I'd say get an Alembic! (it's not going to be easy to top an exploiter for 150 bucks) but I'd go for a Europa or a signature. think about getting rid of it though like a tattoo (you think about it for 6 months then if you still want to then do it) that bass will only go up in value (not that alembics won't they are my favorite) I'm just saying make sure of what you trade for. Unless it's "just a bass" to you but if it were me I'd be pretty picky (even though I am not a fender fan....yea I said it!) and have to think awful hard just because of what it is. it does look perfect, good luck, and I can't wait to see that 12 string!
