The Starfire went on to become a classic but the Jet Star.not so much. This very rare bass was introduced around the end of 1964 (appearing in the October 64 pricelist at $245.00) but few if any shipped before 1965. This 1966 model is one of around 200 shipped that year the only year the model was produced in any sizable numbers.
