How much would you pay?

I want this bass but the price is insane for a copy/wannabe
If you were to make an offer for this bass, what would you propose?

If this interests you there are many others like this on Ebay by other builders at 1/3 or 1/4 of this price.

Not that much.. For that kind of money I would be getting a MTD 535, or a Fodera or something along those lines..

That is a beautiful bass.

However, if you can't play it and feel it you have no idea what it is worth. And from what I know about Carl Thompson, he uses one piece bolt-on necks.

And if you want a Carl Thompson there is one on Ebay for 4.5k.

Any offer I might make would just make the seller mad or feel insulted. If I had some cash I really wanted to burn i might offer $1200....

+1. Or an actual CT for that kind of cash.

Without being able to play it I would be very weary, and even then the resale value would be next to nothing as it's a completely unknown bass. Being on Ebay it's difficult to tell anything about it. I've seen basses like that come from Brazil and China for like $200.

If you like that, check out Shawn May Custom Basses out of Detroit - you can get something similar for a small fraction of that asking price.
