I think it sold for like $30k or something crazy like that about 5-6 years ago.
I remember when it was on Ebay in 2005. At the time that I found it the bid was around $18,000 and it hadn't reach the reserve price. I think you are right that sold for somewhere around $30k.
I saw Gene playing that bass in Providence in 1978. I was in the third row center. My first "real" concert. I say "real" because I had seen Aerosmith playing a park when they were first starting out in 1972.
