    more like "official support group". i have a 2000 ford station wagon that everyone calls the silver bullet, and most of my basses are worth more than it. certainly the rick and warwick, and probably the MIM fender as well. lol.

    obviously the cheaper your bass is the funnier it is, but all you guys with alembics and ritters are welcome too, unless you're driving lamborghinis or something.

    feel free to post pics of your bass with your car for humorous comparison; i'm not nearly motivated enough to bother doing that myself, which is probably one of the reasons my bass is worth more than my damn car.

    Had a '86 BMW 535 in my driveway that was bought used for $4500. MSRP on my USA Spector NT was a touch over $7000. Don't have the car, still have the bass :bassist:

    I'll be hard pressed to find something that costs more than my '09 WRX :D

    I keep looking out the window at my car thinking about how many basses I could buy if I sold it. Hmmmm...

    I also have a 2000 Ford Focus Wagon - "the ghetto sled", as it`s known. It`s a total piece. And yes, my MIM J Deluxe is worth more. Hell, my Squier VM is almost worth more. Would take a pic, but why ? It`s red, dirty, beat-up and ugly. Barely makes it up a hill, feels like it`s gonns fly apart @ 70. But it has an awesome stereo :)

    How about me?

    I ride a bike that was given to me by a frustrated student stranger yelling "**** this bike, you want it?"

    it has no brakes, no gears that work, the chain slips gears when i pedal hard.
    Total price $free.00

    I play a Roscoe Century 5 with a custom ramp i built between pickups and nordy dual coils on the way.
    Total cost ~~ $2700

    am I in or whatt

    I used to drive my three Alembic Series 2s around in a Chevy truck that I bought for $2000 from a hillbilly truck driver. I eventually sold the Alembics for $7000, $5000 and $2700 so my kids could ride in something decent.

    94 ford explorer...bought for 500, and probably worth about 150 or 200 now. technically 384,xxx but the speedometer is broken and reads 1.4 miles for every 2. So it's easily over 500,000 with all the driving i've put on it in the 3 years i've had it. easy.

    bass: Tune TBJ152, retail on the site is 1,000 ish...

    I just sold a 94 escort for $700? Three kids learned to drive stick on it, and as far as I know it had the original clutch in it. Unfortunately, my current set up is worth less than that, based on what I payed for it.

    so are you essentially saying that you have a bass rig and NO CAR AT ALL?? because if that's the case then you deserve a place of honor in this group.

    I have a Peavey Grind 4 that I bought w/ a hard case for $380 new. I went to trade in my 92 Toyota Corolla with 523,000 miles on it and the dealership told me they didn't even want it as a trade. I got laid off a week later and I'm still driving it today. It'll hold me, my son, and all my gear at the same time. I hate driving with a 410 in the front passenger seat!
