Amazingly, last night I was at a buddy's house watching the new Sheehan, MacAlpine, Portnoy DVD. I was secretly lusting for Billy's bass the whole performance. I decided to hit some pawn shops and Thrift Stores today. Struck out at all until the last stop before calling it a day. I walked in and saw this behind the counter. I was praying I could afford it. It was tagged at $600.00 and begged for the "good guy" deal as I've bought a lot of stuff there. He said $275.00 and Merry Xmas. Now, it's far from mint and has a few scars...personally a mint Sheehan bass looks weird to me. They need to look a bit abused. From what I understand only 150 in this color were made. I can't wait for band rehearsal tonight!!
