    Yuck. Gag with tire iron.

    Hate the colors. But love the bass itself.

    But $6000.00? I see no reason for that bass to cost $6000. Absurd.

    If people will pay that kind of money for Fender CS instruments (which they do), then I don't think its unreasonable to be asking it.
    Having said that, I don't know why you'd buy a pre-built CS instrument, rather than having it designed to your specs.

    I'm not sure, but, like a black/red CS Jazz they have, I think it may be meant to represent a bass that's been poorly refinished (you know, repainted a different color without stripping the original finish off first) from blue to gold, and a good part of the gold has worn off.
    EDIT: Actually, after looking at close up pics on MF's website, it looks like it's meant to be a gold flake with transparent blue edging burst finish, and doesn't appear to be worn at all, even though they call it a "Relic".

    Well,

    if you buy that bass, play the first note and remember "if you hear this sound, you've been ripped off".

    Man - buy a Fender Precision Time Machine for 30 percent of the price, bring it to a nitro lacquer specialist and let them paint it that way - for 500 Euros.
    Or buy 3 handmade P-basses from a guitar builder in your area for the same price, which are better, sound better and are your personalized tools.

    I think, in the future the english language will have new words:

    1. "to fender someone" = to sell fools creepy stuff for too much money

    2. "to gibson something" = building replika stuff that isn't historical correct

    3. "to gibson someone" = calling a cop a jew.... (Mel Gibson)

    ROFL

    this has been out for over a year now!

    You all laugh at this now but in 30-40 years it will be worth some major bank.

    I mean hell Look at "floral" telecasters. I bet everyone laughed at them back in the day and now they are worth more, given the market is smaller but there is still a market. 6k for a player? no, that is absurd. 6k for a what will be very expensive collectors bass in the coming years. Yeah, more than likely.

    That's a terrible paintjob and for that money, I could buy an actual vintage p-bass instead of something that's attempting to look old.

    The color is meant to be retro as there were Formica counter tops and vinyl seating in that color in the 60's. It was more of a blend than a burst, but it was sought after in that era.
    As far as the CS goes - if you can afford it, it's worth it. If it's out of reach -it's out of reach. I think they use that number as a bargaining point to start from.
