    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.

    I do like how they go right for it and skip the $5999.99 BS.

    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.
