    Even though I seriously doubt my bank account could withstand the bidding, I think I'll get the catalogue for that auction from their website.

    Sotheby catalogues have wonderful pictures of each item.
    AFAIK, Entwistle had at least one pristine pre-CBS Precision from every year they were made. I'd frame the pictures.

    Thanks for the heads-up, mjw!
     
  3. "Frankenstein" expected to sell for $8000 - $11,200?

    that seems a bit low- considering that pre-CBS P basses without any celebrity connection go for around £4000 in Vintage and Rare Guitars, Denmark street.
    even 70's P basses go for £1000 plus.

    I wonder how much the "Fenderbird" T-Bird/P bass hybrids will go for.

    I believe the spider web-inlaid Alembics will also be included...

    For some reason, I think it would be nice if the whole collection stayed together. John had reasons behind buying those basses, it sad to see them split up:(
