    You know, compared to what I've seen from vintage Fender basses as of late, that is a really good price. I'd have to sell my 87 Monte SS just to have it. Man that's sweet!!!!

    The fact that the pickup wires were cut makes me nervous -- thats an old trick when a refin is done to make the solder joints appear original.

    Yeah, no kidding.

    :eyebrow:

    Very odd... even more odd that the seller seems to remember everything about the bass EXCEPT for that detail.

    Can anyone think of any other reason why something like that would have been done?

    If someone tried to sell an Ibanez or Cort with a missing fret where "It was not set in properly at the factory, and it began popping up at the top. I fought with it for a while, but it kept getting worse until I finally had to pull it out at a gig. Never needed it or missed it, so I never replaced it" would folks think it was a well made instrument worth spending over five grand on? :bag:

    I think someone would be crazy to spend that much money on an Ibanez or Cort in any case...unless it came with $4500 cash in the gig bag

    The fact is (am I really going here?) vintage Fenders appreciate in $$$ and will continue to appreciate for a long long time. That's it.

    Many people would spend over $5k on this bass, yes. In fact, there's probably many people that would spend over $10k on this bass...even $15k if the seller has a stubborn reserve...

    I still prefer new stuff...but it's always cool to hear the histories. Except for the 'cut wires & stuff'.

    I'm in love! :cool:
     
  16. It's a shame it'll probably be bought and not played.

    Very cool, even though I'm not a Fender guy, I'd like to have the cash to buy it. It hurts even more that it just 15 miles down the road from my home :crying:

    currently at 7500 and with a missing last fret it could still go as high as 30 grand. Yeah, 30 G's. I still remember a pile of 70's JB's going for 800 at my guitar center when I was in my teens.

    If he could produce pictures on any of those guys playing it, it would be cool.


    Not saying he didn't, but if say I was playing a party for U2 (yeah right) and Bono walks up and asks to play Johnny B Goode, I would hope there was a camera around.

    Maybe Ike ripped the wires?

    If there's Elvis DNA on it, maybe we can clone him. That'd be worth $30K.
