    Wow...its up to 15 grand already... What I could do with that money... I'm going to put my 2009 Bongo 5 up there also. I'll start it at $10,000 since its been owned by me... Ok I'm done. Thanks for listening.
  5. I dont understand why people like Social D so much.... and I really dont know why someone would pay more that $4,000 for that beat thing

    I'd pay that for a Bad Religion played bass. IF I had it. But, true punk rockers are broke.
    The rich ones are rich because they earned it*.

    *Fall Out Boy, Good Charlotte, Modern Green Day, and Modern AFI not included.
    Just for the heck of it I'll also throw in My Chemical Romance and Blink 182 snd their numbered brothers SUM 41.

  8. I have a feeling that I wouldn't dig their music. But,I do admit,that's a cool-ass name for a band.

    We don't have enough laughing smilies on here for me to respond properly to what I think a beat to $hit 69 Jazz Bass owned by a punk rocker should actually be worth but it would be a little less than the asking price by maybe $25,500 or so. Looks more like a pawn shop model than a collectable to me. But one of P.T. Barnum's suckers will but it.

    Not worth 25K, but Social Distortion kick ass. I happen to like Mike Ness' solo roots rock/country stuff even better, but they had an awesome way of making punk rock out of what amounts to old school country/rock/roots songs.
  11. What's even more incredible is that someone's already put a $15k+ bid on it.....I recently had a '66 Jazz in my store that was appraised at $7500, but I don't see that particular bass being worth another $7500 let alone another $17500. It's not like Jaco owned it or anything :p

    Social Distortion is awesome. And since someone else mentioned it in this thread, AFI is my favorite band and I don't even have enough words for them. With that said, if the money was expendable that would be really cool to own......but you'd need a whole lot of money for something like that to be expendable.

    Call me crazy, but I guess I never really saw Social D as being a "punk" band. I know that is the label that they typically get, but as far as the music goes, I just don't see it. And for the record, I'm a pretty big fan.
  15. Sorry, I really don't care who owned it. I wouldn't pay that much for any bass.

    Seller makes claims but says nothing about authentication documents. Does he have authentication of the supposed letter by John Maur? I doubt it. Its just a very beat up fender bass and nothing more as is.
  17. It still looks cool.

    Okay, you're crazy!

    If you haven't already, I strongly recommend watching the documentary, "Another State of Mind." Social Distortion started out way back in 1978, as one the greatest punk bands ever. Mommy's Little Monster is all my all time favorite record. Of course, after MLM they broke up for several years. Then Mike Ness restarted the band with "Prison Bound" with a different rhythm section and a much twangier, countrypunk sound. Each album got less & less "punk" and became more rock oriented.

    But back to the topic at hand. The MLM era's bassist was Brent Liles, who played a Ric. I might be willing to shell out a couple of grand for the bass played on my all time favorite record, but this thing is ludicrous!
