    Actually, I think it is more like $10,000 to $12,000 US. Thought the exchange rate was something like $1.4 US to the pound. :( Really nice looking bass none the less.

    It's $11,941.46 at todays exchange rate.


    Pretty darn steep, but like it says it is an investment. Remember tho on top of that you have insurance which wont be cheap if you actually want to play it! Probaly as much as say $400 a year or so?? - That's a guess tho.

    I think it looks horrible - like stuff you see in pawn shops - seriously I wouldn't give it house room!

    And you could get a fairly nice car for that price.

    I am only interested in basses I can play - collecting old junk is for losers!! ;)

    Like a Micra or something. Yes, agreed.

    I want a nice new shiny cool bass, not some old piece of **** that someones grandad has played.
