    WHOA! Even with the typical markdown from list, I think someone would have to be from outer space to buy one for 3 grand! But, "there's one born every minute" as the saying goes.

    I'd just do like Bootsy did and have one custom made for much less.

    Last time I saw him, whichever Space Bass he was using had 4 outputs.

    Lordy be, the funk's on me -- keep that funk alive.

    I can think of better things to spend $4500 on.
     
  5. Thats not to expensive. :OWhy is Washburn making it? Nothing against Washburn, I own one but . . . Have the ever made a high priced bass before?

    My main question is does it come with the glasses?

    $4500, and it doesn't even have the trademark 80 pickups! One for the part-time collector, I suppose.

    For $4500, I'd be giving Mr. Fodera & Lauricella a call.

    Who am I kidding, I'd get a Zon 5 used and pocket the change.;)
