    Does anyone on these boards have one?? Im really curious to find out what they're like. I can't see anyone but the most absolutely diehard bootsy fan buying these. Just... no. :eyebrow:

    Heh, check out the first user review for a laugh.
  5. Rumour has it (I know, because I'm starting it) that Roger Sadowsky will soon be offering a Bootsy model, too.

    It will have 5 sadowsky jazz pickups to 5 Sadowsky Pre's and 5 VTC's and 5 output jacks!
  6. Seriously, if it had all the pickups in their proper spaces, I'd seriosuly consider testing one. Until then, I'm not laying a hand on one of these.

    I agree. God. Imagine a Fodera Space Bass. It'd be about $36,000!

    I agree, by not fitting 5 pickups, they really limited it's appeal. Most people would buy one just for the "My bass has more pickups than yours" factor.

    A $2,700.00 Washburn :eyebrow:

    But it does say you get a 'free case' ;)

    Wonder how many of the 100 sell?
  12. what he said.

    honestly though i would get it even with only 2 pickups if it sounded good and i had 2700 grand for it. i mean come on, LOOK AT IT.

    When they first launched these a couple years ago they were "asking" something around $4,500. Guess reality is slowly seeping in. By 2009 they'll be priced right.

    Am I seeing it wrong, but why is the list price say 1200 bucks while the site is offering it for 2700?

    Looks like 4499 to me. It's hard to tell with it crossed out like that.

    No, list is 4499.99.
    You'd have to be THE Bootsy fan and have a couple of big brass ones to take that out.
    Bootsy was Bling before Bling was cool.

    If you had $2,700,000 you'd buy the real deal wouldn't you?
