I was strolling out to my local GC, and I saw a red bass with a funny headstock on the wall. Looked at the tag, and it said Bartolini custom bass. I'm like, batolini doesn't make basses, and upon looking at the headstock, I saw the Brubaker sig on there. (What idiots The only thing I'm not trhilled with was the gold hardware, but aside from that, it was sweet! Question is, what's the used market like on one of these? These guys were pulling the old, it has a case, but that's not included in the price...type deals...Seriall is 99043, which makes me believe that it may be a 99(since I've seen the smaller luthies use dates for the serials...), but is $1400 too much for something like this? Any thoughts?
