couldnt care if god himself played it. its worth about 800 bucks at best (at best! probably much less...)
Buy it now for only 50,000 pounds....WHAT A BARGAIN!
Perhaps they can get Steve Wishnevsky to do a refin on her.
Auctions like this just KILL ME!
I thought sid's bass was yellow, beat even more to hell and had a black PG? or was it white w/ black PG?
why would anybody want a bass that some junkie hack owned?!
Sid was a punk...they oughta sell either the bass Glen Matlock or Steve Jones used to lay down all of Sid's tracks with (and I don't mean the ones on his arm...)
OMG THAT POOR BASS!
Man, and I thought this 1951 P was going for alot...
It's been abused, probably peed on, dropped and probably isn't playable worth a thousand pounds. Let alone five hundred pounds. Maybe I'll give him $500, but that's about it.
That same bass was on eBay about a year ago if I remember correctly. With the same history and cigarette burn mark on the headstock. I remember thinking, what a classy guy to stick a lit cigarette on his headstock. Maybe its a blues thing.
Wonder if he bought it from the guy that had it up for auction or if it didn't sell the first time.
Well it's obviously been thrashed around, but if Sid owned it, the frets are probably in great condition!
haha, i'd put my money on that too.
but your gonna have at least £49,900 of heroin stuffed in that bass
I would NEVER EVER EVER EVER pay that much money for SOMEONE ELSES BASS
If i ever had the money, i would buy MY OWN custom bass that i know is just mine. Maybe one alembic, or a sadowsky NYC + fbass BN5 + fbass BNF5 + ... ... ...
If this were verifyable as Sid's bass, it would be worth well more than 800 bucks, and it wouldn't matter what condition it was in. It's definitely not as iconic as Sid's old white Precision or Simonon's 'Pressure Drop' P, but I would guess as a piece of Punk memorabilia, it would be worth somewhere between 4 and 10K.
It really isn't about the playability or the condition.
I don't think it's even worth $50. What a pile of crap, and the fact that Sid Vicious SUPPOSIVELY played it, who cares? That's about as big of a joke as when I heard Flea say that Sid was the best bassist of our time.
