This is kinda hip...
Looks nice, and it must be cheaper than Bootsy's sig. bass. I heard that thing was around 3k, anybody remember who makes it?
Anyone in his/her right mind willing to fork out 3 grand for a Washburn*?
I'm guessing (hoping) not.
* Note to any Washburn users - I'm not putting down your bass. I'm merely thinking of relative values, here.
only 3 grand... Its 4500 thats too damn mutch for a washburn
Washburn made the Bootsy Collins Star Bass? I thought it was either Bass Labs or Human Base?
Since this one is a USA Curbow, it was probably in about that same price range--maybe more, since it's not one of Curbow's standard designs (and not one he's likely to see too much demand for...).
This one also came up on Ebay a while back, but I don't remember what it went for.
is everyone ignoring the fact that the real Bootsy Collins bass has 5 jazz bass pickups?
EEbass04, Glad you beat me to it! The Washburn Deal must be relatively new, cause I doubt that Bootsy used them as a manufacturer for the original Bootsy bass, or the at least the ones that he R E A L L Y Gigs with. Any body Know what the company is that makes his Star basses?
I don't know, but I like it!!!
$3,000 is indeed about $4,500 too much for a washburn...
I saw it in Greg's shop when it was being finished, and the pics really don't do it justice.
I think he said someone in Cincinnati actually ordered it.
I thought about having him use that body template when I got my 8 string fretless, but I decided against it. I thought the novelty would wear off pretty quickly.
If I had unlimited resources, I'd have Greg make me one to add to my collection of Curbows. I'd certainly order one from him waaaaay before I'd buy a Washburn.
