This is a do famous artists really use there signature basses. Some I find hard to believe like the John myung yamaha does he use a off the shelf model? Stings new fender does he really use a bass thats worth $650 or what ever street price is on these. Some I can under stand like Stanley Clarkes alembics because they cost a hell of a lot of money and are reflected in his tone just like Micheal Manrings hyperbass. Are we buying cheap rip offs or the real thing, should all signature basses be sworn off because there nothing like what your bass hero plays? Thanks in advance. Hope I haven't offended anyone.
