    Anyone played/own one of these?

    They look very nice, what are they like to play?

    I did a search and found your question on the Frank Bello SIgnature bass. Did you end up playing or getting one, if so what are they like. I have seen them online for $1000, way too much, It was a limited run so they are rare.

    Yea i heard they pretty much sucked and he is not the best bassist to have a sig .Everyone knows who sting or geddy lee is, but him eh not so much, i am a big gnr fan but i am surprissed they are still selling duff's bass.
  5. Not debating the marketing merits of the bass one way or the other, but everyone who listens to thrash metal knows Frank Bello's band. Plus, they're doing a Squier version right now, so maybe his target market just skews younger and cheaper.
