    Hi,

    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.

    Regards, Anthony

  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.
