    I just snagged this up on ebay with a BIN price of $639.00. I have never actually played one but have been considering one for a while and I have heard a lot of good things about them and I thought at that price I really couldn't pass it up. So what do you guys think? Did I do good or what? :)

    You won't regret that buy. I love my RB5 and think it is the best sounding bass that Fender makes. I liked it so much that I ordered a RB4 too.

    You're the bastige! :crying: I looked at that one when it first listed yesterday. I was seriously considering it myself. If it "as new" like he describes it, that is a GREAT price. Congrats! :D

    To be honest, I am surprised that the Bass was not sold before I bought it. I saw it first thing this morning and I did not think it was going to last too long so I made the plunge. Thanks for the congratulations folks. :)

    Looks like an EXCELLENT deal to me. Congrats and welcome to the RB5 club! I play my RB5 as often as my "boo-teek" basses.

    that sounds like a good deal- and apparently if you don't like it, there's a few people here who'll buy it off you ;)

    Thanks, I figure it's a pretty good investment. If I ever decide to sell it I think I will be able to get my money back out of it! Made the decision to buy it that much easier.

    Where can you get a black pickguard for an RB5?

    Tampa-
    Congrats on snagging that one. I love mine. Very versatile.
