    HOLY GRAIL, THIS???? NO WAY!!! i wouldn't pay a lot for that. I prefer RITTER. :bassist:
     
  8. I don´t get it. So this is just similar bass to Macca´s, not one he has played?

    Even if it was Paul´s old axe that price would be way too high. Now it´s just ridiculous.
     
  9. 75 Grand. 75 Grand. I wouldn't pay 75 Grand for Paul Macartney, let alone a bass 'like' his.
     
  10. yea, but this is probably the first left handed hofner EVER made. See, the story goes that pauls was the first left handed one made, and that he got it custom ordered... but this could disprove that. Oh, and I definatly disagree that it isnt worth 75 thousand, but worth more that your regular 63 hofner...I'd say maybe even up to $15-20 thousand. then again, I'm no expert. :meh:

    This is absurd on so many levels it's hard to know how to react . . . (rolls around on floor laughing really hard) . . . OK, now that THAT is out of the way -

    I read through the description, waiting to get to the part where it would talk about the documentation of this being young Paul McCartney's first bass . . Oh, wait . . No? Just made at the same time? Same thing, kind of? Well, HEY, just let me run out and mortgage my house and sell my children, what a great deal!!

    I say we find the blithering idiot posting it, scruff him by the back of the neck like a diseased alley cat, and boot him out the Ebay front door on his rear... :D
     
  15. I might pay that much if Paul puked on it, or pleasured a chick with it. But not how it is.

    Guy should blow the dust out of his keyboard. Seems the "0" is sticking.

    I wonder how much I can get for mine? ;) (Yes I have one and I figure it's worth about 1/75000 of his asking price)
