    8k is the starting bid with reserve not met. Buy it now of 10k So I'd say the reserve is probably around 9k or so.
    Guess it goes up there with the $900 Peavey T-40's.
    I never liked the Gibson V style so I'll pass on an imatation as well. :smug:

    The heck with bidding, I'm going for the "Buy It Now" option.

  12. LOL.
  13. :rolleyes: :rolleyes: hmmmmmmmmmmm.

    and to think, i paid a measly $250 for my non chainsawed

    ibanez flying v. i feel so guilty having deprived someone of the
    $7,750 that i rightfully owed them.
  14. I think you're actually right, the only pic where you can see the logo is one where he could easily just copy and paste it from somewhere and there's some of that JPEG fuzz stuff around just the logo, like it was copied with fuzz and just pasted into the picture on top of the headstock.
    I think i'm just trying to boost my ego as a super detective though
    :eyebrow:. But anwyay that's one pretty bass, 'tis a shame it's so expensive and they're so damn uncomfortable!

    Cool bass, insane price. I see alot of that on ebay (as well as all the guitar stores in Seattle). Lame.
  16. Information Highway robbery?

    Me thinks that's just a tad overpriced.
