    So, there I am, looking over the basses for sale on Ebay, when lo and behold there is a Music Man StingRay on there from GC. They say it was owned by Flea, who bought it at an Eddie Van Halen chairty auction. The asking price? $5600!!!

    $5600 for a '94 StingRay? What is this guy smoking? I couldn't believe it.

    What gets me is that they are so ignorant of everything bass that they list the body wood of this particular bass as maple instead of ash. Un-freakin-believable!!!!!! I've seen GC hollywood list a refinished+unoriginal pickups and pots 63 jazz bass for 4500. Evil Empire Indeed.

    I just have never got this type of nonsense. Who in their right mind pays that kind of money for a knackered 2nd hand instrument? Plus Fleas a decent bassist but c'mon he's hardly an icon (yet anyway) - hardly worth any extra intrinsic value in my opinion. Maybe I'm weird, I'd rather buy a new unsullied one if I was in the market. :meh:
