Damn, just when I was thinking of selling a few vital organs in order to buy it myself!
I wonder if he bought it from himself for the price to be so high? I'm sure he'll play the crap out of it. also when your a millionaire you can buy most any bass you want. he looks happy & more power to him.
He's glowing, the bass is glowing... I would be, too.
Please link the article
So....what is it,exactly? (Guessing a 60's J bass,but why $45k?)
He is definitely on a mission, snapping up vintage basses for his collection.
Love the colour of that bass!
I'm curious to know more about the specifics of the price - why is it worth that? (not being snarky, I'm genuinely curious, and not a vintage bass expert by any stretch!)

He does have this for a more reasonable $10,995.
I like it!
1965 Fender Jazz Bass | The Guitar Broker
This is a fabulous early production Custom Color “3 Knob” Jazz Bass from Fender’s earliest & best era, its ultra rare Fiesta Red finish is beautiful having an extremely clean front w/some slight buckle wear on its back, it is still very “Pink” as most yellow out to an orange-like color, its unbound Clay Dot inlaid early Slab-Rosewood fingerboard feels simply delicious, its pencil dated 1/62, its pretty tortoise’gard pulls this all together, its 2 pickups are super punchy & have a deep bass tone unlike most Pre-CBS Jazz Basses, pot codes date to the 52nd week of 1961, its got the earliest type Jazz Bass logo with the “contour body” portion made all in 1 decal, other than some slight wear & some weather checking, its 100% original in all respects, it still retains its full set of string mutes & every single screw from new, this is truly one of the rarest & most valuable Fender Basses in the World, a true rare find early Custom Colored 3-knob of its type…delicious !, she is exceptionally clean overall & comes in its original Brown Tolex hard case.
Back in the 70's i had a '66 just like this one. Paid $300 for it,had it refretted,and sold for $450 after 6 monthes. Obviously i should have hung onto it!
He has a '74 Rick 4000 for $3995,which is insane.....(but it is a beautiful mapleglo!)
That bass has a beautiful finish. I wish I was the one selling it...
If Geddy wants to buy a bass for that, then good on him!
45K Jazz, for me would have to be a stack knob.
Hear he's put it on layaway til Christmas. Got 0% financing.
For 45K it would have to be clad in 24K gold and diamonds and come with a helper monkey to maintain it on a whim for me.
Sucks to be you..
Doesn't look like the same bass he has on. Nonetheless the Fiesta, tort, rosewood combo is my favourite. I'll have to be content with my roadworn until I win the lottery. I keep intending to do so but just haven't found the time to buy a ticket .
