Gosh Darn GAS can be so very wierd

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by kevcooke, Oct 11, 2006.

  1. Just watched the John Mayer Trio music vid to 'Who Did You Think I Was?' and now i'm GASing for the Fender custom artist Pino replica....

    I know it can hardly be worth such a vast sum of money, but I'm so strangely drawn to it. Would it be cheaper get a Fender custom shop done to the same specs but without all the chipping and belt buckle rash? And would it look the same without a nitrocellulose lacquer finish?

    ( EDIT MM ) Sorry no GD in that form

    get Nino to make you a nice vintage P bass in the same color. Apply your own belt buckle rash.:)

    not to add to your gas, but the GC here in Nashville has one. It is the sweetest P, or bass for that matter, I think I've ever played. It played like butter, just so smooth, and sounded so so so so good. I couldn't believe it. I pulled it off the wall sceptical at the price tag and such......Man, was I blown away by it. :bassist: :bassist: :bassist: but I don't think I could ever justify the $3K + price tag on it, or proably on any bass for that matter....:crying:
  7. I condemn you to hell... jokes. But really, lol, that didn't really help my GAS at all. I wish I could try one!

    Have Michael Dolan make one for you! The fretless P neck he made for me is super sweet, and his prices are quite reasonable.
