    a Fender Jazz bass autographed by:

    John Paul Jones, Geddy Lee, Jaco, Victor Wooten, Dusty Hill, among about 12 others I cant think of.

    Well a store in Walt Disney World has one. In downtown disney, in a store called starabilias, there lies THE LEDGENDS OF BASS Bass.

    Anyone in the Orlando region should go check it out.

    And it Cost..........

    A whopping 12000 dollars.

    Discuss.

    Is that the store that has all the posters signed by people? Last time I was there (for a Clutch concert at the House of Blues) there was a guitar signed by Jimi Hendrix, one signed by The Beatles, a huge things of signatures from every single one of the presidents and a life size Terminator thing. A cool store fo' sho'.

    Now if the $12K came with a year's worth of private lessons by them, say one a day from each for a solid month (except Jaco of course) we'd be talkin'.

    I think $12,000 is a bit high for a signed off the shelf Fender Jazz.

    If it had been owned by one of them, maybe.

    It would be a cool item, but I wouldn't pay more than $1000, as is.

    I'd give someone $10. That's about it.

    I almost dropped $1200 for a Geddy Jazz signed by all of Rush. After I realized that I would be paying about $500 for a pickguard with a few autographs, I came to my senses and bought a new Geddy for $700 or so.

    If it was played by one of the musicians, I would be interested. By at 12k? Wow.

    I would be interested in how they got all of these guys to sign it considering Jaco has been dead for 20 years.
     
  13. I'd carefully scrape about 2mm of the finish off from under the signatures and remove the pickguard, then put them on a bass worth having.

    So $0, the cost of a new bass, and a court sentence for vandalism.

    +++1 on the goof off, although that might mess up the finish.

    I once asked Kurt Vonnegut for an autograph and he said "Why?" After a great 45 minute talk (on a plane) we exchanged autographs (his idea, not that I'm known). I've never wanted another one since it couldn't beat that experience.

    sadly, autograph was stolen....but I have the memory!

    I'd pay about 20% less than what ever market value would be for the bass in "as new" condition.

    Sorry, Autographs de-value the instrument IMO.

    Basses were meant to be played. Want an autograph? Sign an album cover, C.D. sleeve, or a photograph or something. Don't deface a usefull instrument. Just my opinion.
     
  19. And this is relevant...how? :rolleyes:
