I want one so bad. They sound great, play great, I love them. I am a fender guy so they feel different but I have played them enough to know I like them. The problem, I just can't justify spending more than $800-$1000 on a bass. I don't care about appearance that much. I have been looking for a beat up one that plays well. Seems like every one treats them like they are made of gold. (probably due to price) you never see a beater Rick............ I may have to bite the bullet on this one. I know there are deals out there but am I wrong for wanting to get one for that price? Is it unreasonable? If I had one and was going to sell it that's what I would assume they were worth judging buy playability.
