    zero FB?

    Watch-out something is a little funky about this one.!

    I'm checking this bass out with Ty and JD. I remember seeing that bass up close at the gallery when it was open. IIRC it originally went for more than $20k.

    yeah that's funny, but I think that he might have been referring to gig-wear... maybe he should have said: "IT HAS NEVER BEEN PLAYED OUT...".


    Cause I can tell you that I never played it, Never saw any cats play it in the Warrior gallery while it was there...but I'm pretty sure it has been played before.
     
  8. Am I the only one who really don't see the point in owning a bass and not playing it, because it's worth more than your car and you're afraid of scratching it? :eyebrow:

    I'll stick with my 2,000$-and-less work horses, thanks.

    I wouldn't buy it, unless I was an extremely rich collector. What's worse is buying a $20K bass, and then playing it and damaging it. The one at superbass is said to have "several very small chips to the inlays, some small scratches." I couldn't let that happen to it if it was mine.

    Also, "the control cavity plate was touched before the paint dried." How does this happen on a bass this expensive? :confused:

    "That one still has the tags on it, Don't touch it, Don't look at it, you were thinking about looking at it"
    " Look at the flame on this one, listen to the sustain, I can't hear anything, we'll if it was plugged in it would really sustain"

    I guess when you are a collector, less wear means that it is worth more... Like you, I can't see having something that I couldn't use. If I was ever to own a bass that was even in the $2000-5000 range, it better be an exquisite bass that I CAN take on a gig... even if it is only for good occassions.


    umm, probably some cat was spacing out and didn't realize that the finish wasn't set yet *touch*, *touch*. QC isn't their strong suit.
