wow, very nice.
Man, that is awesome!
I LOVE those!
these are actually pictures i got from ebay.. its a bass on sale..
That is a great looking bass!
Would I pay 10k for it... not if I was Bill Gates!
Actually the BIN is higher yet: $10400. It's a beautiful bass, & rare (BTW, a 1967, not a '76, according to the ad) but there's no bass on earth worth that kind of money. I buy 'em to play 'em, not to put 'em in a sealed glass case.
I once saw one of these, hanging in a music store. Passed on it, thought it was too expensive @ $1500. But back in those days, a 4001 went for 400-500. So everthing's relative, I guess. Too much $$$ for my blood.
omg! next time you see a 4005 for $1,500 buy it.
Gorgeous, for sure, but as much of a Ric fanboy as I am, I'd never drop 10 grand on a bass. Not even a beaut like that.
Uh... disregard previous: DO NOT WANT!
I wouldn't spend $10,000 for that bass nor would I pay for similarly overpriced examples such as '81/82 Gibson Flying V bass ($4500-5000) or early '70s Telecaster basses ($4500-6500).
All 3 are nice, but I don't go for the "pay 3x the price of a comperable bass because it is rare" thing.
P.S. It is a wicked bass though.
To each their own.
10K sure. In a heartbeat! Try to find another one in fireglow.
its my dream bass..
I'm in love with that bass. If I had 10k, I might consider spending it on that.
yep i would consider it too.
but i am not sure of my final desicion
You could get one built, or get a whole lotta new gear for that kinda dough.
Yeah, I'd dig it. But economics has given us many terrific alternatives.
