    That is a great looking bass!

    Would I pay 10k for it... not if I was Bill Gates!
  6. 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. :crying: But back in those days, a 4001 went for 400-500. So everthing's relative, I guess. Too much $$$ for my blood.
  7. 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.

    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.

    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.
