    Hello to all,

    I was wondering if anyone knows where can I score a Steve Harris Signature Fender.

    I have never been into Fender Basses, however, I dont know why, but I feel the need, and gas for a REAL P-Bass.
    And since I would love to have a lake placid blue with maple fingerboard, and... one of my biggest influences is Steve Harris, ... I WANT THAT ONE!!

    Gonna strung it with flatwounds, and use it to play old music, like "the who", Led Zeppelin.. all that stuff that was played with P-Basses with flats...
    And of course, to play Iron Maiden covers.

    Any offers, or help searching for one will be greatly apreciated.

    Bump!!

    I found one, but it is around $700
    wich I believe its too much for an $800 list bass, and it is Used.. 4 years old, and a chip in the bottom
     
  3. You may want to consider buying it. Harris sigs are quite rare and only had a production run of a few months.

    Your best bet is to keep an eye on Ebay. Thats where i got mine.

    Interestingly enough...mine too has a tiny chip on the bottom. :meh:

    We use US Dollars here.

    However, I buy all my basses and gear in the U.S. so no problem with that.

    shhh! Dont tell that to the seller!!

    I know they are rare.. but I dont have $700 right now, I made him an offer of $400 + Shipping

    Thats what I got. I could go up to $500, but thats eating almost my whole month Salary!

    A Steve Harris sig now can easily go for 800 in used condition.
