Ok, I want to pose this question to my TB community and am curious of the varying opinions. I have a person that I became friends with and has a regional following in and around his town and he really is one of the nicest guy's you would ever meet. Now, here is where we have had some interesting talks. He has a hobby of taking cheaper basses (the most popular being Squier Deluxe active jazz basses and Squier affinity basses) doing a repaint and throwing various preamps and pups in and sells them under his "bass line name" for at least $200 up to $400 more than what you could buy a new one for at any box store and sometimes even more than that. I am not really sure how many he actually sales, but I personally would never buy one and especially at that price. So, would you pay more than retail value for a modded bass?
