NBD!! Original Attitude

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by FloridaSam, Dec 7, 2013.

  1. Amazingly, last night I was at a buddy's house watching the new Sheehan, MacAlpine, Portnoy DVD. I was secretly lusting for Billy's bass the whole performance. I decided to hit some pawn shops and Thrift Stores today. Struck out at all until the last stop before calling it a day.

    I walked in and saw this behind the counter. I was praying I could afford it. It was tagged at $600.00 and begged for the "good guy" deal as I've bought a lot of stuff there. He said $275.00 and Merry Xmas.

    Now, it's far from mint and has a few scars...personally a mint Sheehan bass looks weird to me. They need to look a bit abused.

    From what I understand only 150 in this color were made. I can't wait for band rehearsal tonight!!

    That's about the best deal I've ever heard of.

    $600 was a good deal. You stole it. Congrats!
