    Spotted on Fenders Instagram from summer NAMM.

    Not sure what is unique about it other than the mirror pickguard that would cost you $50 to slap on a black MIM or MIA p bass, but I thought it was cool.

    Don't recall a tailpiece like that on Lynott's P-bass.

    I am sad they do this after he is dead...He deserved it when he was alive...but it was 35 odd years ago

    That's pretty much most of Fenders' sig models.

    Been there and had the photo taken.
    I think it's been moved, due to vandalism.

    Good to know.

    Have you been up Temple to see the Rory Gallagher Corner?

  12. Seems you could build your own for a crapload less than CS prices.

    I just saw a pre-order on Reverb for $12,500 for this hunk of wood and metal. You gotta have a lot more dollars than sense to pay that much for a Custom Shop bass.

    And they made 60 of them!
    Other than that, it's almost as nice as the Squier Chris Aiken bass![​IMG]

    Hi Lammchop93 :)

    It makes you sing better! :D

    may the bass be with you

  16. All basses are hunks of wood and metal (and plastic), so... where does that leave us?

    Value is entirely subjective.

    This is bollocks. I know Fender didn't make signature models back when Philo was on the go but a posthumous signature model?
    I wonder what the Lynott Estate has to say about this or were they consulted?

    Either way, this issue, now, reeks of carpet-bagging. $12K? And the Roger Waters one is, what, a Grand?

    Well, Phil was a better bass player than Roger, plus Roger's sig model isn't even that accurate. SPB-3? Black bridge? Black knobs?
    Still, this Lynott signature model looks fairly plain and too expensive for what it actually is.

    Maybe the othere 10K is for the stenciled flight-case?
