    I'm sorry, but that bass is freakin' awesome! LED eyes???!! How can you beat that? And I love how he says "extremely rare," but doesn't say "one-of-a-kind." Does that mean there are other Gumby basses out there? Maybe there are matching Pokey models...
  4. well, it probably IS woth the money. i mean, the soft case is in MINT CONDITION!!!!!
    i also thought it was funny that it's custom made, but "rare"; not one-of-a-kind.
  5. Whoever made that...ahm....öh..."thingy" must have been a very, very, I mean VERY desperate man... and whoever made that bass should never make a bass EVER again! That is the worst eBay thing right after the awful BUD bass. (You know, the leftover piece of wood with a BUD sticker on it...) :rolleyes:

    that is class!! light up eyes!!! that rules!!! i want one!!! only if it wasnt so
  9. Oh dear God..... *shakes head in shame*
  10. You guys are the biggest bunch of whiners and elitsts I've ever see! Just because it's not made by Fender or Gibson doesn't mean you have to immediately tear it apart!

    Someone obviously has a true love of Gumby, and was kind enough to extoll this in the form of a bass guitar which he obviously put hours and hours of labor into! The least you could do is show some graditude!!

    Its GUMBY for Pete's SAKE! GUMBY!!!

    ;) <---wink wink

    If it were priced a lot more reasonable ($100- $200) Id buy it.

    I think it's very cool. Slide the decimal point in the price over one space and it would be hangin' on my wall!!

    Waaaaaaaay too much. Yeah, it should be played and no, there aren't any basses hangin' on my wall. The thing really doesn't look all that comfortable to play though.
  18. I just love people that have never been on ebay that just start an account and put something that they built with a huge price and think it will sell for even more because they own it. Much less those award winning pictures! (or none at all-remember the $9000 bass) Did anyone see his one of a kind Alembic explorer bass?
