    It is kind of a cute situation. Frank couldn't sell it through Bass alone back in October (think it was longer ago than even that) so the price is raised $200 and relisted.

    So... how exactly would you do cash on this bass... send small bills through the mail? Wire them money? Fax?

    The other Warrior on Bassgear can't help (listed at ~$900, NAMM show bass).

    This is a bad market to be stuck with a "special" bass like that:D

    It's going to take the "right" buyer to sell that one. I don't like it... it's too Fenderish for me:D

    For $2650, that right buyer might show up when the Great Pumpkin does!:D

    Is someone actually collecting Warriors? I remember the matched set of (I think) 10 guitars and basses being sold by (I think) Ed Roman... had to buy the entire set.

    They had a gallery opening here in Atlanta last week. They had pieces in there that were priced from 30 to 60k. Don't they realize that people might wanna do something weird like, oh I don't know.....PLAY 'EM?!

    Here's an update:

    FOR SALE: To Whomever mocked the Warrior Ad
    Posted: : 11/19/2001
    Category: Basses
    Condition: Brand New
    Age: Months
    Asking Price: $0

    I wasn't trying to offend anyone by what I said in the add.....
    I didn't use profanity or anything like that
    I was just trying to represent the bass in a way that it should be represented.
    I used words like"TIREKICKERS and "LOWBALLERS"because that actually does describe CERTAIN people
    And it IS a SERIOUS BASS...make no question about it!
    I do not think I was being snobby,and if you think I was being snobby I'm sorry for that
    I did change my add,so I would appericate it if you take down your ad,and I will take down this ad
    You can email me if you like
    Sincerely

    well, if your going to buy high end gear, get something with some resale value. i just sold my fodera through bassgear for a lot more than that warrior. luckily i bought it used so i didnt lose anything on the deal.

  20. Just have to chuckle a little...Frank tried to low-ball me on a Bone fretless bass that I was selling very cheaply. He wasn't a tire kicker in that he really was interested in the bass, but...suffice it to say I sold it to someone else.
