  1. meh our own ibanezcollector can do better!
  2. Too expensive...
  3. I tried one in NYC over the winter and didn't like the feel (artificial) or the sound (blah, at least through the Phil Jones Bass I was plugged into).
  4. Having seen some of fenders god awful relicing work I honestly think Ibanezcollector should send 'em a little resumé!
  5. Yeah. He's what ya do. Go to Warmoth, get them to paint the body in that color, and send it to Ibanezcollector for a more realistic and convincing relic job. save $2,500
  6. Or get him to do the whole thing for ya! His finishes look pretty awesome :)

    for $2,002,870.00 i can buy 530 of them, with FREE SHIPPING! lol
    hell for 3779 he should show up, deliver the bass to me and give me some lessons
  8. I may not have been invited but, I just don't get it. I wonder how much extra the rusty bridge saddles cost?

    Crikey! If I was Pino I'd fix my bass first THEN get Fender to make a replica... Jeesh!

    there's a couple of threads about this - when they were released and from people who've owned them.

    fantastic looking and sounding bass, but yeah, pretty expensive. I'd just go for the '59 custom shop P and save the difference...

    Ive played a few. Not worth the price to me at all. Id be just as happy with a standard american p.

    I been everywhere, man...
    None. At all.
    The relic job on this particular example really does look amateurish at best, but I've seen other Pino basses at other dealers that appear a little more "authentic" or "believeable", for lack of a better term. Usually, Fender does a better job than this. IMO, Ibanezcollector's work is much better than what's seen here.

    I've been a longtime Pino fan for 20 years, but I'd never buy this bass - it's simply too overpriced for what you're getting.

    For that price, I want the bass plus one night each of the John Mayer and Who gigs...
