    It seems rather low. Also, I don't get the RHCP thing. That and the really brief description make me suspicious.

    Indeed it is, if it's real.

    I don't really understand some people. Is writing three more sentences painful to them?
  7. Maybe the price is so low because of the chili peppers thing. :bag:

    I cant seem to recall any Chili Peppers songs being done on a fretless, much less a JD.

    Theyre probably lying about the chili peppers part.. unless they can prove it(ask them to!). However the starting price says nothing b/c it always goes up a lot.
  10. Hmm...I'd really like to see Flea funk it out with that bass.....has he ever played even a _fretted_ sixer??? :rolleyes:

    Looks like a scam.

    A JD bass like that is worth around $4000.

    I've asked the seller for any additional pictures he has of the bass. Despite the sparse description and bad pic the seller does have 100% feedback and is offering Paypal as payment, so it is easy enough to pay by credit card and dispute the charge if you wind up with no bass.

    Yeah, I thought the same thing myself ....... Granted, his feedback is a little old, but still very clean. And the PayPal thing always gives me more assurance that I won't get scammed too bad.

    6 months ago I would have been all over this bass, but between a serious decision to hold up on bass purchases, coupled with my absolute joyful love of my FBB, I have to stay away. If it really is for real, someone is gonna end up with a smoking hot bass ........ I hope it is a TBer .... :cool:

    maybe he was just alone in a studio listening to the perppers while he was playing that bass.

    That bass is worth 4560€ new out of jerzys store...

    Maybe he has a RHCP cover band named the "Red hot CHILLY peppers", and they have been in the studio before. Heh, If it is legit, why would he not just type a little bit more and eliminate suspicion? Why wouldn't he just do that anyways? Seems shady.
