    It will be featured in the next issue of "The Robb Report". Jens sent me a boat load of pics but I will only post a few for my fellow TBers :ninja:

    These are the features:

    Floral Pattern Fingerboard Inlay made of massive 24Carat Gold
    Every single Inlay-Leaf is decorated with a Black Diamond (set in Platinum)
    The Bridge, the Tuner Buttons and the Knobs are handcast in massive Gold
    2 flawles Brillant-Cut Diamonds (3,3ct) are placed on top of the 2 Knobs
    Tiny green Brillant-Cut Diamonds serve as Knob Position Marks
    The handshaped Body is made of a one piece Highest Figured Quilted Maple
    The Nut is made of at least 10000 years old Mammoth Ivory

    Not for playin but for stayin:smug:

    I know there will prolly be those of us with something negative to say about an instrument of this caliber and price but I look @ Jens as a modern day Picasso of bass luthiers. Im priviledge to not only own 2 of his instruments but to know him personally. Njoy guys....

    ... did you say Mammoth ivory? That's what I thought.

    I've heard complaints about using parts from endangered species... but, hey ... this ones already dropped off the list.

    ...about 700 SX basses
    ...about 100 MIA Fenders
    ...about 70 Valentis
    ...about 40 Sadowskys or Wals

    I'm speechless. That's truly a work of art.

    Is it odd that I find $100K almost a low price for a bass like this one? I mean, the work, craftsmanship, and materials that went into this. Of course, I'd never spend that kind of money on a bass. But when you see vintage Fenders going for what they go for, and put them against somthing of this caliber...

    Amazing. I didn't know Trump played bass.

    ...I gotta see more pics of this thing.

    Is pure Gold good for tone? I would imagine it would be much too soft to use as a bridge.
  13. I didn't know Elizabeth Taylor played bass...

    two comments:

    2) why?

    For that price it should come with someone to play it for you. Man is that some amazing piece of bass building.
  16. Is it just me or is the neck made of gold also? It sure look like it in that second picture.
  17. I'll take 3 thanks Jens.

    assumin it is plated like that one he made that was completely gold plated, i doubt that you'd make the whole neck from gold, though i thought the same
