    ...for $3192, I'd get a used Alleva Coppolo or new Sadowsky NYC.

    I sold one of the originals for $200 about ten years ago and totally thought that I ripped the dude off. Actually come to think of it I still do... Guess someone out there wants them. doubt they'll sell many at that price though.

    whoa whoa whoa. i'm not sure how i feel about this, although i think i still prefer the original grabber in terms of looks. not digging the new headstock.
     
  12. Effing cool.

    Thumbs down on the price though.

    I want a Les Paul bass still though...

    Nice! Thanks Bongomania!

    I have always loved the look of the grabber. I think in a large part because it has one of the few non-fender variation headstocks that I like. Rics are another bass that just look right.

    That black on black is very sexy. But I don't think I like it enough to shell out $3,000US.

    Interesting, but $3,192 MSRP? I suppose for a limited run, they're going for the collector market, depending on how limited we're talking here.

    Looks cool, I hate that three point bridge though I would just get a Hipshot replacement.

    That price is just ridiculous, we are talking the price of testicles here.
     
  17. aw thats soo cool looking... really digging the headstock, too bad they don't do a blonde finish tho.

    the retail price you pay in the stores is always less than the MSRP crap they put there... but still... you'd be looking at what $2200-2600 ??? are they crazy?

    What I don't understand is why the price is so high, it is such a simple instrument but they have to charge boutique prices for it?
    Eh Gibson have always been a bit screwy.

    I'd love for gibson to make some RD's again. Then for a local shop to stock them. That way I might have a chance of playing one. I love the looks of the RD.
