Has anyone played one of these yet? Thoughts? Comments?
I haven't played one yet but I love the looks of those basses. How much do they cost?
Too much, actually. I saw them going for $2000 on musician's friend. I wonder if they really sound THAT good.
I haven't played one. but I saw reggie Hamilton play with a group called Free flight a few years ago and he is a monster... he wasn't playing on a fender though... when did he get a sig. bass?
Is this considered raising the dead??? last post 2002.
Anyways I play a reggie Jbass and I paid well under a grand for mine brand new bought it from another TB'er. still had protective coating on pguard....it is a really nice bass. Yhea Reggie can play...but every time i have seen him play it is been on a fender.
MF sells them for a little over $800, you must be thinking of something else...
They were selling for $2k in 2002, when that was posted.
There are two Reggie Hamilton sig basses.
And a Custom Artist
The standard goes for about 800 and the custom artist goes for around 2K
Sorry, I didn't even look at the date!! Mea Culpa....
My question is, as I am very interested in one of these, is the custom artist model $1200 better than the standard model? As far as I can tell the main differences are 1 fret, block inlays, and American craftsmanship. I would prefer the standard MIM model, but neck issues and fretwork worry me. By the way, that pickguard on the black custom artist model does not do it for me.
My guess, without playing either bass, is that you could buy the MIM one and any neck repairs/upgrades would cost less than $1200, so sounds like a bonus to me. Seems like a very versatile bass.
PS- Poor Peter Criss, y'gotta love him tho....
