Last night my band Circular Soul opened for TSA (a Polish hard rock band) at the Taste of Polonia in Chicago. We played three songs and were well received. It was a fun show. I threw my fretless corvette into the gig bag and walked off stage to the sound booth to thank the guys and talk to an aquaintance who mixed some of our live tracks into a CD in the past. As I stood there, I was approached by an old Polish guy telling me that he has some basses and guitars for sale. I was pretty wary at first by his somewhat pushy sales tactics (I was in the middle of a conversation), but I asked what he had to sell. He said he has a new Warwick Jazzman 5 stringer for $600. I thought to myself, no ****ing way but he pulled out a picture and it was the real deal. I look it up on guitar center today and it is about 3400 US new! I am going to call him up and try it out, but part of me is still skeptical on why anyone in their right mind would sell such an expensive bass for $600.
