    You should have put the exchange rate, since you didn't do the poll in american dollars....

    A pound is a measure or weight, not a monetary unit! j/k

    Long live the slug!

    I can't vote because I don't know the excnange rate but the most I ever spent on a bass is $3055.00 for my sadowsky & second was close to $2800 for my Spector NS-4.
     
  6. The exchange rate (at the moment according to MSN money central) is 1.42 dollars to the pound. So your basses were £2182 and £2000 respectively. Seeing as I am only 15 my max. of £300 seems quite good to me.

    So far, the most I've spent is about £849, which isn't too pitiful for my age (17...or 16... actually ..15 ;) ). but I doubt I'll spend more than that on a bass in the near future, unless I can soak out the cash from my family at Christmas :D.

  8. Yes, parents are a good source of money. Now I'm working on a drum kit. Then I can have all the equipment for a band in my garage. I do actually play the drums to. My parents keep suggesting something called a "JOB", but I'm yet to find out what it is.

  10. You don't know what a job is either? At least I'm not the only one.

    And the most I spent on a bass is a whopping $220... Canadian. So thats gotta be like what... 5 or 6 bucks American? And I didn't even buy it, my mom did, and it was used and it was my first bass... and my only one for that matter.
     
  11. The most I spent on a bass was $1300 after tax and all of that fun stuff for my Warwick.

    The most I ever spent was $750 on a brand new 1976 Gibson Thunderbird RI. Next was $650 for my Epiphone, and the rest come in at under $500.
     
  15. most i spent on a bass.... $300.... most i spent on a guitar... about $2,000 (after tax)
     
  16. fl 1395,- on my EDC705

    that's $ 525 for y'all american ppl :)
     
  17. I paid $562 Canadian ($364US)after tax for my Yamaha RBX765A. That was after the price was cut from $1000($648US) to $600($388US) and after I traded in my Squire Bronco. I think I got a pretty good deal. That's about 256£ for the final price for your poll.

    Well, the most I spent was a whopping 751,026.71 XAF (Communauté Africaine Financière Francs) - the only problem was that I had to go to Mali for the bass. If you're really bored at work, see if you can work out how much I paying in Sterling. ;)
