    that's possible. But the bass is gorgeous. Is this not a limited edition like they are saying? I haven't gotten out much but I haven't seen another one quite like it.

    Serial number is blurred. Avoid like the plague.

    I'm in the skeptical camp. If it really belonged to someone that famous, why not just say it? Wouldn't that increase the value? Who sells guitars and deliberately keeps secrets in order to lose money?

    That description reads like a whole boatload of unsubstantiated hyperbole. If it is such a phenomenal bass, how come the "famous" musician didn't play the thing? Why is it in "double mint" condition?

    I also think it's ugly. Not the least bit interested.

    Bass "looks" authentic enough, but the story feels bogus

    Blurring the serial number is very common in bass sales. That's not a red flag. Everything else might be, but not that.

    And the price? I mean, originally (last year) they sold for around $1,500.00 US

    does it play itself and cure cancer?

    If you post a whole bunch of stuff about how your dog is the best dog ever, then....no. The dog didn't do nothing wrong, as far as I know. But if it's ugly, I reserve the right to call it ugly.....while I pet it. ;-)

    Agreed. But at least now I know I like the looks of those 60th anniversary pbasses. Didn't know they existed... :)

    If it isn't documented and proven that it belonged to the 'legend' then it makes a good story but doesn't increase the value.
