    No question here. Turner's double-neck Conklin retails at over 10 grand.

    Cost my a real nice Acoustic Guitar, which Cost me the chance of playing on MTV unplugged.

    Well that and the fact that they didn't ask.

  8. Hmmm...
    well, my first bass was a Fender '62 jazz reissue. That cost me about $10,000.
    Hong Kong dollars, that is. That's about US$1,280 or so. Definitely not up with the most pricey. I'll drop out of this fight. :p

    I'm reasonably sure I've got the record for cheapest used bass from a music store;$18.95 US for a short neck junker back in about 1967.

    Well, I think it would have to be someone from the UK as we pay more for everything over here, because of the strong pound compared to the Euro. High-end basses are at least twice the price in the UK, compared with the US!! :(

    Actually to be serious, I would like to bet it's one of the DB people - Orchestral players think nothing of paying £50,000 ($75,000)for a Double Bass - and I've heard that Don Higdon has got a few like that!! :eek:
