So who snagged the $860 4-digit Standard bass?

Recommended Posts

Damn. That was a good deal. Damn. I would love that, but I am not really a bassist, except for when I record....but I want it anyway.

Me too, but I know why I didn't by it. Nothing is free, especially smiles.

That sure made a good deal go to a frown, quickly

I'm sorry to see it go for so cheap, but I'm glad that Smiley didn't get to rip anyone off.

Well he asks a high dollar for everything, then all of a sudden he throws some "Chum" in the water. Smell fishy, I don't like the guy and wouldn't touch anything he has FS. EVER

I don't know the seller's history. Just got the sense of "this is not the bass I am looking for."

I'm with you guys on the seller and his rep. But not everyone is as enlightened as this group is. So why do you think it went so cheap? I would think that being on ebay in an auction format would have brought a higher price. Is there something obvious I'm missing? Maybe the required overnight shipping which will probably add 3 bills to the price. But even then, it seems low. His e-bay feedback profile looks good, so that shouldn't have turned potential buyers off. Maybe just bad timing.

My opinion:  bad time of year for many, as discretionary income is funnelling into the holidays... and I can't help but think about the fact that this one is sorta spec'd out like a Blitz (same head too) - without the benefit (IMO) of a P pickup.  I've used J/J configs to good effect, but I do know folks that avoid them.

Really cool bass - no doubt there - but when you can get something visually and functionally similar in a $800-1k Blitz, Im not too suprised about the sale price.  Not sure the 4-digit rarity factor alone would resonate with most folks outside of this place.

That was just about what it was bought for when it first showed up hanging at a dealer around five or six years ago, I think.

I think its "looking like a Blitz" was the big downside.

Most people would think it was a Blitz that someone was trying to hawk as a Standard and pull a fast one.

Funny, I tried to buy that bass a couple times. Didn't see it was relisted cheap.
