Hiya Buzzers, Oi’ve gots a quest’n for yez. I want to know how many of you have actually bought what you considered your dream bass, and of those, how many wish they’d never met their heroes.
The reason I’m asking is that I’m now in a financial position to buy my dream bass. I dream small (it’s less than $2K CAD all in), but I’m still jittery. Choices, eh? Anyhoo, I’d love to hear about your experiences.
I did it, wasn’t impressed with it and regretted it. I’ve found that the more I pay for something, the more I expect out of it. I’ve gotten the most enjoyment out of the things that are either cheap and play well or something I put together myself. Sometimes you have a certain tone in your head and only the dream bass can fill it
I know, that is the drawback… but to what depth won’t fanboys stoop
That said, if they offered it still in the blue sparkle or b&w checkerboardschemes of old, I’d be all over them. The blue ones are available used, but the current one is actually a more faithful replica of Steve’s (fanboy, see!).
It would, if the Canuckistanian peso wasn’t worth the same as the Hershebian Dong
There’s one thats on there for $1100 USD, plus shipping and insurance from Commiefornia. That puts it at about $1600 CAD, which is the pretax price for it new here. And Justine would add his veg on top of the used bass too. So, it would be pretty much the aame
Well my proper dream bass is the original 80’s white MIJ model that he used on Appetite for Destruction. If I ever come across one then I’m probably going to buy it, but it’s pretty rare, especially in good condition, and especially around these parts.
Fender have recently reissued them (Boxer or something) in some fugly red and green colors, but not in white…
