Older is better here. If Kebo has to explain, you wouldn't understand.

Lotsa money! Being that it's only lived with flat wounds someone will probably snag it.

For that price, I'd want a meet and greet with the lady herself, plus an autographed copy of that photo.

Then it's almost worth it. Something tells me that she's a story that needs a tellin'.

Wow, that's just down the road a piece from me. I'd love to take a ride just to check it out. My first "real" bass was a brand new '70 Tele (I still have the neck on a replacement body) so I have an inbred affinity to those early P's, though I've never actually tried one. Even if only half of that tale were true, checking out one of these in this condition would be a real treat anyway.

I play Powerball in the Tri-State area (NY-NJ-CONN) with a bunch of people from work....ya just never know, and one day....

I might be in a similar picture...... [smilie=music-smiley-005.gif]

Believe it or not, she is still gigging, but this bass was getting to be a little too much for her to handle.


So they did a trade for this "custom bass" that was worth "way more" that that old one [smilie=grinning-smiley-044.gif] [smilie=bs.gif]
