It's too dear for a players bass, and it's limited as a collector bass, so good luck to him. It's like that 61 P on TM, been routed, then filled in, then refinished, but the guy wants a collector price for what is just a player. Some people just don't get it.

Could the colour be Burgundy Mist? I've seen similar colour Fenders on eBay from around same year

That's what I thought, holy hell what a dreamer, either he is extremely uninformed that this is a wooden copy worth probably around $350-$400 or he accidentally put one digit too many on his prices lol. I would have thought even a Genuine one may not reach 2k .

By the way its nice to see my Washburn Status I was selling was the first post on this long lived thread !

the arse has fallen out of the market if you couldn't get $2000 for a lefty V Steinberger I reckon.

along with Pre-Gibson Tobias and possibly now early Modulus they should be good investments

I think the Arse HAS fallen out of the market a bit at the mo, in New Zealand anyway, probably could get more than 2k for the lefty l2 V but it would sit on Trademe for weeks.Youre starting to get MIM Jazz Basses for well under 500 now, I think people are sitting tight.
