and I love the way they look.

Dave, last year I almost went to Warmoth and built as close a copy to the original Tele (well, Precision...) bass as I could. the natural finsih with black pickguard. I still remember seeing it in the hands of one of the R&B bands in a photo (Probably in Hit Parader) back in the '60s, and I've never forgotten it.

 

Why didn't I?

 

Well, in spite of my smallish bass collection, I'm not a bass player, and the only real excuse would be for the studio, and I've left the studio. Let my brother, the bass player, who has the studio, build one. (But he's got one of the re-issues...)

 

But instrument lust never leaves us, it just goes into remission sometimes....

those are pretty sweet basses (the pink paisley and blue flower re-issues). i think $500 is a little high, though. as recently as last year, i saw them going for $450 new. unless there is strong demand, i probably wouldn't pay more than $350 for a used one, and i'd have to be very motivated to pay that. i think $300 is a better price.
