  1. Its beautiful, but is going to be way too expensive. I would much prefer buy an actual vintage tele bass for the price. Still a beautiful color.

  2. for that price u could have a custom bass made or get a true vintage bass.

  3. a guy I know could make me at least 5 of these for that price.

  4. 6200 bucks? For that price I buy a Yamaha BB2025X and four TC electronic combos.

  5. Ok so 240 000 000/ 6 200 = 38710 Dusty Hill basses to save Fender, stay tuned to the next Fenderthon release to save the company!

  6. This bass actually costs $4800, $6200 is just the Factory markup. I would know. Just played one today at a local fender custom shop dealer, and is was a pretty killer bass.

  7. very nice but way to expensive!, would love one though.

  8. If I’m going to spend that much money on a Bass, it will be an Alembic.
