I wonder what they'll be charging for it.

This is becoming a real easy way to charge list price.

This is a nice one but at the end of the day it’s still a 4003. Let’s do something really unique with something beyond cosmetics. At least the Noir has an ebony board. Something like some of those employee one offs would grab my interest!

It also says toaster and vintage TRC. I wonder if that means a rear painted plexi one?

Classic look. I would love that with an aluminium tail (please have a go at bringing an aluminium cast tail/bridge back for a trial run and see if it sells).

The short scale basses were cool, but a special order. If you have the bucks, you may be able to get a special order. ... being famous and polite also helps. :)
There is no reason to ever be bored.

...why yes, I suppose I do have a double bound guitar fetish...

That looks an awful lot like my December '72 refin:

Last night I caught wind that Wildwood had these in stock. On the way to work this morning I stopped by in person and bought one. 8AM and they opened the shop for me. Great customer service...and the bass? In the morning sun it pretty much sold itself. What a way to start the day.

Could you post a pic? I love that finish. I think it should be a standard to go along with fireglo.

I agree. I pulled the trigger yesterday and have this one coming in on Saturday. The guy I talked to said they only made 15 of them in this run.
