Fish Out of Water 4001 bass

Postby (ram) » Tue Oct 02, 2007 12:43 pm

A while back there was a 4001 painted with the cover art from Fish Out of Water. It was supposed to go up for auction (a charity thing if I recall correctly). I have lost the url for the auction site. Does anyone remember it? Maybe have the link or know what it went for? Just being curious.

I've thought about that VERY SAME thing myself!

I didn't save the link, but here is a picture...

I think it needs a black 4004L truss rod cover.

"I think it needs a black 4004L truss rod cover."

+1 on that!

I have one ... but I'm using it.

Couldn't find anything on if the bass was auctioned or for how much. So I sent them an email. Roger Dean has a nice looking Strat in there.

This is a really old thread- but I now own that bass that was auctioned off, I don’t know how much it sold for but it’s currently on reverb for £6500

There were several of these intended to be made and auctioned off for charity. Unfortunately there was some dispute between Chris and the guy who did the paint and final assembly. I don't recall how many were actually completed properly but a few ended up with oddball paint schemes instead of the "Fish Out of Water" livery.
