I've actually played this bass a couple of times when I've been over in Amsterdam in the past year. The last time was just in March. Peter's been trying to sell it for €800 in the shop, and it's been there a loooonnnnngggg time. I'm not much of a jazz bass guy but it seems pretty clean and original. I just don't think it's €800 good. Peter - owner of DePlug - is one of the nicest guys I've ever met in my life. A true sweetheart. But..... he treats his shop like more of a museum than a retail operation. He doesn't react well to "offers" and prices are very high. I've been in there dozens of times over the years and I've never actually seen anyone buy anything. He was kind enough to loan us a guitar for a fly in show in March and we had to call him several times on his cell phone to get him to open the shop - at 3pm on a Thursday - so we could return the loaner. I've walked over to the shop on a number of occasions to find other people looking in the windows and the place locked up during normal business hours.

I see he's lowered the price to €750 but it should still be a little lower in my humble opinion.

Sometimes I think, maybe I'm lucky I'm left handed. If I could play any bass I wanted, my collection would REALLY be out of control.
