Liking the Journeyman Jazz, would be my perfect YOB bass.

Oh well, back to sending the begging letters I guess... :rolleyes:

Those Okoume ones are mighty pretty.

I've been thinking for months about getting a used white Mex and asking Guitar Angel to do me one with Newcastle badge and stripes,
then Fender do this!!!!!!!

Update, Feb 17 probably just the States. UK later no doubt. Found one ad, looks about £950 street price. Bit high for a Mex, despite the extra bits.

Who is taking the orders :lol: :lol:

I did start to build my own one a few years ago, had got everything done (spray painted the stripes on and made a waterslide of the LUFC badge) but managed to drop it one day and ruined it so the whole finish got sanded off and painted orange haha. Have been considering getting one professionally done for a long time and still might do if I can get one of the "2010" model necks for a decent price so it matches the 2010 sig model I have -cough- OCD!

Great player too!

He's great, useless to find out what they sound like though unless you're playing Funk...better than the ones last year where they had overdrive on every bass demo.

Just think they look a bit odd, dated?

I agree. I'd have liked to have seen a range of US Standard natural finish/hand stained variants myself. A little like they did in 2012.

I do however think that the West Ham bass is A stroke of genius.

I want one.

But as I said to my brother (a huge maiden fan) £950+ for an ornament is a bit rich at the minute (although, would double as a mirror)...and then having to explain to non-muso friends that it's nothing to do with football (I don't follow any team or the sport itself).

Sorely tempted though - Steve Harris is possibly the most impressive bass players I've ever heard/seen live.

Andy, look at the transcript of an email I got from Fender, in the Steve Harris thread. Makes the 'Arry even more appealing.
