Cliff Williams P-bass - Auction

Recommended Posts

Anyone looking to pick up one of Cliff Williams' old P-basses - here's your chance:
http://guitar-auctions.co.uk/portfolio-post/lot-35-1958-fender-precision-bass-guitar-made-in-usa/

The main catalogue for the auction is here: http://guitar-auctions.co.uk/catalogue-preview-thursday-16th-march-2017/ and there's some tasty stuff.

I've been to an auction at this place and it was good fun (well, actually a bit boring...), but before bidding make sure you've got your max limit nailed down, and remember that you'll pay an extra 25% in fees on top of the hammer price...

I wonder if this is the bass he used in Live at Donington in 91? Be perfect in my band...if I had a spare few thousands!

OK so why did you send me off looking at a guitar auction site I wasn't previously aware of. Damnit!

I bet no frets on the G and D strings are worn, or any above the 5th fret ROTFL PMSL LOL

I keep promising myself that I'll attend one of these auctions. I love that site.

There's a Hamer Futura up. Ooooh.

Just what I was thinking - it'll be pristine higher up the neck!

That's what a "relicked" instrument should look like! Fender [i]et al[/i] take note.

BTW, how to spell the word relicked? Should it have the k? Without it it should surely be pronounced like "released"? Or Maybe a double c? Relicced? Nah, that looks awful.

I shouldn't worry myself about such things. :P

Some of the other instruments look interesting. Lots of parts builds which should surely beat the estimates. There's a nice parts 50's P there might be worth a punt...

There's enough GAS in the room that one only need light the blue touch paper and wait for the explosion... :D

Maybe should have a Bass Chat meetup at the auction?

Flipping heck there are some decent bits in there - might have a little dabble on a few things next week, time to clear the diary!

Thing is, there's no such word as, "relicked" so the question of its spelling is academic. "Relic" is a noun not a verb. Never has been, never will be (especially now I'm in charge).

For sure - some price labels look attractive. The question is how high they go in the actual bidding process.
