that was spinal tap...

spinal tap

the description says it all:

Here it is, the actual bass guitar that Harry Shearer played in the movie "This is Spinal Tap". This is not a copy or a reproduction, this is the one and only bass of it's kind in the world. If you've seen the movie then you have seen Harry Shearer (a.k.a. Derek Smalls) playing this bass in many scenes. This bass comes with alot of extras. First of all you not only get the "Spinal Tap" bass but it also comes signed by Harry Shearer. Harry signed the bass in two places, he signed it "Harry Shearer" and dated it in one section and signed it "Rock On! Derek Smalls" in the second section. You also receive the actual case that the bass came in plus the original set of strings that that were played during the movie. Also included is a certificate of authenticity from the manufacturer B.C.Rich. stating the bass was infact played by Harry shearer in the movie "This is Spinal Tap". The certificate is also signed by the owner of B.C.Rich guitars Bernie Rico. Jr. (A photo of Mr. Rico signing the certificate is available apon request). The bass is a White B.C.Rich "Eagle" model. It has rainbow reflective graphics that Harry told me were put on by the art department prior to filming. Also included to the winning bidder are the three pictures of Harry holding and signing your bass. The bass has been stored in a climate controlled area in it's original case since the film was completed. It is in the same condition as when I purchased it except for typical ageing which includes some discoloration of the reflective tape. There is also some reflective tape missing and some dents and dings on the bass, but this wear is what Harry put on the bass during the filming of "This is Spinal Tap" which makes this item even more desireable. This very rare collectable bass guitar is ONE OF A KIND and for the serious collector. The Hard Rock Cafe wants this bass for their rock and roll collection but I am offering it to the public first. Harry asked that 10% of the winning bid we receive be donated to the Multiple Sclerosis Society. The donation will be made after recieving the payment. Buyer to pay all shipping costs. International buyers to pay actual shipping costs. Don't let this truly once in a lifetime opportunity pass you by. E-mail me if you have any questions. GOOD LUCK!

actually, the description doesn't include the best part - the opening bid on this bass was...*drum roll*...$38,000. which isn't a lot, considering that this is a once in a lifetime opportunity, right? (surprisingly, this bass didn't receive any bids)

1978 Bunker bass


from the ebay item description:

"...This This Bass is in good condition, and has an extremely "BALLSY" tone, which is one of the characteristics that made Bunker Basses so sought after!..."

thanks TW. come to think of it though, i've never sought after one of these myself. maybe there's wrong with us? and i think that phrase ('ballsy tone') is just so stupid. hmm - i wonder who's idea that was - to put that big chrome musical note at the end of the neck? now that's some classy shit!

hey, wouldn't it be cool if i made a...


here's one sent to us by friends-of-bunnybass mike zimmerman and mark barron:

this bass is called an 'ace bass'. get it? see - 'ace bass', and the bass is shaped like a spade... ace-of-spades, see? ...yah, i know.
