For auction is an extremely rare 4 string John Entwistle Spyder Bass.  This instrument is one of only 50 made. The serial# is 04SY13335. It is in mint, virtually unplayed condition, all original, with original hardshell case. This Spyder Bass is # 24 0f 50 made in the original lot.The photos speak for themselves. It has flame maple, Vermillion, walnut, ebony, purple heart, Anniversary electronics, etc etc etc...many types of wood. You can see the varied types of wood, etc in the photo of the document in the ad from Alembic. The instrument has German silver Spyder webs. It also has many features and functions that you can research on the internet. The instrument plays excellent, and sounds ABSOLUTLEY TOP-NOTCH (WHICH IT IS). The varainces of tone are unbeleivable. Stand out and be original. Play the Bass the Bass player of the millenium played! Be the big Boomdaddy Dog! The new "Thunderfingers". The instrument comes with it's original Alembic Spyder bass strap, and the red creepy crawly Spyder I added for effect! The instrument has bright red lighted led markers on the upper side of the neck to denote fret markings. I have the four 9 volt batteries removed at the present which light the LED's as I purchased these Basses as investment pieces and did'nt want them to dissintegrate inside the bass. They are (sadly) virtually unplayed. I bought this Bass directly from Alembic through Mica Wickersham who as was a close friend of John Entwistle. Mica and I struck up a telephone friendship as well. Mica saw the Who many times as a youngster, etc. and is the daughter of the owner. She has some great Who stories. I met and hung out with John as well during an Art Show he held here in Indianapolis. It was a pleasure. He was a true english gentleman with a keen sense of humour. Mica literally hand picked these two especially for me. I purchased a 4 string and an 8 string version. The flame maple is unmatched. The quality of construction is unmatched. Both basses could be purchased if interested. Not sure of what I would price the 8 string at since only 25 were made like it and it has 4 more strings. The price retail now is over $17,000.00. I have although heard that some one has some for sale for $9500.00-$9900.00 but they are likely not nearly 10 years old or from the original limited edition. Bid with confidence. I have a 100% approval rating. I will ship overseas as well. The shipping cost would be whatever UPS charges me to ship to your area of the world. I would appreciate payment in the form of bank certified check as Paypal holds money now for 21 days and I do not agree with their new policy. But, use paypal if you must. Pls call if you have any questions or would like more pics. I have 30 or so more pics but for some weird reason EBAY was acting funky this morning and would only accept these 12. I would certainly allow a 24 hour approval period. Return shipping cost would be the purchaser's responsibility. Thank you ! Call anytime. Brian 317 771 9294
