Post Ebay auction
Hi to you all,

I am going to auction off a bass that I played in Racer X back in the 80's. Some of you might remember...it was an Ibanez bass built for me that said Racer X all over it. It is light blue with red Racer X. I smashed it up at a show so it is not playable at the moment.

It is at Eric's guitar in Van Nuys where Eric will start fixing it up. The headstock was partially ripped off and there is a crack down the middle of the bass. All the work will be top notch and it will play as well as it ever did. If it is worth more to any fan smashed up, then I will halt the work. I just have no idea. I will check the responses to this post and go from there.

Also, I will have all the members sign it with a black Sharpie either way.

The proceeds of this auction will go to the MPDFoundation for which I am a spokesperson.

Thanks to you all,

Juan aka John aka Johnny Alderete

Hey Juan, I'm Jual. Not really :P

I am not sure what would make it more valuable. After hurricane katrina, down here at the hard rock, somebody (i am not saying any names) got Kurt cobain's guitar and john lennon's jacket. I... er.. that person was told it was more valuable since it was playable instead of his, more common, smashed up ones... So... I dont know!

Also, Nikki Sixx' bass is one of the smotthest basses ever! :mrgreen:

I think what really makes it valuable is the signatures of all 4 Racer X's members.

It does not really matter either it's playable or not.. At least to me. lol

Playable!!!!!

I don't think many people would find much use in a pile of wood on the floor but something hung on the wall that can reproduce sound the way it used to when you used it in the 80's would just be infinitely better.

As a RX fan, smashed would WIN

However... for "Normal" people (normal meaning Non RX Fans)... Playable will obviously win....


Good luck!

Awesome! Best of luck with the auction 8) I don't know how much money I can save so I can't compete with other bidders.

I think it'll be worth more if it's playable :wink:

Yep, it's worth more playable, i think. Speaking as a Racer X fan i think it doesn't matter.

Anyways, good luck with the auction :).

WIshing luck on selling for a good price, I can't bid on it admittedly, but I hope it goes for a lot. I think it would go for a bit more if it was playable.

I wish I could bid on that. Love that old bass tone.

An instrument with "historic value" is cool, but I wouldn't buy a couple of smashed up pieces of wood, I prefer it playabe. I think most people would, even if they wouldn't play it

I dunno.

I reckon making it playable would add some modern stuff to it and remove this "authentic" thing to it. But being able to play it would rock...

though having something authentic is really cool... like in a museum.

I like it either way.

I'd go for playable. Let's hope that it sells for a lot of money.

Good luck Juan!

I would like it left "as Is" but having it signed is what makes it valuable to me

Good luck with the auction and I hope you are doing well
