I just saw a white standard tb1000 on chicagomusicexchange.com for $4295.00.

That seems utterly ridiculous to me. Is the white finish THAT rare? Or are they simply overstating their sale price?

I think it is a case of exploitation as usual. They are very sought after and no doubt someone will pay that amount for it. Hope they don't though. I don't know about the paint though, shouldn't make a difference really.

Their prices are high because of their clientele. I also imagine they might list things even higher on their site since the U.S. dollar isn't worth shit right now. I own a bass that I could resell for maybe $5,000 - $6,000 in the U.S., and I'd have no problem getting $10,000 U.S. from someone in the UK or Japan since the exchange rate is so much in their favor...

i guess that explains the no reserve TB standard with bidding starting at 2g's.

Well Travis Bean guitars are never gonna get any cheaper...

What do you expect to pay for say, a bass made in 1977 which is one of only 1032 made (and who knows of how many still in existance...)?

It's called "supply and demand"
