These are truely special instruments
I bought the Road Worn 50's Precision bass about 2 yrs ago and just had to breakdown and get on of these beauties too. I currently have 15 basses in my collection, some of which I've had for years, since I've been playing since 1980. I honestly thought these were just sales tools, not that good for the money, especially since I have had the Custom Shop models in my hands before. They were honestly very excellent, but not worth the big bucks you have to give for them.
These are something very special though, they are worth more than you pay for them, they look, play and feel so very good, you just can't say they aren't a good deal. The only reason I don't give them the final half a star, is I reserve that for a real player's axe from that era, and they just aren't around anymore. Get one of these, you won't be disappointed.
