So much brass and gold. It's nice to see that his family and friends approve of this.

Didn't Aria release a sig a few years ago for Cliff?

<Runs to do a quick google search>

Yep, they sure did.

IIRC that was a "tribute." This is a signature. And therefore, shinier.

Yes, but the Tribute model had an ebony fretboard and this one has a rosewood fretboard. On that point alone, I'd take the Tribute. And given that the Tribute sold for about US$3,000.00, I wonder what kind of nosebleed price they'll stick on this one?

I've heard 2400, no telling what it'll actually go for though

Seems a decent bass by the specs. You'll probably have to pay ridiculous amounts for it because of Burton's name on it though. Normally that bass would be about 1000$? Still, it's better than the John Entwistle signatures that Dean started making a few years back...

Looks like a decent solid bass. BUt not to keen on the price tag.

RRP is £3999, which is $6,329.74. Maybe slightly less in the US since most states pay less tax.

CHRIST, I think it's cheaper to go to a luthier and make the same bass. >_>

Gold is not a useful metal.

I'm assuming this is only aimed at the kind of Metallica tribute bands that have the cash to buy such junk. Think the Bootleg Beatles.

Its shiny. It conducts electricity and it's resistant to corrosion. But more importantly, it's shiny.

That said that price is ridiculous when you can just get an old used Aria for like 1/6 of the cost.

That is ugly and a ridculous amount of money for what you get. I would not consider it a sig bass, Cliff has been dead for years. he had nothing to do with this bass at all. This would be a tribute aswell.

Goodness, Aria must really be struggling. That price is just stupid. Jeez, the body is alder for goodness sake. It appears to be about a $300 bass to me. They can keep it.

I thought that would be my bass until I saw the pricetag.

There are plenty of replacement parts around. It's probably possible to adapt a regular Aria to look like one for 3 or 400.
