I'm sure it didn't cost him anything, since I believe he was sponsored by Yamaha at the time.

It depends on the deal. Endorsees (is that a real word?) don't always get free stuff and I doubt Myung was at that kind of profile level where he could regularly get free gear especially expensive custom shop stuff. I doubt he even gets his Ernie Ball stuff for free. Still, it's possible the Yamaha could've been a gift from the company.

You're not a real collector unless you've got the actual instruments used on the albums.  Just sayin'.   :biggrin:

Ack!!! So tempted... one of those impulse buys Iím trying to teach myself NOT to act on these days, lol. And Iíve been really disciplined these past couple of years. :)

No way at the Buy It Now price of $15K though...

Not that anyone here is expressing any doubt, but just in case, I can confirm that that is in fact one of JM's bass guitars, even though it is being sold by a third party vendor (the band auctioned it off quite some time ago).

Any idea how much it sold for at the original auction?
