Who can tell us who actually played that bass on that tour, and the rest of the bass’s provenance?
Inquiring minds wanna know, and besides, that would influence its supposed value. I mean to say, I have a pal who owns a 1926 Gibson L-5 guitar, but it’s not the same guitar Mother Maybelle Carter owned for oh so many years and did most of her records with. And needless to say, its not worth near as much money as the Carter L-5, which now resides in a museum in Nashville and last changed hands for over half a million bucks. She bought it in 1928 for $275, or about $4000 in today’s dollars. My pal’s L-5 has a current valuation of only ten or twelve thou.
