Andy Rourke’s Bass on Ebay

Andy Rourke’s Bass on ebay. Used on all Smiths’ albums.

You are bidding on a Yamaha bb2000 bass guitar owned by Ex-Smith Andy Rourke. It was purchased in 1983 and put straight to work on all The Smiths records there-after. The bass has remained in Mr. Rourke’s poccession for twenty years. It’s featured in the gatefold cover of “Hatful Of Hollow”. Mr. Rourke has also used this bass on all of the records since the demise of The Smiths:-The Pretenders, Sinead O’Conner, Badly Drawn Boy and more. The bass has a few dings which were inflicted by Andy Rourke & Johnny Marr when they figured their new guitars looked a little TOO new!! It’s got a thru’ neck and plays great. Plugged in, it instantly has that “Barbarism Begins at Home” twang. It comes in it’s original case with a letter from Mr. Rourke. This is a rare chance to own a well documented slice of Rock n Roll history. Mr Rourke will be willing to personally autograph the instrument itself should the winner so wish. Feel free to request any j-pegs or ask any questions. Happy Bidding

Update: It ended up selling for $5,800.
