One of the late Who bassist's personal instruments has come up for sale on ebay. The following extract is from the eBay listing by the seller 8thstreetmusic:
A piece of Rock n' Roll history - from John Entwistle's personal collection the Warwick "Pink Buzzard" in a red metallic finish (circa 1985). Gorgeous Bass guitar with signed custom hardshell case and an Entwistle spider doodle. The bass plays and looks great, the Illuminated side dots added a little extra flare and visibility while on stage.Currently listed on eBay with a Buy It Now price of US $32,500.
This bass has a huge crack down the middle and back. As the lore goes, while on tour in the mid 90's, Roger Daltry asked Entwistle to turn his bass down. In true rock and roll fashion, Entwistle threw the bass at Daltry and said, "you play the F***in' thing", as the bass hit the ground it cracked right down the middle.
