Ultra-rare one-off 1980s Mosrite Axe Bass which may or may not have been made for Gene Simmons
The eBay seller of this one-off 1980s Mosrite Axe Bass claims that it must be the rarest of the rare amongst Mosrites, but when that company is known for its various one-off guitar creations, such a claim is hard to substantiate. I guess it's more a case of how desirable a particular guitar is, and I'm guessing the seller is assuming that the Gene Simmons/Kiss connections (even if Simmons never even set eyes on the bass - was it made FOR him or just inspired by him?) would make serious Mosrite collectors reach for their chequebooks.

Currently listed on eBay with a Buy It Now price of $25,000.

  1. Might it also have been made for Molly Hatchet's bass player?
