    Weird that they call it a replica then say "This is a once in a lifetime chance to own one of Mark's guitars, because it is not just a replica, it was actually used and played on the upcoming blink-182 release. It should be noted that the guitar can be autographed if the winner so chooses." So it's both a replica and not a replica...?

    It's a replica of one of Mark's historic basses.

    it's a replica of one of his basses, that he ended up using to record? idk, weird.
  6. It was a replica made to auction off but Mark held onto it for awhile and used it for recording. Finally deciding to auction it.

    it’s a pretty spot on replica of what Lettuce looks like today. Dings and all.

    Might be Spider-Man...

    I think this guy is on Instagram who made it, he does really good stuff if it's the guy Im thinking of.

  8. You’re most likely talking about Allan Corona. He pumps out replicas on the side. Same guy who just made Mark is new bass.

    ok, that makes more sense. thanks for clarifying that point. they should have had a bit more backstory in there for us less-cultured fans.

    He started using the original of that bass around the Enema era (right after the album came out), replaced by the hot pink one during the TOYPAJ cycle.
