    Ha! This is actually a pretty old thing to do. I've been seeing it on listings for at least several years now.

    I agree with jmattbassplaya. Other TB'ers have posted different For Sale items from that seller before. Same girl.

    There was a guy who used to sell cables or something on evilbay, and he had a woman in a T-shirt torn to reveal a lot of cleavage and the absence of a brassiere. I guess that's why I'm not sure if it was cables or something else he was selling.

    I dont think that girl is teen-aged. Then again, I guess you never know these days.

    Does she come with the mixer then? She's in all the pictures and it doesn't say she's not included anywhere.

    That strategy was used when the owner of the MOTHMAN bass tried to untie himself from the instrument's spell. TO NO AVAIL.

    Definitely. I remember almost hooking up with a random girl I met at a party around a year ago. I'm glad I asked her age or else I would have been in deep crap because she honestly looked to be around my age but it turned out she was only 17 :eek: I think there was a Chris Rock sketch about something like this.

    The Mothman bass builder used to frequent this forum to read some funny discussion about the Mothman, but then stopped after he read some less than pleasant comments directed toward his niece.

    That was the Mothman builders niece?

    Who would pose their niece in her underwear like that?

    The Mothman builder, apparently, but hopefully no one else here....

    I'm sure it's not like he forced her. I imagine she offered to help. Maybe wanted to be a model. Sometimes a model gets their start with projects like this.

    Yeah, that's pretty awkward in my book.

    Actually, I read that a long time ago, so I may be mistaken but I know it was some type of relation to him. It was either his niece or maybe his sister-in-law.

    Not to hijack the thread but this happened to me a few years back. I met a girl at a house party. We talked, got to know each other, and eventually I asked her back to my place. I was 28 btw. So I put a movie on and we're watching....we start foolin' around and move to the bedroom.
    At one point she stops and say's she needs to tell me something that she should have told me before anything happened.
    SHe then proceeded to tell me she was 14.

    :eek::eek::bawl::atoz::eek::eek::eek::eek:

    I threw her to the floor, screamed at her to get out...lost my mind honestly.
    She laughed and said she was kidding. I demanded ID. Saw her DL and another picture ID. She was actually 18 but thought it would be funny to scare me.
    I was not amused.

    I would pay to see the look on your face when she told you that :D

    It was one of sheer terror I'm sure. Especially considering I was in the military at the time.

    He has been in my Favorite Sellers list for years.
    He changes up models every month or so.
    Some are better then others. This one is about mid pack.

    Who said forced? I just find it odd that a guy would post a picture of his niece looking like that online for others to see.

    A sister-in-law would be a much different story.
