    Some guys here could use a few lessons from that guy. It's amazing to see a bass for sale here that the owner wants $4500 for. The pics are grainy. The ad might include a cut and paste from the manufacturer's web site. But overall it doesn't entice me to buy the bass at all. Whereas with a little effort, my wallet has been pried open on multiple occasions.

    That guy needed to make that nice of a ad because that car for $1400 is a terrible deal. That thing is BEAT and it doesnt even list the mileage in the video or ad. Thats more or less a $600-$700 car so he should be stoked he got the full $1400 for it.

    I need to work on my Craigslist ads... Although I have gotten compliments and met people who knew me from Craigslist because usually when I sell a bass or gear I will have pictures of me playing it at a show. I guess my action pics do take a hint from car commercials; somehow footage of driving down a twisty mountain road is more appealing than seeing a car parked in your work parking lot.

    Man, In Oct. I sold a 97 Pathfinder that was in far better shape then that "tour de force". It had 341,141 miles on it, and not a tear in the fine leather seating of the interior. That Maxima was a Freshman, My Pathfinder was a graduate, where was Nissan when I sold my car?:D

    They weren't buying the car. They were buying the effort that went into the ad.

    Nissan - well played.
