    He can put all the women in the world in the picture and he still won't get a nibble at that starting price.

    What Telecaster bass? :eek:

    That ad is 1000X better than the bass by itself (at the current price).

    Would be better if he just showed the bass. The amateur-porn photography and underage-looking model do nothing though no doubt some cretins will race to pile in their opinions on her in due course.

    Maybe the girl comes with the bass? Ebay becoming a human trafficking site perhaps?

    She asked for it by agreeing to appear in the ad. I have no sympathy for that obviously stupid, average looking girl.

    Using poor quality, amateur photos of a partially clothed, unremarkable looking girl in a run down, cluttered house in a feeble attempt to draw attention to an overpriced guitar you're selling? Really??

    Good God.... all his ebay auctions are like that. There's a photo of him from the neck down holding a guitar part. He's wearing a Canadian Tuxedo...

    That could be the same character, but doubtful.

    The same guy has been doing this for at least 3 years with different (ahem) models displaying their wares.

    Wares.;)

    And believe it or not, this model is a 10 compared to some of the past wares.

    I wouldn't burst into tears. It is possible I would think even less of you as a human being though, which would really require something special on your part.

    Don't worry, I'm quite used to aspergers-riddled hyper-masculine idiots on the internet thinking their opinion is law. I've seen you in all those threads Gibson EB-2 basses are mentioned spouting your opinions where they are not needed.

    Oh, give me time, my Calvinist buddy....:)

    I hate to bear bad news, but this is a message forum. You know, a place where wee lads can discuss things aboot theer basses. 'tis not up t' a bonny lad like you t' decide what opinions are needed.

    I own an EB-2. Do you?
