I keep seeing this old Martin Stinger bass on ebay. The price caught my attention but the shipping is $80.00 for standard mail, one state away. I contacted the seller with a respectful note telling him that I see he has relisted it multiple times and the problem with the sale isn't the BIN price but the shipping costs. For shipping to my zip it's about 60.00 too high. I also let him know that ebay would gig him for a percentage of those costs as well. The reply was "it takes a lot of time to pack a guitar properly."
