  1. Check out this Ebay autcion... "Stingray copy"

    Well, I find it amusing.. Hmmm 102 for a stringray copy.. if only I could find a real one for that price :)

    This one is my personal favorite... :)

    Check this one out :)

    I don't really understand that text at all.. it "plays like a dream" but "It has just been sitting in my closet since I bought it"... It is in perfect condition, except that there is a ding on the bottom side that the old case made, but my new case keeps it in perfect condition.. damn I want a bass case that will refinish my basses :)


    Like I said, I find them amusing :)

    I like the part in the 2nd link where the seller says:

    "IM EVEN GONNA THROW IN AN AWSOME LOUD GORILLA GB-30 BASS GUITAR AMP. THE AMP IS SO LOUD IT WILL BLOW YOUR HOUSE DOWN!!!!"

    "AND BEUTIFUL HAND CRAFTED WOODEN NECK AND STEM THAT JUST FEELS AMAZING"

    Stem? Must be a male PBass...


    :eek:
     
  7. Ok.. about the "fender"-add.. people who write everything in CAPS, must be shot on sight, imho.

    " THE BASS's SOUND IS AMAZING IT SOUNDS LIKE IT WAS JUST BOUGHT YESTERDAY "

    yeah since it's been laying in a closeth for 2 years.. if it didn't sound like new, then something is wrong, erh ? ;)

    " THERE IS EVEN A POUCH THAT IS ATTACHED TO THE BASS THAT YOU CAN PUT YOUR SNACKS IN "

    what ?? put some greasy snacks in my bass-case ? get outta me face, fool ! :mad:

    that's gotta be the shadiest auction i've seen in awhile... he said it starts at 350, but he started it at 250, with zero feedback, no pictures, AND the little sunglasses next to his name... kiss your $250 goodbye :)
     
  10. Hmm what the hell is a stem?

    I didn't realize that SQUIERS were handcrafted :):eek::confused::rolleyes:

    Yeah, they lovingly lay each neck blank in the CNC machine by hand.
     
  12. :D

    . . . and they push the button on the CNC by hand.

    Uhhhh...that's what I look for in a case -- one that feels great. Are you gonna be sleeping in it, or what? :confused:

    Actually, I know a girl whose parents are in the music business and she spent a lot of time in the studio as a kid. She said she used to always sleep in the soft, comfy lining of the cases that were lying around.

    I guess that's kind of irrelevant to this but...
