    Who takes pictures for their auction in the back seat of their car? :rolleyes:

    I'm convinced people like this are only putting up auctions because they got in trouble with their significant others, and they don't really want to sell it. That's why they use crappy pics, and lame descriptions.

    "See, honey? I tried to sell it, but no one wants it." :D

    ""It is very HOT, if you know the term.""

    :eek: Whaitaminute! Doesn't the term "HOT" refer to stolen goods? Or is it just my crappy English? :eyebrow:

    "You wanna buy some Tung bass?"
    "You don't want to sell me a Tung Bass...you want to go home and rethink your life."

    "I...don't want to sell you a Tung Bass...I want to go home and rethink my life."

    I honestly think what s/he meant by "hot" was in reference to the output levels, and was simply phrased particularly badly. It's a 7-day auction with 2 left - if it were truly stolen, I think eBay would have pulled the auction buy now.

    ...but damn, if it were a 5-string and I wasn't in the midst of moving and requiring funds I'd be on that like JM on bad FOH sound. :D

    Yeah, I noticed that too...


    I'd love to have one, but too many things about this auction are screaming: "Run away!!!"

    That bass is far too attractive to look like anyone Paris Hilton has been caught associating with.

    Plus it's not making out with another six string Tung bass.
