    Yeah, whats up with that? Is it special?
     
  3. It's not actually that high, that's just the price you have to pay for him to close the auction and send it to you right away.

    But theres also a reserve... It says "studio amp," which makes it better than other identical amps.
     
  5. But the reserve might be like 200 bucks, you don't know how high it is.
     
  6. Are you trying to tell me he's not trying to pull a fast one? :eyebrow:
     
  7. Yeah he is. I'd love to be him if someone actually does that though.
     
  8. He says he paid $2000 for it....so is he the screwer, or the screwee? :)

    If he paid $2k he's a bigger fool than anyone who'd pay $900 for a $150 pawn shop special. But that's part of the deal at Ebay: you put the thing up for at least four times what it's worth hoping that someone offers half that, and you still end up getting at least twice what you should have.

    I don't think the guy selling it was Canadian. Says hes in Cali... Damn, hes making the rest of us Californians look bad. :p
     
  13. Did he fall for that infomercial that shows you how to make a million bucks on e-bay???? Regardless, he's clueless.

    The prices are in $Can, though. It's still the suxxors.

    I understand how it reads wrong (Year Mfg./Purchased) but I think he means "the year it was manufactured and purchased was the year 2000 AD". But at $900 BIN, you'd think it had originally cost $2,000! Sheesh!

    Strange observation: He lists two phone numbers. One is indeed most likely that Topanga, CA # (818 area code). The other primary "P" number is a Las Vegas, NV area code (702). What the heck?

    Then again, it seems like one of those brick & mortar / pawnshop type stores going the eBay route, not knowing a d@mn thing about what their selling. List price? OKAY!

    Lots of times people set really high buy it now prices to gaurentee they get all the money they need for the item. Lots of people think the buy it now and reserve prices are usually set the same. But then it doesn't make since becuase after the reserve it met it becomes cheaper to just buy the thing. That said that's beyond ridiculously high, it's too high.
