    Could we get a working link?
    EDIT: nvm i got it, maybe the one u saw at GC was slightly different, bolt on vs neck through or wendge, etc.
  3. Maybe they are in a bidding war. That price on that bass is way over retail and there doesn't appear to be anything special about it.

    Good point, i just noticed it says reserve met, not "reserve not met" . I think that is the case: someone just wants it really badly, or someone is realyl stupid. I feel bad for whoever wins that.
  5. No, that bass on ebay is a bolt-on model with an ovangkol neck. Similar models at Bass Central are $2099 list.

  6. whoever wins that........I feel sorry for them....
  7. :eek:
    Wow! It's gone over $2200! Some people just shouldn't be allowed to practice capitalism...

    Whoever the seller is is walking away a VERY happy man! I almost never see this kind of thing on ebay.

    i feel bad for the guy who buys it.... but look at it from the other side, the one whos selling it is making good money
