  7. I just had to email this poor sap and give him some advice.

    How much are the ebay charges on $9000? Got to be at least $100. Did you see the $2500 amp and cab he has or the $200 bear? What a nut!!:rolleyes:

    i paid $450 for the same bass around '75 - i guess i shouldve bought a dozen and saved them- id be set!!!
     
  10. Yeah, and what about that stupid name of his. Who has "Mike" for a middle name anyway? It just doesn't flow. I mean really, say his name fast. There's just something wrong with it.

    :p

  11. Some loser took the time to actually post a bogus ad and use a stupid name and paid the ad fees.

    And tell me if I'm wrong, but I don't remember Lake playing Rickenbacker at the ELP era...
     
  14. OK so I was bored and tried a fake listing for 9000. The fees were only $3.30, I thought it would be more?! I didn't post it though.
