Carl Thompson bass on ebay

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Fishoutofwater, Oct 28, 2003.


  1. I just came to post about that. The 6 string on there sounds reasonable for the bass, but the 4 string? $700 100? Seems a bit high. I see that it is a bid and that the bass started at 1300, so I assume someone is screwing around.

    The auction might be a scam / the bass might be stolen - I've seen people bid up things like that so that they make sure that no one can win it.

    Also noticed the 6 - nice looking. Reserve not met at around $4k last night.

    I saw the exact same bass on e-bay a few weeks ago for $3,500. It was sold to some guy in the US. The scammer didn't even bother to change the description.

    It is a scam, look under completed items and you will see the actual bass.

    I am and will be the high bidder on the bass until ebay pulls the auction to protect anyone from the scam.

    I have notified ebay, as has the person that bought the bass last week that now owns it.

    New seller, just registed three days ago, zero feedback? If anyone did buy it and got ripped off, it would have been their own fault.

    Good move, Darrin.:cool:
