    Yeah, Right!!!!!!!!!!
    I would think that if this guy was on the level, He would at least be able to spell "Presley" correctly!
    This looks like a crank at least, If not an all out scam.

    Another reason not to buy an instrument off of Ebay. I think the number of people on this board who have had bad Ebay experiences far outweigh the positive ones.

    If anyone actually bids on that, I will personally make it my lifes mission to find that ignorant soul and eliminate him.
  6. Well, I'm not sure of that (but I could be wrong!). I think you can have a good deal of success if you know what you're doing. I tend to stick to buying things from sellers that have AT LEAST 200 feedbacks, and will investigate any negative comments thoroughly.

    As far as this guy, it doesn't get any more pathetic than this. $50,000.00 for a dblneck bass his FATHER made?? And Elvis 'played one just like it' in a movie?

    If someone can show me that Elvis EVER played a doubleneck bass I'll GIVE them $50,000.00! (*cough* in monopoly money *cough* just in case. ;))
  7. I'll bid on it right now!

    edit: nevermind. You have to give your credit card for bids over $15,000.00. :( I don't wanna get stuck being charged for it!

    I'm gonna email the guy and ask for pics instead.
  8. That guy couldn't come up with better B.S. than that crock? :rolleyes: Boy, that seller couldn't lie their way passed missing homework !

    I think if daddy was a luthier, I'd expect at least some mention of the instrument's technical aspects, who made it, and little history to go with it beyond "Elvis played it in a movie."........yeah, and Napoleon swam in the exact, same, water I swam in at the Atlantic Ocean.

    Jeez, if you're gonna like, at least put a little effort into it!

    are you saying there's a realationship between a person's weight and the quality of their eBay experience?

    Even if people with bad experiences outweigh the people with good experiences like myself, I still think we outnumber them. :D

    Elvis did have a double neck, but it was a Gibson Guitar-Baritone (I think) combo. It may have just been a prop for a picture, but he owned one. I really don't know why I know this.

    I emailed the guy to see if he even has a picture of the "instrument." If he does, i'll post it up here, so we can all get a good laugh.

    What a bunch of BS, we all know that if this guy were legit, he would know JT and at least make a mention this in the description. " For Sale ! John Turner Starter Kit"
