  2. It's a joke...
    In case you haven't noticed, the page you were viewing is not for real.

    It started out as a parody of an eBay guitar ad, but quickly took on a life of its own. Most of the links do not work, but a few of them do:

    The eBay guitar ad parody
    The "home page" of the seller
    The eBay feedback page for the seller
    Other auctions by the seller

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Some people, of course, just don't get it. Here's an email I received from someone who, apparently, has no sense of humor:

    Are you stupid or something? Only a dumbass would fall for that.
    Fender strats don't have yamaha any where on them. 1950 strats
    don't have rosewood necks, they have maple. That is not a $15,500
    guitar, that is a $130 guitar. If you ain't sure that is a yamaha pacifica
    112. Just thought you might like to knnow how big a f***ing ediot you are.

    Or, maybe he was just playing along with the joke. Yeah, that's gotta be it. Nobody is that stupid.

    Note: This is not intended to poke fun at eBay (which is a fine company that performs a great service). Rather, it is intended to poke fun at sellers who use eBay to rip-off unsuspecting people.
