  2. HAHAHAHAHA, weeeeee :hyper: You know what P.T. Barnum said about suckers right?
  3. What are you talking bro! This is an excellent deal!

    Forget Sadowsky's or Alleva Coppolo's, this is the shiz-nik!
  4. Well you have to give them credit for that epic sales pitch.

    People are nuts. My used Sadowsky NYC was about 1/2 that price!

    Warmoth's buyer's-remorse doesn't actually set in until you go to sell the bass, hence the jacked up price. I've seen many fall victim to it and it's a shame because there are some really decent basses out there with great parts. But parts alone do not make the bass and the average Joe typically doesn't have the experience required to turn parts into a bass like a Valenti.

    And I hate when people try to sell you on the parts they pick for the bass. Just give me the facts with a brief description and avoid cliche` phrases at all costs.

    Marketing at it's best. Maybe that guy should run for elected office.

    It looks like the Craigslister saw one of Certainbass's auctions and said "well yee-haw, I kin do that too!"
