    I don't know about you guys but.....would you want your girlfriend/wife to be posing in a g string and bra just to sell a bass? No offense but I wouldn't want her to be eyecandy for every tom, dick & harry to stare at!

    That said.....isn't this against ebays rules?

    Hey the guy might feel good that people are ogeling over his girlfriend :)

    Not sure what Ebay's rules are on that. I'm pretty sure that as long as there isn't any nudity they're ok with it. I'd rather see a picture that cleary shows the item for sale AND a scantily clad girl rather than a really fuzzy dark lousy picture like some auctions have :)
     
  5. well, consider the options. it could be.. the secretary or the babysitter. :eek:

  9. Now what if the pic was for your eyes only? What could be better than a picture of your significant other AND your bass? :p

    Well maybe the guy is just proud of his wife? but seeing those pics gave me the same idea for when I finally decide to sell one of mine. though convincing my wife to do the same as that guy's wife is gonna be hard. She is rather camera shy. :D

    Maybe his wife volunteered so she can get the money from the sale.

    I think I said it in the last thread that was started about an auction like this, and I'll say it again...

    Dean gets away with advertising their guitars with hot girls holding them, why can't this guy? :)

    Look at all the additional publicity he's getting. Pretty smart, IMO.

    Keep it clean and respectful, gang... there were come questionable comments in the last thread.

    What part of "respectful" did you not get?
