    it'll cost me 400 aussie dollars all up with postage, if i get it, and its ends up being some chinese copy of a warwick or something else i'll go totally nuts, dont know if i wanna lose 400 dollars.

    it looks very fraudulent, yeah

    haha i'll stay away from my shoe,
    yeah i know, id pay atleast 3k+ for one of them here in perth.


    i wont get a bad record if i won the thing and dont pay right? i mean ive got a really good reason for feeling like this haha
     

  12. Yes, you DO got a good reason!! I'd be mad if it wasn't as advertised, a Warwick Steamer....:mad:

    Having said that, it seems highly unlikely it's kosha; I dunno about it affecting your feedback, I'm yet to make an Ebay transaction (too scared! my girlfriend's addicted!) ...

    I'm in Melbourne; when I click "Payment Methods" on that page, I get this:

    There are no available payment methods in your country. Please do not bid on this item.

    ...is that different to what you got there in Perth, Oliver? I can't think why Perth would be any different...

    How are you intending to pay him?

    Looks to good, sounds to good....is too good to be true. No offence but I would NEVER buy a bass on Ebay from China.
    All I ever see is scams.....
