Oh great... I coulda had a '54 P for $11.50. Now you tell me.
I do appreciate y'all's input on this. Checking out now to prep for tonight's gig. First one in a while (since before the hurricane). Going with my non-vintage J this evening.
or they send you to a spoofed ebay page and are trying to get your IP so they can spoof your IP and use it for DDOS attacks...just guessing
I'd guess the idea is to burn as many people as possible before shutting down and setting up a new scam listing.
Funny... 'my' prince claimed he was from Greenland, of all places... same last name, too... probably a distant relative.
I think vintage gear is much overhyped. Why not buy a new fender bass and vintagize it yourself by owning it for 60 years. Same deal and you know where its been and whats been done to it. I about fell over the last time i went in a music store and they had a fender duo sonic in a display case with an over 3000$ asking price!!!!! Loool are the off their nut? I gave one to a friend who gave me my first bass! Pay no mind. If you want a bass vintagized, buy a new one, and drop it off on my driveway (not in the case) come back in an hour with 450$ and i guarentee it will be vintage! Loool
Years ago we had a discussion here about similar listings on eBay - in that instance the seller "sold" the bass numerous times to different people off of eBay. $2,000 x 10 for a bass that never was real to begin with.
Like the saying says..
if it sounds to good to be true , it usually is!
a little common sense goes a long way!
I have all the information about those type of listings. Contact me outside of talkbass and I'll fill you in. Email me at [email protected], be sure to include your Social Security # in the subject line.
Hmmm...I'd have to say...YES this is a scam
I've seen several Rick basses listed that are located in Japan. I heard a while back that the Japanese used to buy vintage or high dollar stuff to copy it for their manufacture, then sell it.
I have never heard of this. Now, the Chinese do so on a regular basis (certain the copying part), but the Japanese? Citation needed for this claim, please.
It's probably a Alibaba seller posting Chinese fakes.
That happened a few years back where several sellers were selling fake Rickenbacker and Fender CS basses doing the same exact thing, the posts all used the same pictures and texts. The only thing different was the sellers.
Don't hit the BIN button unless you want something that resembles a HS shop class escapee.
(Sorry for the following detail) Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't the bird who stopped to eat this seed always seem to come through unscathed and none the worse for wear?
It's probably located in China if you see Japan. Most sellers know that people are less reluctant to buy from Japan or South Korea in Asia.
That being said there are so many red flags on this ad... There's probably a reason you don't see those on Reverb as much...
I saw this a couple of weeks ago. The seller had 14 pages of items. It's just too obvious to be real, but they wouldn't do it if nobody didn't respond. Just ask the Nigerian Prince with the bank transaction scam.
they want someone to message them and complete the sale privately outside of ebay thus avoiding ebay fees.
