    Nice! But $121 shipping? Still a fair deal, considering what a new one costs I guess.

    Congrats! Rics are great.

    yup. got gouged on shipping. don't care :)

    $1050 shipped for The Bass (note the capitalization)? I'm happy. Could have been $50 for the bass and $1000 for shipping, I'd have still pulled the trigger. If he wants to skate a few bucks worth of ebay fees, I'm cool with that.

    :)

    Be careful though, it comes with 'Manuel' and we all know that you can't trust those Puerto Ricans. :)

    Congrats on the bass and welcome to the Ric club.

    Bass price: A+
    Shipping price: F-

    I know you said you don't care because the overall price is good, but that's still bullsh*t on the seller's part to charge that much. Insurance for the first $100 of item value is free, and each additional $100 of insurance costs either 40 or 50 cents. Even at 50 cents, the insurance would only cost an extra $4.50. I shipped a guitar from Ohio to Florida a few weeks ago and including insurance it cost $21, and he's charging $100 more than that.

    It's obviously still a good deal, but if the Buy It Now wasn't used and it got bid up into the $1200-1500 range that shipping charge would be a big downer.

    He has the bass for 4 years and sells it basically for the same he paid for it...

    I was going to point out the same thing. That would explain the shipping - packing a (presumably) live human into the box will surely cost a lot more.
