    Someone just emailed me to tell me my ad made the forum. I'm happy you enjoyed it. I think ads like this get a lot more traffic than just posting "Nice blue bass for cheap".

    I did a similar ad for a guitar I did a nice custom paintjob on and it was sold within 2 hours of posting. The funny thing was the guy asked for a copy of the ad more than he tried the guitar out. Funny.

    I'm hoping to have the bass sold by Friday, so wish me luck.
