    i think that's a good ad myself... unlike other ads on the 'bay, you actually want to read it all. :bassist:

    Interesting. Sometimes people are forced to try to sell stuff, for whatever reason (usually a divorce, or some such thing). They typically put outrageous prices on their items, well above the going rate. I wonder what would happen if someone actually bought this bass. Sounds like the seller wouldn't want to ship it, and he might come up with some excuse for why he couldn't complete the transaction. I feel for the guy. I've sold basses I really didn't want to sell, and recently my family "convinced me" that I should downsize my collection, but since their eBay account is the same as mine, there was very little room for maneuvering. :)

    Makes me think of a guy about a year ago whose wife had just divorced him and he wrote a both hilarious and sad ebay ad selling his bass. The pic was of this Husky biker dude with a beard, pony tail, and tattoo's on massive biceps holding the bass while wearing one of his ex-wife's old dresses.

    The guy had all kinds of women responding to this bass ad wanting to go out with him.
  9. to me, it seems like the guys wife made him do an ebay auction, and he did one. however he found somewhat of a loophole.

    Pure genius. I'd buy it in a second if i didn't have a brain. But really, I couldn't stop laughing.
  13. Great ad, but I don't believe the story myself. He's a regular ebay seller; check out his sales history.
  14. I, for one, am pleased beyond words to see a Tokai (an early 80's model at that!) up for auction on ebay and the word "lawsuit" is nowhere to be found.

    British speak for frying pan. You say tomayto I say tomaato.
  16. A sauce pan can also just be a regular pot.

    Oh, those wacky British. Pshh. Scratch plate. Ha!

    If this guy was not wanting to sell this bass, he wouldn't have gone to the trouble of the long, comical description. Simply a short description, high price, etc.

    That story was hillarious! The dress he was wearing was his wifes wedding gown! That's the only thing she left him when she "supposedly" split! LMFAO!...
