    Check out his bassgear.com ad, although I suspect a talkbass connection: ;D

    WANTED: OLP Sting Rays
    Posted: : 11/27/2001
    Category: Basses
    Condition: Excellent
    Age: Months
    Asking Price: $500

    Will pay $500 for OLP Sting Rays in Excellent+ condition. I can't get enough of these, and they are selling like hotcakes for me in my eBay business. If your OLP is in less than excellent, I can pay, but probably not more than $450 or so. As we all know, these basses are officially licensed by Ernie Ball Music Man. I sell these to people all the time for at least $700, sometimes $780. Buyers are breaking down my door to get their hands on these. I am a little overwhelmed, but I must keep my business going. So please email me right away if you have an OLP to sell me. Please do not include pictures, especially ones that clearly show the OLP name on the headstock.

  2. What a crock! You can buy them new for like $250 US. I guess he has a good business, but I bet he sells them as real EBs.

    I see a satified customer has posted an ad above his. I hope that doesn't get out of hand. Bassgear's a good site.

    Color me confused. Whole thing a joke?
     
  5. If that is not currently illegal (.. fraud comes to mind, as he is infact selling them as Ernie Ball/Musicman, and only mentioning "Officiall licenced" in passing..) it sure as hell should be. Hmm I should go out and buy 3 or 4 of them from MF and go make myself a cool grand.... What a jerk.:rolleyes::mad::mad:

    Email his university...I would like to see this ahole kicked out of school....heheh better yet let us blackmail him!!!!!....if we ever see Matt Markoff for president I'm going to piss myself....
     
  13. Who does he think he is? Who the in the world would want to pay $400 for an OLP Stingray? Doesn't he know about Talk Bass?

    :rolleyes:
     
  14. If you notice, the auction that ol' Matthew linked to had a bidder at $400, but the auction was cancelled. Some people were speculating that the $400 bidder was a shill, as his/her bidding patterns show no other bass related items. Not sure...maybe you could email the seller to ask!
