    ...i hope you are reading this.

    looking at bass parts on ebay and i stumble across this body. it is advertised as a fender, but it obviously is a squier vm jazz body. i messaged the seller to let them know in case they didnt and this is what happened.

    and finally, the item in question.

    you could always just not buy it and everything will be ok
  3. :rollno:sigh: a d-bag Jersey resident
  4. Captain obvious strikes.

    Doesn't change the fact that the seller sent one douchetastic response.
  5. She sounds lovely doesn't she? The item description is a bit misleading. Low feedback count and she recently got an interesting neg feedback over doing something kinda shady. Ignore it...she will reap what she sows.

    Geeze that's pretty pathetic, usually an outburst of sorts would mean possible insecurity, guess they don't want their scam to be caught, I dunno, lol.

    That's why I never try to help these doosh bags. You get the last laugh because she sounds like a bitter, hate-filled, miserable excuse for a human being and having to be HER is much worse revenge than anything you could say or do.

    So, did you buy it? :rolleyes:
  9. A fool and his money are soon parted, and only a fool would pay the asking price for what's offered. $180 might be a more reasonable asking price, and at $160, it's actually a fair price, for what is pictured.

    Not that it matters, but isn't the body maple, not ash? That bass goes for cheap these days. Shes full of s***t.

    I wonder what line of work her 40 years of "biss" experience is in? Hope it's not anger management counseling!
  15. According to Fender's site, yes it is maple.

    I was just looking on Ebay and a came across a Strat. The title is "Fender Stratocaster", but when you click on the description the guy states clearly that he believes it's a Squier/MIJ copy combo. I thought of emailing, asking, "if you know it's not a Fender, why funnel buyers with a keyword that pretends it is?"

    Yeah...too bad fees are paid go right into their pocket, not upgrading their nearly non-existent customer service.

    True that...
    Yet they cancel my auctions when I say "like new" and once because they said my shipping charge was too high! I don't get them...
