How come nobody bid this Curbow for 1299? I was going to but...

  1. This is a nice Curbow, for the look of it. I'm just wondering why no one bid on it, I was going to use an escrow for it but the guy said it took too long, well, such is life and now nobody bid on it.

    If anybody is interested and contacted the guy, tell us what you think.

    Thanks

    As much as peer pressure isn't a factor in my purchases, Barney-colored basses are pretty low on my list. I recently had a Barney-colored Elrick and the color just bugged me. I sent it packing.

    I'm looking for a US Curbow... just not a purple one;)
     
  3. I've never seen a Barney Colored Elrick, do you still have a pic?

    Yeah the Curbow is kind of garrish when I think of it.

    Sure, I'll attach one. The original pic is still posted on Electric City Music's website. It looked red on there.

    The headstock is closer to the actual color, a grape jelly color.

    Imagine my surprise when it arrived. Red was pushing it (for me)... when I saw it for the first time I was actually sad;)

    They had one just about like this one for $800, I think it was, and no one bid on it either.

    Looks aren't everything. They blow a Thunderbird out of the water tonewise, and for heavy rock, every other 4 string ever made too IMHO.
