    OK so I won this auction. It is kind of a steal seeing how the brand was mispelled but the bidding activity makes me super suspicious.

    It's a nice pulcinella lightwave (mispelled without the l... pucinella)

    Looks like one helluva bass. The Seller's feedback looks pretty good. The three star thing is certainly odd, but as long as you are happy with the price and the Seller delivers, that's all that matters, isn't it?

    That bass has been through TB before. I thought about picking it up, myself, but was going to have the Lightwave System adapted to their 13-pin output. I spoke with Matt Pulcinella about it, and he said it had a very robust, upright-type sound to it, but was going to be the last (and I think only) Lightwave he ever did, simply because of the extra work required in installation.

    Wow. 12 lbs. That's a heavy MPG. The fake watch and broken bass comments in the feedback would make me nervous also. At least it's not a situation where your maximum was bid up near the end. You entered the 811.78 winning bid, right? If anything, I'd be pissed that it looks like you sniped at the end of the auction. ;)
