  4. Well, engineers here in Silicon Valley have stock option money and sometimes no idea what a bass guitar costs.

    I wanted to think it was a typo and meant $170, too. But, it's in the heading AND the ad body!
     
  6. But guys... he "will include to this price, an amplifier speaker Peavey to be attached to the bass Guitar for a powerful sound."

    That powerful sound is what the extra $1000.00 goes to!

    I really, truly love both of my Milestone IIs. I consider it to be one of those best-kept-secret sort of bass models. Still, I'm pretty sure I paid less than $300 for the two of them. I certainly wouldn't pay more than $200 for one.

  9. Indeed. And in the body of the ad, it's complete with a dollar sign and decimal point - $1700.00.

    Yeah. Good bass, but no way is that its market value!

    C'mon guys, read the ad copy. This is a "sacrifice." ;)

    I hope he meant 1700 PESOS which translates to about $130 USD. LOL
     
  13. So who's going to write this person and tell them the bass is only worth $170? :) Bet it's some guys girlfriend that's selling it considering the name.

    You know, because it's that ridiculous, I really hope he gets it.
