    Looks like it to me.
     
  3. Yeah, that's the bass (kinda hard to mistake it). Look suspicious though...

    "left behind from my stepdad. I don't really know much about guitars" :eyebrow:

    Oh, it's definitely suspicious. I'm sure it's a scam.

    Good eye, Jauqo! I noticed there are a few other high-end rarities on Ebay right now from 0-feedback sellers (probably really all one individual scammer with a plan). People, don't believe the hype!
     
  6. Yeah, it must be:

    "My stepdad past away recently so just trying to rid of somethings to pay for funeral costs."

    And the guy who was selling it here was logged on about an hour ago, so I highly doubt he's deceased all of a sudden. :meh:

    I already did (report it to ebay), you have to log in (I think) and then at the bottom of the page with the listing, there's a link to "report this item".

    Good eye Jauqo! Talk about a global village huh?

    Interesting note: the ad says the the item is located in Chicago, not France.

    I'm in Chicago.


    not only did they post the same pics but they pasted most of the specs as well.I wonder if the Scammer is lurking TB and the other forums that this Bass is posted as being for sale.

    From the ad;
    "Other then please email me with any questions i will try to be as helpfull as i can if you know this guitar will better for you thank you. I will also ship it for free even though is heavy i will pay for the shipping myself. Trying to get rid of it asap so if you are interested in wanting to buy it now please email me"

    Maybe you should e-mail him about buying it now....
