    Screw it. I just bought 3 @ $13.49. Sounds like good fretwork practice that I can feel happy giving away afterwards.

    Update: My order has shipped. Should be here by April 1st. My investment is currently sitting at $56 CDN.

    I'm not sure if you'll actually get anything out of that - the delivery date is over a month out on the long end. On the flip side, if you do get a bass for that price, you could start a "my strings cost more than my bass" club.

    Under 7 lbs?? I'm almost tempted. If they had an 8 pound 5er for like 25 or 30 bucks I would get one just for curiosity...

    As as been mentioned, it costs more than that to ship! Seller feedback shows lots of positive notes from recent $35 guitar sales... and most recently one glaring complaint about fraud. Hard to see how any fraudster can benefit from this, really? Or for that matter, any legitimate trader, unless they are looking for karma-points (exposure-bux??) :wacky:

    From the description on the ebay listing:

    To create faultless bass effect, you can not lack a professional bass guitar during guitar performance. This Exquisite Burning Fire Style Electric Bass Guitar Blue is just the one we are glad to recommend to you. Though it looks quite similar to the ordinary guitar, it actually is quite different from that one when it comes to function. Compared with guitar, it features thicker strings and larger string tension. And it is located on low-pitch site, which makes it perfect in sending out wonderful bass effect. Moreover, this bass guitar adopts superb wood and synthetic material, so you can trustingly take it back home for entertaining!
    Comfortable hand feeling, stylish outlook, stable performance and melodious sound

    That's interesting, but even with that the price is crazy. I had to pay state tax so the cost was a little over $16.00.

    I know this was a joke, but it seriously made me think before clicking go.

    Was gonna do it, but it seems kinda pointless... and I think there IS some possible risk involved.

    Sure, they're losing money on each one, but they make up for it with volume. :)

    I actually ordered one, but I may let it sit a couple of weeks before opening. :) People are still getting iPhones shipped from China and all kinds of other stuff. I did read a few articles before ordering though.

    Wow. I just got one of the $64 Ibanez/Yamaha copies from eBay a few days ago and thought that was super cheap. I'm very interested in hearing reviews on these. :eek:
