    Well it looks fishy in that it's apparently not a sadowsky.

    Well not just that Jared, I mean, he mentions Oteil, yet this bass wasn't the one that was made by that luthier for OB... then, he has links to Sadowsky & OB...Umm is that what people call "Name-dropping"? Or is that nearly close?

    I know there's something there...

    Looks like a glorified parts bass with a history that needs to be told, e a c h and e v e r y time you pull out that bass on a gig and someone asks you what kind it is...

    I just saw it as I was passing by.

    Yeah Man, ain't it?
     
  7. A very misleading Ebay title. On that alone I would run from this auction as who knows what else the seller will mislead you on.

    I did foward that to Sadowsky.

    <-- also a snitch

    Reported to Ebay. They'll probably take it down just on that.
