    Probably a loose connection somewhere, most likely jack.

    Yeah, that's cheap. Did you see the strings? They're rusty, along with the input issue and the general drab/neglected appearance, there's probably more problems than he's letting on. Easy fixes for someone I guess and worth a gamble.

    I'll see. I just sent a message. I'm kind of leery that the location is "United States".

    I hadn't noticed the location, nice catch. Scammer?

    I doubt it. The guy just wrote me back and said the Bongo's gone. A scammer would be asking me to cash a foriegn cashier's check by now.

    Most likely just a guy who hasn't sold a huge amount of stuff on CL before.
  9. If he keeps pricing like this in the future he'll sell a lot more on cl... Someone got lucky. Hope we'll see a thread from the new owner on here soon to see what's up with the bass and repair progress
