    Check the shipping charge...
  4. Once in a local music store I seen an SX QMT fretless Jazz with gold hardware. They had priced $250 used, and not even in great condion. I tried to explain that these are only $150 new, but they just got mad.

    says 44.78, but i live 30 min from ft. lauderdale so maybe it is a lot more for someone on the otherside of the US

    Weird. I used USPS to guestimate, the most I come up with for Parcel Post is $32.33. Wonder why it's coming up with a figure of $130 for shipping to my neck of the woods...

    Yeah it says $130 s/h for California. Maybe he's throwing a 50lb lead weight and shipping it in a fridge box.

    I'm guessing a hefty "handling charge" :eek: GFI
  9. The fool would be the person who bought it at that price, not the seller...

    $87 to ship to NY...

    I know a lot of people scam on shipping with eBay, but that's just insane! I don't even think my double bass cost that much to ship!

    He's insane. Rondo only charges like $25 to ship their basses anywhere in the US. So with a case maybe add $10 to it. That would be $35 from East to West Coast, less from South to North.

    I see that a lot on ebay.

    I saw a jazz SX going for 350 the other day, granted he put a lot of work into it but that dosnt warrant 200 more.

    You can bring a bass out of the depths with upgrades but you have to remember that the bass started in the depths and the resale value should reflect so.

    Shipping is $130.24 to Mesa, Arizona. :confused: Bidding has ended for the item though. Looks like he ended the auction early.
