  2. Haha. that looks like a good one too. Probably even worth the $350. Not $5000 though. I should Buy It Now just to freak him out. :D

    "PLEASE DO NOT BID ON THIS ITEM!!!!!!!
    I HAVE SET THE RESERVE AT RIDICULOUS NUMBERS TO PREVENT ANYONE FROM TRYIG TO BUY THIS BASS.
    I CANNOT FIGURE OUT HOW TO DELETE A LISTING ON EBAY ( BRAIN SURGERY SEEMS LESS COMPLECATED)"

    Too true.

    Hey, Dave. How's it going?

    FYI, the Triad is still doing fine. I'm gigging with it today. :bassist:

    A pallet in the hands of a master can be a beautiful thing:

  8. hold on a second... has everyone bought a bass from dave?
    by the way, i love the forklift on the guitar.
     
  9. Holy #%$*! You'd better cancel that dude. He might change his mind about selling it and force you to honor your bid! :D

    Why did the guy even place the auction if he had no intention of selling the bass?
     
  14. He was probably just itching to start another patented talkbass.com wishbass thread. It looks like he succeeded. :D

    Eh, he probably just changed his mind or sold it outside the auction. You can probably change the reserve and buy it now price and description but deleting an auction must have been more obscure.

    Actually, yes. It was such a smash that they came out with a limited edition series of palet guitars. What was originally done as a joke ended up being a profitable business venture. Joe Zon, are you listening?
