    I cant say their are many things i regret not buying but this one has got me disappointed :bawl: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=4713&item=7335521776&rd=1 Unfortunetly the internet connection in the library was at an all time slow running speed so i could not successfully win the bid as was my intention.If anyone ever sees one of these in this color up for sale anywhere please let me know.

    The winning bidder is a newbie, and 0 feedback, maybe he wont really pay, id email teh seller just incase, and tell him you'd pay whatever the winning bid was if all else fails.

    This is what the seller said

    re:Green Hofner-I checked my Ebay and it's marked a guy from Spain has already sent payment-that's odd because I never invoiced him and he has no idea of shipping costs-I emailed him yesterday and have not received a reply-if nothing happens by Saturday,we'll do something-I'll let you know either way-thank's Jack


    Their is still hope! :hyper:
     
  5. Good luck bro , thats a beautiful bass.

    There are so many non paying dufus bidders on ebay I bet you have a good chance of getting it. Good luck, it looks nice.
     
  7. Hope you get it, Major. Maybe you'll have to jettison one of your Sadowskys to make room for the new bass. I, of course, would be willing to help you out with that. ;)

    :D

    In all seriousness, good luck - that thing is perdy sweet.

  12. Sorta on topic - hit me hard if this sucks, lads

    I bid on some CD's tonight, first time on eBay. I'm a decent person with only securement of these items in my mind.

    Any tips for a newbie eBay'er?

    Well, everybody has to get started somewhere.

    I would email the seller on the first shot and say you are new.
    Then sign up fo PayPal. Bid on some small items you want.
    Pay for them immediately with Paypal, and be sure to request
    feedback. Once you get to 5 or 10 transactions, you will be fine.

    Good luck Peter formerly Southpaw.
