    I was expecting something such as a Warwick for $200.

    This though, is just as shocking. Why would anyone pay $1k for a Squier is beyond me.

    He clearly looked up "precision bass" on something like MF, found the MIA price and listed accordingly... He's either in for a big letdown, or he's just trying to hustle someone who doesn't know what they're buying.
     
  6. Somebody should email him and offer $100 and see what he says. :D

  13. sometimes fishing pays off......my ex wanted to get me an amp for a christmas present and had no idea what to expect so some opportunist got about 200. too much for a used peavey tko.....telling her that she got hosed would have spoiled it for her so i let it go......in the cl- kijiji world a guy can keep re-listing for free until he gets what he wants

    This made me chuckle. It should be our war cry... Think about it, we could be like internet vigilanties, defending the rights of the poor, down troden and innocent, protecting young children from sour deals on music gear, boosting the business of honest men, and social networking with hot groupie chicks!

    Nah, though I live close, it's not mine. I'm not a fender kinda guy, I don't mind the tone and I respect the history but it's just not me.
