    Man, this guy is selling a bass that lists for $1095 with a BIN of $5599??? What kind of moron is he?

    The top of the line USA NS5/XL lists for $4000, he's got it priced above that!!!

    To top it off, he doesn't even have any pictures of the actual bass. What an idiot. I hope no poor fool bids on it.

    I think he does, but not alot. There's one picture of the bass in its case.

    But yeah, that is ridiculous.
     
  3. Hmm, there's two pictures of the supposed actual bass on there now. A Korean Spector for $5599? Where's my checkbook? :p hehe. Jeez, even if that was in Canadian funds it would still be over three times what that bass is worth.:rolleyes:

    I won't believe this 'til Nino bids on it. And if he does, I'm sending him a specimen cup :D

    Peace,

  12. what, free gig bag? in that case, count me in.
     
  13. Hey, if it were Yen I'd buy it :D $55 for a bass, count me in!!! :D
     
  14. I wonder what Nino has to say about this...
     
  15. Whaaaa!!!!!!!I think that guy meant $559, no? Yeah right, a Spector for 6 grand? Let's is, for that price, there are Fodera Imperial Elite, Ken Lawrence, F-Bass, Ken Smith, or Dingwalls? Maybe they are not even $6000. Good luck to that guy.


    Could somebody have the sensibility to send that guy and email and tell him about this thread? He'll pull it out from Ebay, I 'm sure.

    Maybe it's a bass Fieldy almost bought.

    Or maybe it's a typo;)

    Maybe he did it on purpose so he doesn't really have to sell it.

    "No, honey, really. I'll sell the bass--but, no one seems interested on Ebay <snicker, snicker>"
