  4. And people are bidding on it this time, hope nobody gets ripped off...
     
  5. Why is it that people think they can outsmart/scare us bass playin f00s ?? we are too smart for them...hehe. ~ Tyler
     
  6. I dunno man, he's got a few people bidding on it. When his auction gets taken down, he can contact the bidders, come up with some bull**** reason why the auction was cancelled, and try to negotiate a deal with them outside of ebay. And we can't even warn the poor bastards cause it's a private auction and we don't know who they are.

    Unless eBay informs everyone involved (i.e. the bidders) of what is going on with that auction - anyone know?

    I can't get the file to open. This however, might be the legit one that he stole the pix from.

  15. Nope, the buckeye auction is a different one, and has been up under tha same seller ID a couple of times, as well as being advertised outside of Ebay.

    The bogus auction is for a 5-string Monarch Elite with quilted maple top ebony board, and Lane Poor pickups.

    Mike Zimmerman is correct, it is a different bass.
     
  17. The auction isnt up anymore. guess e-bay smelled out the rat and closed it down.
