    I admit it. I am a Craigslist troll. I frequently buy and flip things to support my bass habit.

    This time of year, scammers are around. This guy... is selling a $49 Crescent bass for $150$. I called him to "negotiate" on the price... showed him the Amazon ad where the sell they bass... WITH AN AMP for $99 and he wouldn't budge...

    What's even funnier is if you check the Amazon ad, they list the original price of the bass at $299... but the original price of the kit with the bass and amp is $109!!!

    What have you seen?

    Here's the $49 bass...

    Here's the starter kit for $99

    he did you a favor, I have seen several of the Crescent basses in person (in pawn shops) and I would not buy them for $49 :cool:

    And I LOVE inexpensive basses.

    Apparently the amp is so bad it subtracts $190 of value. Impressive.

  5. This guy on kijiji in Saskatchewan (Canada) wants $1000 for a Rickenbacker copy, like the kind that they sell on Aliexpress for $300...its not even one of the "Logical" branded ones that go through set up in Canada (those sell new for around $600-700). This is so clearly NOT a "lawsuit" bass, and even if it was, $1000 would still be overpriced. Clearly this guy is delusional.

    I laughed so hard when he sent me an email saying his price that I almost fell over! :roflmao:

    You must have banged some reason into his head. I just clicked the link and saw he dropped price to $75.

    The Chicago craigslist is loaded with stuff where the asking price is the same or higher than new at GC. I think there are just some guys out there that want to think their stuff is worth more than it is.
