    Looks like he just picked it up too.. hmmm..
  3. man, and that happens to be my favorite Ritter too

    I don't let myself have Ritter Gas cause there's no way I will ever pay that much for a bass

    but if I ever had a custom made, it'd be based on that
  4. Gas.....

    Yeah, no feedback plus pics from the website make me think that even if I had the cash, I'd not be bidding.

    Seems shady, but you never know. I'd risk it with someone elses money though.

    Thats really freakin nice...
  11. outside the country, yes that is very suspicious

    if you find the pic of it on Ritter's site, it tells you the Serial number, so you could check with who the "real" one went to pretty easily

    if this one isn't real, that is

  14. Excuse my ignorance, but I seem to understand that since it is from outside of the country (US) therefore it is suspicious:confused: .

    Why? And I know that there are some scammers who come from the far east, but I'm thinking that it is silly to categorize anyone selling from a non US state as a scammer.

    If you are skeptical about bidding for fear that it is a scam, don't be, I met with Ryan( the seller) today at Greektown casino in Detroit, he is actually the house bassist for one of the casinos in Windsor. Super nice guy, great bassist and the bass is in Mint condition. I had a chance to play it as we were talking about trading for my Fodera Imperial.

    I think people should try to investigate and maybe contact the seller before acusing them of being a fraud. This kind of "cry wolf" mentality always turns into a witchhunt on these sites. Some people join Ebay only to sell something and everyone had zero feedback when they first joined.
