    Ok, i'm in a tough situation. I need to sell a bass (i won't actually mention the make and model because i don't want to break that new rule) to get cash for a fretless i'm having made. I can't post an ad on here because i don't have the ability to be a supporting member :( I tried selling it on E-bay but being that it's my first time selling anything on there i had no feedback and it didn't sell :crying: . I checked on Bassgear.com and E-mailed the only two people on there with want ads for it but didn't get a response from one and the other had already bought the bass he posted the ad for :bawl: I thought of selling it to bass emporium, but they would have to steal it from me to make money...so now what? Seems like i'm screwed. Does anyone have any advice?

    If you posted your own "For Sale" ad on bassgear.com, you could have people coming to you for your gear, as opposed to the other way around.

    I can't post it again because i'd be in the hole over 20 bucks to e-bay and that'd be sucking away much needed money. Instead I think i'm just gonna bite the bullet and shortchange comcast on my cable bill so i can get a supporting membership. I'd rather not waste this bass on evil-bay anyway. I'd much rather make a TB'er happy with it than some random guy.

    Send the link anyway, I can give some helpful advice.

    Also, eBay usually doesn't charge for relisting if your item doesn't sell.
