    Consider him reported...

    I also chatted with Musician's Friend, and they still have that bass (serial # 010106).

    EDIT: I didn't refresh, so I didn't see the earlier post about being reported. But, I reported him to EBay as well since he responded to me in an email with fake pics.

    The guy sent me the same pics so I emailed him back and asked him why he was trying to pass off photos and the serial number of a new bass for sale on musiciansfriend as his own. I also said the ad has been reported to Ebay. Screw him.......well spotted.
