    I was trying to bid on this bass which was at $305.00 with less than 5 minutes left to go. I had a bid in for $501 but I guess I missed the timing because someone else snagged it for $450 at the auction end. I am new to buying basses but thought that this was a SLAMMING deal for that bass. Was just wondering if someone on here was the lucky buyer...

    I was following that auction but did not bid. It was a steal, for sure.

    there's a sweet program that can "snipe" a last second Ebay bid for you right before the auction goes up...it's pretty cool...

    Nice bass, I've never played one but always liked Michael Anthony's sound on his Yamahas.

    Those sniping programs can only step up incrementally (pennies or dollars at a time) and therefore would not have worked with this auction the price on this auction went up in $50 chunks in the last 10 seconds. That is one of the reasons many still do it the "old fashion" way of manually sniping the bids. I had it lined up, but just missed. My fault. I will keep looking.
