    Someone had a MusicMan SUB 4 string in mint condition w/ case posted on eBay for $350 + $25 shipping Buy It Now... I sent him (or her) a message to ask about the electronics - active or passive - and before I got the reply, someone scooped it up.

    I'm kicking myself for not buying it and worrying about the electronics later. Damn... Maybe it was some lucky TB'er that now has a new toy.

    Don't sweat it. Go deals come and good deals go. Just wait and another one will pop up.

    A TB'er had a Badass II bridge on ebay for 30 bucks BIN... he filed it to almost my exact string gauge and it was hardly used.

    :( Someone BIN'd it before he sent me a response as to what gauge he used.
  4. You think you're kicking yourself?

    I missed 2 Ibanez ATK's that sold for under $400 Australian on Ebay.

    First rule of the deal....

    There will always be another...
    Must be patient in the waiting, but strike fast when the opportunity presents itself. If you're first, you win. If you're not first...
    There will always be another....

    I make my living negotiating, and IMO this pretty well sums it up.

    I've taken to keeping a lttle "war chest' money in my PayPal account so I don't have to negotiate with the wife every time I see something that requires a fast strike!:p
