    And somebody bid $777 on it ....
     
  2. I don't see what's so funny. It's typical Ebay bad spelling.

    BTW, it'd be really nice to see a picture of the headstock crack... I mean the area behind the nut... :D

    Gee. If it were worth $ 3-4000 I think i'd do the work needed and sell it myself. Is there something wrong with this picture?
     
  4. Bad spelling, bad grammar, broken Engrish...the list goes on, it just struck me funny is all...didn't know if anyone else saw it. I just constantly search for vintage t-bird parts and this gem came up....

    "THIS BASS NEED SOME T.L.C. TO MAKE IT A RIGHT!"

    that's kinda funny

    "BUT IF YOU HANDY WITH GUITARS AND COMPLETE THIS THAN YOU WILL HAVE A BASS THATS WORTH ALOT OF MONEY PLUS A HELL-OF-A BASS!"

    that is really kinda funny. To me anyway.

    See how things lose their oomph? :smug:

    Nevermind. Nothing to see here.
     
  5. What's "Yuck" about a '64 Thunderbird II? There's also a phone number with the correct area code in the ad.

    There are plenty of people with worse spelling and grammar here. :p

    It looks like it's been sitting out on his deck there for a few years! And why wouldn't he invest $20 or so in a set of strings? :rollno:

    Once I saw a handwritten notice on a muscian's call board in a music store. It said; Wanted base player for southern rock band call Jerad at 555-1234. So I called him an the conversation went something like this;
    Me: Hi, I'm calling about the base player position
    Him: Yeah, do you play base?
    Me: Hell Yeah I do
    Him: How long have you been playing?
    Me: Jeez, I've been playing since I was about 4
    Him: Wow, thats a long time
    Me: You're damn right that is
    Him: What kind of bass do you play?
    Me: I think its a third base but its hard to tell
    Him: I don't know them
    Me: Its made by Spaulding
    Him: I don't know them either
    Me: yeah I just whack the **** out of it with a drum stick
    Him: You do what?
    Me: I just set that bad boy up on a stool and whack the **** out of it
    Him: You hit your guitar with a drum stick
    Me: What guitar?
    Him: you hit your bass guitar with a drum stick?
    Me: Hell no, I hit a baseball base with a drum stick, I stoled it off of a baseball diamond
    Him: You don't play the bass?
    Me: I play the B-A-S-E, bass guitar is spelled B-A-S-S with an A-S-S like in a dumbass who doesn't know how to spell bass.
    Him: Go **** Yourself (hangs up the phone)
    I still laugh about that :D

    Yeah I posted it a few months ago on UBP. I'm the same Hammer on it and on ebassist :D
     
  17. Typical? Where, on www.Eyba.com? :p

    we got us some real good sellers here. v:O)

    Seriously tho, like was said...invest 20 bucks in strings and make another 3 grand in profit? You do the math. My money is that thing is nothing more than (not so) pretty kindling by now.
     
  18. That story is hilarious! Man, you're bada$$! :D
