    Well sorry, but w/ a starting bid of $14,999 US? :eek: it's a joke.

    think of all the different types of nice basses you could buy for that.

    His pricing philosophy reminds me of the old joke about the little girl selling lemonade:

    man comes up to the stand:
    "how much for a lemonade, young lady?"
    "one million dollars"
    "a million bucks?!? how do you expect to sell lemonade for that price???"
    "but if I could only sell one cup..."
