    I think this may be the result of a hacked account. The seller has +13 100% positive feedback as both a buyer and a seller.

    Or maybe he decided not to sell it. I've seen that before.

    I guess some people have too much time on their hands. Unlike all of TBers, of course ;)

    I have a friend who owns a couple of those straps. They're crazy looking. They use exotic woods and come from south america if I'm not mistaken. They remind me of those wooden bead seat covers that were all the rage in the late 80's early 90's.
  13. doesn't everybody have a $9,000.00 MIM Fender bass? :D

    I own one of those straps, paid 40$ for it used. They sell new on wholenote.com ......... Actually a very comfortably balanced strap.
  16. This guy was burt! :)
    He surely put too much 00 (two in my mind!!)

    I can buy 20 basses like this with the starting bid.. :p
