    I already flagged it so it may go down soon. but I emailed the guy selling it and told him that it was clearly a fake. his response? "OH? It looks like everything on the website. You've not seen it in person." what BS.....

    At least he isn't trying to get $8,000 for it! It is likely a good bass for the price even if it is a fake (which it is)

    I just think its funny how he brazenly says how it "looks like everything on the website." I can't help but laugh. I'd email him back and call out all the facts of how its a fake, but I don't feel like getting in a pissing match.

  5. Strange, I think it's the same guy who posted the last one. They were both located in Ukrainian Village.

    I'd ask him why he doesn't just lower the action and then he wouldn't need to mention it in his ad. That thing is even uglier than the real thing(IMO).

    "At this price it's a steal." LOL, yes, for $275 it could indeed be called that, if only it were genuine.

    Just look at the CT website to answer that question. While the upper horn is copied from Carl's style nothing else is remotely close.
