    Poor bass, put away in case and kept in the closet, couldnt get out to play and get some light on its lake placid blue self. Hopes someone buys it for lower price and lets it be what it is, a bass, meant to be played, rather then something to take up closet space. Lol.
     
  6. Thats the buy it now, and no fool would do it (I hope). It'll probably go for 400, which doesn't sound to bad if it actually was cleaned up and comes with the case. OF course, that had better include shipping too.
     
  7. "Each guitar is assembled to the factory specifications with special attention to the setup of the action for maximum playability. Each guitar that I create, I make for my own use and I take pride in workmanship. "


    Is this even actually an Fender instrument?
     
  8. Under "Ebay Feedback" where he's got his reviews in red and blue, the words almost turn 3D if you scroll down and watch them haha. I too am confused about whether it's a Fender or not. It says Fender on the headstock, but he claims to have made the bass? Or are we need supposed to read that far into it? Haha.

    'Next the guitar parts were inspected before they were reassembled" Inspected to see which side was up. What a schmuck!

    I really like the one-piece pickguard/control plate, though. :bassist:

    Perhaps a little pessemistic on my part but when i see too much info in the description, different colored fonts, different sized fonts etc etc I don't bother. Too much info usually means covering up.

    Who's doing the stealing? Not the Buyer.
     
  15. I agree. If something is worth what you are asking you shouldn't need to convince potential buyers. Its not like he's a marketing firm trying to sell some new product. He's just selling a used bass.

    "I installed new CTS 250k pots and rewired the guitar."

    Uh-bupbupbup!

    Not all-original! -$300 in value off the top.

    Well, it says OBO...

    Actually, I've seen a few of these guys' basses. While I wouldn't pay $650 for that particular one, he had some nice P bass relics that went for around $400.

    A really cool one in Fiesta red w/ matching headstock. I think it looked pretty nice...and a refin on a Mexican P would cost more than just buying that one...not bad IMO.
