What to do !!

  1. Welp. I just finally found another G3 on ebay!

    It's from the states, but if an international bidder wins, the guy will pay shipping, this looks like a friggin' deal if I ever saw one!!! It looks like I'll be able to pay for customs, too, all by myself. :)

    Anyway. The problem. I really wanted my 'dream' bass in a natural finish.. This is black :p.

    I guess I could live with it, becuase it REALLY IS!! a deal.. Wha d'ya guys think?

    Reread the auction. Shipping will be $30.00 to the lower 48 but I will ship this anywhere in the free world at the winners expense.

    That means that YOU pay the shipping charges.
  3. *slaps self*:rolleyes:
    I believe that shipping & customs shouldnt be more than £100 my currency - this I can still afford :D

    What about the bass !!

    Thanks for that tho, embellisher!:D

    Just wait it out, these things are always up there.

  5. Thing is - I haven't seen one available in Europe for a long time...

    But I think I will just wait it out... It'll be worth when I have the coolest and unique bass around, and then I'll be soooooooooo coool! :D

    *head explodes* :p

    Personally Id go with a Ripper, but thats just me.

  7. I've also considered this, after you gave me help advice on your experiences back in a thread a while ago.

    Really, if one pops up, I will be there. :)

    These things can and do turn up in the UK. Get in touch with Music Ground (http://www.musicground.com) - they always have rare and unusual stock in and they offer a "find a guitar" service on their website.

    Alternatively, get in touch with the Bass Centre. Give them you details and ask them to get in touch if they ever get one in.

    I think that when you add shipping, tax and VAT to the eventual price of that bass when the auction finishes, you may well find that's it not such a bargain.
  9. David, I went to thak link, thanks. I input my details, submit - then i get an error - "please give your credit card #, expirey, etc" - yet there are no fields!!! :mad:

    [edit] Just tried the contac messaging, still doesnt work!!! I tried different email, non hotmail, (my isp) and still nothing !

    Gunna give them a call tomorrow...
