    His feedback rating scares me more than his story.

    If my bass was signed by a ghost, 1. I would pee my pants and run around screeming for a while, then 2. proceed to find ghost and kick his ass for writing on my instrument!
     
  8. Initials appear to be "CK" and the bass, to me, seems to be some sort of Dean/Ibanez/Peavey Korean bass or something of that sort...

    ...I think the story is BS, and if I had a credit card, and was 18, I would buy it and fill you guys in on the full story... I really hope someone around here buys it, and tells us what happens, kinda interesting though.

    Hey Robert Pratola....STEP AWAY FROM THE CRACK PIPE!!

    These whacky eBay sellers get more creative by the day. I wonder what kind of spin he'll put on the old GE refrigerator?

    I wonder how many people will get scared off by that story.

    I wished I lived in the US so I could buy this thing...

    This reminds me about the time someone sold a 'haunted' rubber duck for $200 after it had "bitten his son" :eyebrow:
     
  14. ya, his feedback scares me too. :scowl:

    I figured that the family before me who lived here, left it here as a project for me because they knew my profession – but when I called them to ask them about the bass, they didn’t recall a bass ever being in the basement because none of them played instruments


    dun..dun...DUUUUNNNNN!

    The only thing that will make me believe this bass is haunted is if the S/N is 666! :p

    That price will go way up in 9 days. I'd buy it and do a full review for you guys if I didn't have to pay for it and keep it. I wish I had the money around to do that, but I'm in college! :meh:
