    You can cancel his bid, however I couldn't tell you how. Haven't needed to do it in years.

    second highest bidder is also a new, zero feedback guy, who has no offered to buy for $150 less than reserve, outside the auction.
    maybe i just need to end early, relist, and add some buyer qualifications.
    bummer.

    I wouldn't worry about ending the auction early, that's a good lookin' bass at a fair price. The truth of the matter is, you'll generally see most of the bidding activity in the last few minutes of the auction, and you'll find out who the real buyer is.

    Also, for me, bids are automatically blocked from bidders in countries I say I don't ship to. I know, too late, but you should check your profile to make sure this option is set.

    Yessir, I understand about the last minute bidders; that's me.
    I won't place a bid before the last 30 seconds.
    Andyeah, I'll update my profile and buyer requirements should I need to relist, and for the future.

    It is a nice bass, and Skip did a real nice job on the frets/neck/setup.

    Here is a qualification I add to ALL of my auctions:
    "If you have zero feedback I will cancel your bid unless you email me first to assure me that you intend to follow through with paying for the item. I reserve the right to not allow bids from Indonesia or any other place or circumstance I feel is unreliable."
