    I've never seen anyone write so much but say so little in a Craigslist ad. What is he even selling? And why describe features like the bridge groundwire hole but not even bother to mention the brand name?

    Troll posting or serious? Best line:

    I like that the "keyboards that are calculated to drive you to this page" include Justin Bieber, The Lorax, Rap, and boobies.

    Has to be a joke - CL and this post. Someone working on a paper in descriptive terminology.

    My favorite:

    There are many advantages to playing bass over regular guitar with which you may be unfamiliar. For example, Flea and Sting. You get to use a one syllable stage name (compare with Yngwie Malmsteen or Stevie Ray Vaughan, it is much easier to spell and faster to sign autographs).

    By the description I'd say maybe an Ibanez gaxb?

    I'm gonna go ahead and say that's a troll/joke posting. Also, based on the response I would have to give it a 10/10.
  10. Hysterical post!

    Ok I'll take two of what ever he is smoking!! It seemed like I was reading an instruction manual for my old Panasonic VCR:D

    That is awesome.
  14. I think I smoked exactly what he was smoking...it made perfect sense to me. Of course, I imagined a weird Ibanez/Fender/Boutique/Wal-Mart bass hybrid.
