Faulty Squier Affinity - £5

Recommended Posts

£5 is only the starting bid, which means nothing. 

Even then, it's not worth going to Hull for a fiver. 😆

You could always brag that you'd been to Hull and back! 😂😂

UK City of Culture 2017.

A good friend of mine lives nearby and says they were marketing it with T shirts that read 'Come to Hull, it isn't crap any more'

They're terrible basses. I've played a few and they've been consistently crap.

A bit like Arsenal if truth be told.

I had one and it was really quite good.

I sold it for £50.

Do you mean ‘a bit like Harleys’?

Joking, joking, only joking, honest!

What’s the purpose of this thread, BTW? Appreciate there doesn’t have to be one, but just curious in case I’m missing a point somewhere....

I think it was just meant to be a heads up for anyone who might be interested in a "cheap" bass. But as I said earlier, the starting price has absolutely no relevance to the final price. In my experience, the vast majority of bidding on eBay happens in the last 5 seconds.

Ha! Only the Harleys that I own. They've all been on the back of a recovery truck at some point in their lives!

I get that, but this is literally a link to an eBay auction with no comment. Or am I missing something...?

I suppose because it's a link to an Ebay auction for a bass guitar. 🤷‍♂️

The comment ( or further bit of information) was possibly  in the title: 'Faulty' and '£5',  but I do feel you are overthinking things!

I can't tell if you're serious or not.. on the off chance you are and I haven't fallen for a leg pull, it seems to be a fairly straightforward heads up to the community of a potential bargain.

I’m being deadly serious - how’s it a potential bargain? It’s a perfectly standard auction...?

I’m honestly not being cantankerous - this is literally how auctions work.

Everything on eBay is a potential bargain!
