Which brings me on to another gem.

 

Sold as seen.

 

Aka kn#ckered!

to be fair there are as many chancers buying as selling. i once sold a very accurately described and photographed mercedes on ebay only for the chancer to be demanding money back nearly 4 months later livid that the 17 year old 200000 miles plus car bought for just under £500 had developed an electrical fault.

Mentioned this class bit of hyperbole in the G&L thread but worth repeating here - "I bet Leo himself breathed the thin nitro coating on to it."

 

Did Leo die from huffing nitro? :S

Near retail price as it’s been “extensively upgraded” with a quarter pounder and a different colour scratchplate…

 

or sellers who tell me the price of how much some tech charged them to fit the set of strings (on an electric bass) and then expect that cost to be added to their asking price…

Also the “I met <insert famous name>
who shook my mates hand so I licked it then licked the bass” so I’ll add on £4000 to the price…

Ex (insert famous bassist) bass played on the (insert famous album) tour.

Usually for a model bass that the named bassist has never played and on the tour where the band had a different bassist. 

For example "Ex Cliff Burton Dingwall NG2 which he played on the St Anger tour"

For me that always works against an instrument - some famous artist who can afford whatever they want had a choice of keeping this bass, but they decided to get rid of it as it wasn't as good as the other ones they had.

Not exactly one careful lady owner.

Amps: " Recently serviced" By that you mean you sprayed a bit of pot cleaner about then.

Or it's just gone bang, I got it fixed but was told it won't last much longer.

nothing came of it. no case. i sold the car in good faith, but anyone who expects no repair bills for any used car let alone a 17 year old one is delusional.

I spoke to my local amp tech about servicing after he had repaired mine. He said blow the dust out of it once a year but other than that, if it sounds good then don't touch it.

Might try that with my car.
