I bought this brand new almost 2 years ago from a guitar store; it was the last one they had in this colour-way due to popularity.


An interesting alternative to the usual..

I spent four hours playing every guitar they had in the store and this was by far the best one. It just sings.

I didn't get what was wrong here until I got to the headstock photo. God, I hate these dicks.

But it's a Fender (Squier).

Your offer price: 200.00
Seller terms: Hi ******, thanks for your offer. I won't sell it for that however. Original purchase price plus upgrade costs was near 800. best, Dave.

How many more of us making offers like that would it take before he takes the hint, do you think? It's hard to tell the difference between a true scammer and a deluded idiot in situations like this.

^I don't think so, the fact that it says only "Fender" in the title is pretty obvious. Couldn't he be reported for that?

By the way, is that deck for 199 quid overpriced? I know nothing about collectors' skateboard decks.

I think deluded idiot in this case. Realistically, and on a good day, to the right person, he might get a little over 300 - I've seen stock VMJMs go for close to new price (why, I have no idea). The upgrades may have cost a bunch, but they don't add that much to the value, just make it more saleable.

eBay is a weird adrenaline rush. I use it for stuff with fixed BINs or auctions of odd, usually mis-spelt stuff (and even then I use a sniping program to fire and forget... why not? Every other fucker does it. Mr Spangle got nothing on me) but guitars are crazy. Basically, you're not going to get a good deal on there. You'll see a 1996 Japanese Jaguar with a bent neck selling for more than it would have cost brand new and wonder what the fucking point is.

Looking for Westones, Arias and the like is still good fun, though.
