A guy lowballs me for a week on the Marshall Studio 15 I am selling. He finally agrees to pay the asking price. When I ask for payment he writes, “bring it to [city two hours away] and if I like it I will buy it.” Sure dude, I’ll do a four hour round trip so you can try out my amp and see if you like it 🙄😳

Hondo Fame pbass $4,000

Nato plywood body, trussrod is out of adjustment. Made in Japan at the fujigen factory circa 1980. Since everybody thinks their p.o.s. guitars are worth big bucks these days I can let this go for $4000. What a steal. Why buy something usable when you can buy this gem and play the hell out of it until the humidity changes. Lowballers will pay $5000. Trade value : $6000 Good luck bidding

FB Marketplace. Warmoth body, Mighty Mite neck. Pay close attention to the "Made in Indonesia" on the rear of the headstock. I really hope this is a joke sale ad.

What the F is with all the people thinking their old but not vintage Gibson bass is worth 2-3 times what it's really worth.

I own this exact bass, if it's worth this much now you'll see it soon in the for sale subforum. Last I checked you'd have a hard time getting 800.


I'm surprised the dude didn't try to leverage that a Victory (though a deluxe/artist vs the Standard, and candyapple red vs silvergreen ) was used by Marty McFly's bass plaer at the beginning of Back to the Future.

And this is just insane:

Which is almost 2k more than a vintage RD Standard (which is what Krist actually played) or like 1.5k more than an RD Artist CMT (last year/2 of prod they added a curly maple top and binding, broke the FX switmode switch into 2 minitoggles and burst finishes were much nicer than the former years "clown burst").

In both cases I went to ebay to see if I was just out of touch (nope, but it seems the sellers are looking at a few extranious asking prices vs actual slod prices because there havent been any recently; fer frick sakes ya noobs)

That's the third time the Victory has been up for sale, at the same price.
I've considered it a few times , but not at that asking.

Stumbled upon this by looking at Jon's other listings. Real $$$ opportunity here. Just a couple hitches.

I showed this one to my wife.

“Hey Honey, wanna make $450/month?”

“Gross. No”

She might have an issue with the showering.

LOL! I read the ad to mine and told her that I'm leaving her to go live in somebody's backyard. She told me that I can't come to her for the other 4 days to shower.

Ouch!!!! LOL

"speaker is 3times bigger than yahama or other Amps" LOL it's a 15.

Also the inflation of prices on TS series amps has gotten well out of hand. This is a pretty cool amp (especially if it has the original RCF speaker) but common man.

I assume he uses new math to determine speaker sizing. He hasn't quite gotten the grasp yet though.

If it is the RCF, maybe he's referring to the magnet size, compared to some 'yahama' practice amp. :)
