"Optimistic" eBayers

OK, we all see a "get real" auction, so I'm going to set the bar quite high on this one. Can you fulfill all three requirements and give us all a laugh?

1) Guitar is a well-known plank
2) Starting bid and/or BIN is frankly barking mad
3) This is the tie-breaker - a really lame/inventive excuse for the barmy price.

Perhaps ultra-mods like Mike and Jason will come up with a duff prize if the thread takes off. Here's my starter:

Starting bid is twice the value, BIN is quadruple the value, and I love this bit of pitch from the seller - "i would think a fender collector would want one of these and now you can". If I have to, I'll bring up the crummy Marshall cab "as used by Page and Plant" in reserve.

They've gotta be good'uns, people :)

You must be missing something, surely. £10,000.00 Buy Now ???

edit: Maybe ask him who gave it to him as a gift, it can be the only explanation.

The guy must have typed it wrong or something.....

"You are bidding on a brand new squier fender guitar i got it as a gift and i just dont have the time to play it.It is black and white with wham bar and strap
Bid goes over £160 P&P is free
e-mail with any questions"

It can't really be that much, even if he's a total retard :shock:

Who's going to "Ask seller a question" and query the exorbitant price?

Already did it, no reply yet.

That acoustic with "light frontal damage" as the salvage-repair boys say, you know my favourite quote from the auction?

when you decide to repair a guitar like this it must be done in stages over a week or so,you can't do it all at once

A week or so, eh? Thanks for pointing out it might not be fixed up in a day. "Here's one I prepared earlier"

there are no salvagable parts from it, the neck has the heel broken, the body is smashe top sides and bottom, looks like Freddie the forklift driver did a real good job on this one.
