Ok...

Today at apx 1 in the morning i go on ebay. I see this BEAUTIFUL Ibanez Destroyer from the early 90's if im not mistaken. It's going for near 300 when I start bidding.

Some jackhole company has it on instabid for 5 dollars more than me. So anytime I bid jerkoff company automatically outbids me.

Either way, I wake up all early to rebid....yes I hatched a scheme during my sleep. Wait till last minute and then take em to the cleaners. But honestly, how many times do things like that actually work out?


All in all I lost to a soul less company...



That was a beautiful guitar. I would have cherished it, taken care of it, it would have been like my third child.

BUT NOOOO

some soul-sucking money grabbing company outbided....mainly because 350 was my budget and I simply couldn't go anymore...

I hate those damn companies who just buy guitars and dont use em. For the love of god they were meant to be used...not stacked up on walls...

Im sure this has happened to some of you pit monkeys.

When you're sure the autobidder's 5 bucks higher, just bid WAY too much, like 1000 dollars, then that guy's gotta buy it for 1005:P
Only works with an autobidder though.

How would you know if it is a "company"? You cannot tell who the other bidders are, so it could've been someone using a program to autobid for it. There's no way for you to know who it is.

Usually you would set limits so it doesn't bid too much.

clist > ebay. It might have played poorly, you can't trust your eyes on the bay.

You should've bidded and bidded until that company automatically went broke.

Except even companies don't use 20 year old amiga algorithms to bid. You just set the max bid and ebay bids up to it automatically.

Find the company's name and look for it on their website soon. They're most likely going to re-sell it.

If they automatically outbid you $5 each time... why not bit $1,000,000 and make the company go bankrupt?!

All of the people bashing Ebay obviously don't know how to use it correctly. I've gotten working cellphones and an electric guitar in great condition all on Ebay.

But anyway, tough luck. Sounds really annoying. I don't shop on-line so can't help you there..

the condition of the guitar does not matter. never buy before you try.

Companies are legal/social constructs created to secure a collective interest; by definition they don't have souls.

Your complaint is invalid.

I was bidding on a Fulltone MDV-2 last week and the bidding ended early because the seller "lost" the item. I remain skeptical of that. He just wanted to keep it. There's no way to give assholes like that negative feedback, though.

Craigslist is so much better. I picked up a '99 '62 reissue neck in pristine condition for $150.

You can send it back and get a refund if it doesn't play properly, just as long as you pay with a credit card. Of course you need to ask the seller questions about it's playability and action ect. If it doesn't satisfy you than you can ask to return it and if the seller refuses you can call the card company for fraud and you will get a refund. There's this really good luthier in my town that has done that a few times with 100% success. Though I do think it's safer to buy from a local place.

Ebay is a free-market. It doesn't care who you are or where you come from - it only cares if you'll pay highest for the product at hand. Nobody said the free-market was nice, it's there for people who want to participate and understand what comes with it.
