I just got a 12 string in near mint condition on ebay for 40£

Any tales of pitters getting steals on ebay?


I searched and there was none. I also *hope* that this is the best place for it (not a gear forum), I know its a guitar... but this is Ug!

How much did you pay for shipping? Usually when the price seems too good they hide the rest of the price in the shipping.

eBay changed their policy so I don't think you can do that anymore - It was very annoying!

Well, I'm selling a Boss RC20-XL and it's up for £160 at the moment...

is at least 26 years old.

Dunlop Crybaby Wah, $26 total shipped overnight.

The poster ended up listing it some other category than guitar effects and spelled Wah wrong. He called it a Wha Wha pedal.

Ive only been ripped off by ebay. Like last summer when I tried to buy Final Fantasy VII but got a memory card instead. And when I tried to buy Pandemonium a week later and was sent the PAL version that doesnt work on my PS2. Although that was my fault, I should have read the fine print.

Found a pair of shorts on there for like 3$ when a few months earlier I paid around 15$ in a store for the same.

EDIT: Also, I got one of my guitars (Jackson DK2M) off there for $420

Fuck yeah eBay.

I've only used Ebay once, but it was for something I really wanted. Genghis Tron Dead Mountain Mouth in clear vinyl for like $30 after shipping. Considering its something I'd never find in a store, it was a pretty good price.

Hahaha I thought TS was claiming that eBay steals from people. I got Mac OS X Leopard for about $140, saved about 100 bucks over retail, not bad I think.

I managed to snag a docking station for my sister's laptop for £0.99 - the postage was about seven times that

Oh, and I bought a car stereo for £75 - JVC with iPod control, and they threw in a pair of 300w 6x9 speakers. I wasn't expecting much given that the unit alone was selling for £60, but these speakers are ASTONISHING! Sound quality is beautiful. I just wish I hadn't had the fascia stolen (thankfully it happened at work and the company paid out).

I recently bought a brand new £30 head set for £5 including postage! (won with a 99p bid)

Another friend of mine won brand new copy of Reason 3 and a M-audio MIDI controller for £40 D:
