So, I suck pretty bad with technology, and I was just toying around on ebay, and I accidently bought a guitar
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=220196673094&_trksid=p3907.m32&_trkparms=tab%3DWatching

I was looking at it, and it said buy it now for 500. under that it said, or best offer. I clicked best offer and typed in 350 just for fun, and it said congratulations, pay now? WTF? I thought it was 500!!!

Anyways, at least I have a cool story about how I got my new guitar.
I haven't even heard of the brand before.

Yes, this is spam, but it's damn funny
#3
/\ ya, I kinda admitted that already. I was more hoping people would get a kick out of it and share laughter with/at me, rather than calling me stupid though... but whatever helps your self esteem I guess
#5
Don't you have to create an account? And give a credit card number? And doesn't it ask if you're sure like 3 times?
It is a nice guitar. Maaaybe not $350 nice, but nice.

you've never heard of telecasters...

Nice buy haha, since you've already bought it, make the best of it!

Body is made of solid alder, so you can upgrade neck and crap with a good result in the end, but it seems like a pretty good guitar altogether!
#9
the guitar's nice i wouldn't have bought it even by accident for 350$ and u can never trust ebay sellers
#10
SX guitar is around $200-$250 range

debra = my mom. I'm not quite old enough for a credit card so I use her account and give her cash.

And I've heard of teles :P . I knew I was getting one, but not this one. I'd never heard of 'SX', the brand. I was probably going to get an MIM tele and put fender specials in it and a warmoth neck, but then I kinda accidentally got this one... just thought i'd share for shits and giggles at my extreme fail...
There are some good things that came from this though:
i love butterscotch blonde, and MIM teles don't come with it!!!
I got it for 50 bucks less than an MIM tele!
I didn't have to go to GC and be pressured by the dbags to get crap i dont need
I learned something about ebay!
#16
Wait!

I think I just found a way to get out of buying this!
Look at the guys ebay post: Even in the title he calls it a "telecaster". On the actual page:
http://www.rondomusic.com/stl50.html
There isn't the word "telecaster" once. SX never calls it a telecaster. I could contact ebay and tell them that he called this item something it isn't, and get out of paying it. What do you guys think? Do i have a chance?

EDIT: He even put it under the "FENDER" category! what do you think?

i think you just got punkd!

You can get out of it, say you're under 18 and didn't know what you were doing. Seriously, don't pay for it, and buy an even nicer tele at Rondo music with that $350.
#19
there's a section in ebay's contact us about misleading titles. I just sent them a message and I'll see what happens. He put it under fender telecasters, and it's an SX STL50. Doesn't matter if it looks like a tele, it isn't a tele by definition. I could get his account suspended if i wanted to! I have a very good feeling I'm gonna win this.. Punkd or not, I will win in the end

I don't know, man. He specifically stated that it's an SX guitar, and then also specifically mentioned that it's not a Fender, by misleadingly claiming it to be better than one. Sure, the description has a bit of opinion in it, but it's not a brand misrepresentation per se.

You could try reasoning with the seller, but seeing as they listed a $110 guitar at $550 BIN, they're probably cackling in satisfaction right now.

your mom's account has 3 positive feedbacks.
if nothing else, don't pay and delete the account. and hope the guy doesn't take it up with ebay and they don't do anything to any future accounts of yours (which they prob won't).
#34
dude act like a stupid 14 yr old say u were mucking around with a friend and wed at the this fender american butterscoth tele.
#35
bro its pretty simple,

#1: tell your mom the exact story you told us, since it makes sense, even if you are kind of dumb, its all good.

#2: just dont pay...I mean its so common on ebay for people to just not pay when they say they will buy something, it isnt even funny.

if it charged your moms card autmatically or something, then have her call the credit card company, say you didnt authorize the charges, and theyll reverse them. then tell the seller to **** off and you arent paying, they for sure wont send you the guitar (even if it is a piece of junk) unless youve paid for it.

problem solved

dont do stupid things lol....

and if you want to mess around wiht the best offer function, START LOW! lol

do not pay. he was trying to rip you off, even if it was legal. screw him.
explain your age and mistake, also the crazy price he was asking, in any case f#$% him.
#37
Don't pay. When I was little, I ****ed up and accidentally bought a laptop on eBay. Never paid and there were no repercussions (other than a negative feedback that no one will believe).
Sincerely, Chad.

Well, you can't deny there's a 350$ winning bid on that guitar, so I don't really know what you're on about.
