with 3 hours to go and a price of $2000 with the reserve met: #
No financial interest, etc....
Blurry pictures - makes me a bit nervous.....???
Blurry pictures for sure, but I kinda figure the guy didn't run up 61 feedback just to scam someone on a mandolin, though..
I have a feeling the "snipers" are gonna hit in the last minute of the auction.... at least thats what I would do if I wanted
$2,450 was the final price... one heck of a deal if you ask me. Seems like a straight shooted based on the answers to the questions people asked him, and it sounds like it was in great shape.
WoW! That was a pretty good deal! Sometimes when the auction ends at night or in the middle of the day when a lot of people are working you can catch some good deals.
This is a perfect example of why people (like me!!) are addicted to eBay!
$2450... on a mandolin, that today, would sell new for $4600. Makes me sad, but that is the exact reason that I will never buy a new Gibson. I couldn't afford to take a $2000 hit if I should ever have to sell it.

He wouldn't have taken that much of a hit if he had sold it here instead of ebay. I have an awesome Taylor guitar that cost me over $1k in '93, costs a lot more than that now for a new one, but mine is still only worth about $500-600 right now. You can't have a much better rep than Taylor, stuff just depreciates, it seems.Originally Posted by (Steve Perry @ July 27 2005, 09:51)
I would have put a reserve price on that mandolin, then again he/she was selling some other stuff too so maybe they just wanted to unload some equipment.Originally Posted by (Steve Perry @ July 27 2005, 09:51)
In any case I know the buyer is waking up a happy camper today!
