    Default Ebay laugher of the week award

    I thought it would be fun to do a ebay laugher of the week award for guitar related gear only. This one is a sure candidate. Asking price is 3 times of what it is worth. This ball has no significance to ask that price and it is not even a low serial # or anything special. Even the fact that it is mint does not justify $8000 It is red and they make a lot of red ones. This is my candidate for Ebay laugher of the week award. http://cgi.ebay.com/Ernie-Ball-Music...QQcmdZViewItem

    All the power to him if he gets it , I'd say he's just trying to keep his wife quiet by listing it, Then when it doesn't sell its a huge releif. I'm in the same boat now with one of mine I hope it doesn't sell, but ebay had a special $0.10 listing day so wtf, If I get what i want great if not even better

    Man I love eBay morons.
    Sad thing is most of the morons are the ones that fall for the shit and buy it.
    There was a dude on there last week sellin a set of reflectors, 3-way switch, and a quarter.
    Buy it now- $75. Some clown bought it.
    Next week, But it now- $99. Couldn't bare to look.
    I could have been rich.

    To me, this one is the biggest laugh of the century. I wouldn't give this guy $100.00 for this busted up piece of shit:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/VAN-HALEN-LOGO-G...QQcmdZViewItem

    From the ad:

    "THIS ARE 2 CRACKS WHERE IT FELL AT THE CHARVEL FACTORY DURING AN EARTHQUAKE."

    WTF???

    I think so... and it had close-up photos of the cracks, which looked REALLY bad. I notice they didn't include those photos in this run. Go figure.

    I sold a mint condition Moser Van Halen Logo Guitar w/display case about five months ago on Ebay, and it only brought $4500.00 - which was $1000.00 more than I paid for it a few years ago. This guy is trying to get $20,000.00 for a busted up piece of junk. Dream on.
