While not a bass Bay ad, this fella is not even suitable for an X Files episode.

Anyone have a very long sleeved sportcoat with buckles? Mr Far Beyond needs professional help.

Crack Smoker of the Day:

He bought this bass from me for $2400 on eBay in June, then he bought a period correct hard case on eBay for $299 - if you're playing at home that's $2699 total. Now he's listed it on eBay for a BIN of .......... $7500 !!!!!!!!!!!

Capitalistic, non-realistic crack smoker. His vision of dollar signs is a mere mirage. [smilie=tosser.gif]

You guys, we have to do screenshots or some kind of 'perma-link' to this stuff- it gets hauled off CL too fast! I need some entertainment over here!! [smilie=grinning-smiley-044.gif]

That "FenDan" guy made me want to hit him with a glass of water and a taser gun... just kidding...

I can't see anything to indicate that this bass isn't a 57 P either. [smilie=coz.gif]

The Interwebz can be very helpful in identifying basses....
