I was the "other guy" that was in the bidding war for that beautiful MK1. I am still bummed, after loosing the auction due to a slow web connection. If there are any other Wal owners out there with more than one in your possession, share the love. I would be privileged to join the list of Wal owners. It would improve my quality of life & make me a happy man. Please contact me at: stoyo1@mac.com

You might want to look into a site like esnipe.com.
Looser is the opposite of tighter, not winner.

Thanks for the line hippiesandwich. Next time I will be the sniper & don't have to be "that other guy".

I use esnipe often. It is pretty reliable and has saved me a ton of dough. They will charge you a small commission (1%) for their services, but having the piece of mind that my bid will be executed on time is worth it.

Good luck,

Ben

Esnipe bids on your behalf literally at the second you specify (5 seconds left in the auction, 12 seconds left, whatever you requested) and the end result is the same as if you bid on the auction manually. What this means (and what many people don't get) is that the highest bid still wins, not necessarily the last bid. When multiple people are using esnipe (or sniping manually) what you will typically see is the price of the auction jump up substantially in the last few seconds.

A perfect example of how this saves you money is when I won the auction for Lakland #5001 (1st production 5 string). The bass was listed at $1700NR. I bid $1700. Bidder two comes along and bids and the amount goes to $1725. I could have kept bidding until I passed what he had bid (driving the price up in the long run) but instead I did nothing and placed an esnipe bid for something like $1977. No one else bids on the auction, and it turns out bidder two only bid the minimum bid increment ($25, which made the auction $1725) so I although Ibid $1977 I win the bass for $1750. No bidding war. I pay esnipe 1% ($17.50) for bidding which was less than one bid increment. This is why it is important to bid what the item is truly worth to you - if bidder two had bid $2027 instead of just bumping the minimum bid increment he would have won - of course he would have watched the price jump from $1725 to $2002 in the last seconds (one $25 bid increment over my highest bid) but he would have won.

Esnipe is also great for auctions that end when you will be away from your computer, or if (like in my case) you have painfully slow internet access.

My eSnipe account has a fee limit of $10 per item and no fees for any auction that ends under $25.
(But I've had the account since the site was free.)
