    Shameless.

    "Very rare" and "One of Rondo's top sellers"
    And using serial number as rare model number.

    Maybe it's rare because it's not in Florida? @tobijohn

    LMAO mentioned this guitar in the other lost mind thread. He relisted at a good bit lower price and much cheaper shipping. Either he really doesn't want to sell or he's really clueless. The first time he listed I emailed he was pretty much in denial and said he wouldn't take less than $625 or that neighborhood . plus shipping.

    "Buy with confidence"... that you're getting ripped off? no one will buy this, and if they do they probably deserve it?

    It's worth what someone is willing to pay. If you don't ask, you don't get. As P.T. Barnum said “Nobody ever lost a dollar by underestimating the taste of the American public.”

    Looks like a fairly new seller on Ebay. I always get a kick out of these "OMG...Look how much this guy is selling X for" threads. As stupid as it seems for someone to list something this high, there are just as many stupid people out there that might believe it. If you don't believe it just try it sometime.

    he also said that there's a sucker born every minute. Certainly doesn't make it right though. I guess it's one of those high-price cases again. you know you can't get a rare guitar case like that just anywhere bitmoji-20180527065756.png

    It

    It's not that i don't agree with you but if someone is uninformed or ill-informed enough to buy something they don't know anything about you're bound to get burned sooner rather than later. There's always sellers out there that will try you.

    No I do understand but it just irks me that the same person that will try to be dishonest about a price will complain about dishonesty from our government or others trying to take some poor uninformed for their hard earned income. Its hypocrisy at its worst Jm2cents

    Still, it takes 5 seconds of googling to look up the value of almost anything in the world. If you're dumb enough to get played that easily, you're in for a tough life. JMHO

    Well, if you don't know much about guitars but have looked at Gibsons, older Agiles quality makes the prices seem reasonable. :)

    I decided to write the seller on ebay and inform him that these retailed for $200 and he told me to go fuck myself and he'll sell it for whatever he wants.

    Pretty much mirrors my experience with him when I told him original retail and lack of rarity of the Agile or case. As the saying goes Stupid is as stupid does.

    on the one hand, it is kind of dickholeish to try to take advantage of the uneducated by asking multiple times what something is worth on the fair market... on the other hand, who is going to spend that much on something without doing any research? i think he's in for a long wait to catch a sucker.
