    I was going to place a bid, but then I saw there was a shipping charge. I'm out. :D

    Yep, NJ -- I'm guessing the cocaine thing is probably closer to the truth than you think! ;) :D

    Alternatively...

    If it comes with a 1960 Les Paul inside, then maybe... :rolleyes:

    That's what I was thinking. I accidentally put a maximum bid of $10,000 on something once, meaning to put $100. (it closed for like $75 so it wasn't a big deal)

    That happens to be around the amount I have left on my mortgage. If I could busk on a street corner and use that case for tips, the tip money could pay off my mortgage and the second mortgage that I’m now seriously considering so that I can acquire the case.

    You mean meant to type 129.00 but the period did not go through so it says 12900? Yeah, probably. Someone should ping the seller.

    Then again, maybe he is waiting for some sucker to pay full price.

    You'd think with 7000+ transactions under his belt, he'd know better!

    I think it's one of those attention-getting ads, like for a $5K Tube Screamer.
    They hope you'll look at the ad, then the rest of their gear.

    Maybe he meant to set the currency to yen. Or pesos. That could account for it...

    Or, since he specified "Canada," maybe he was compensating for the exchange rate... ;)

    Nah, just a misplaced decimal point. At least the dude isn't flying a jetliner into Gimli! :D

    Awesome. I'm not an expert on Gibson cases, but I've only seen those handles on Chibson cases.

    I lived in a state where ticket scalping was illegal so you would see jacked up prices for ball caps or pins with tickets included as a free gift.

    Perhaps there is a stolen '59 inside and this way the seller can claim he isn't selling stolen property.

    Free market/economy, if someone's willing to pay it.... Why not and good luck to the seller... if they can dupe someone into paying that price.

    ie, some folk must have more money than sense. So, instead, just buy a new Gibson case, and give the difference to a food bank/ children's charity! :cool:

    I’ve got three of them, two have all the latches/locks intact and working. I’ll take $9,000.00 each with free worldwide shipping. Check or credit card must clear before shipping. I’m just careful that way

    Hey, everyone! Put it on your watch list!

    The seller will be so excited they'll be unable to sleep all night.
