I was thinking (not very seriously) of getting a little Pignose 7-100 and went on eBay and Reverb. Reverb didn't have many, so I scanned eBay for a couple weeks. Very few were auctions, so for price shopping I looked at Buy It Now listings. But the prices seemed weird. Bear in mind you can get one new for around $75 -- with free shipping -- from well-known online sellers, MF etc. But over a week or two, most *used* ones on the 'bay showed prices very nearly that high or *higher,* usually plus substantial shipping. These were all recent, made in China models, often with tears, scars, and dings. A smaller group listed at slightly better prices -- say $42 -- but with $38 shipping, or $60 with $19 shipping, or "parts only" for price + shipping of $55 to $75. The really puzzling group showed prices like $80 to $150 *plus expensive shipping*. This was not a small group. One I recall was from a well-known regional guitar shop, used, for $95 + $35 shipping. I decided I wasn't looking after all. And yes, I did see one "not tested" that looked good for $59 total and another "local pickup only" for $50. But overall, a big strikeout. Looking today I see one for $250 (to be fair, it appears to be old vintage with the colorful label -- the only one I've seen in 2 weeks -- but it also says "not tested.") Is this just a weird sample? Is there a Pignose craze? Or are eBay sellers getting more clueless, or more greedy, or ???
