    What the heck is this? This ebay seller has this '58 Tele listed in 66 different auctions. Yep, that's right 66 auctions for the same geetar. Gives new meaning to absurdity.:eek: :?

    I checked the seller's feedback. And this looks to be the first item he's listed for sale.
    When you place your listing, it takes a while to show up.
    He probably thought he did something wrong & kept trying until he got it to show up.
    I wonder how he's gonna deal with this mess.

    Hey I thought exposing abject stupidity on eBay was my schtick! Actually thanks alot. I have a presentation tomorrow that's not quite ready so I don't think I'll have time to peruse eBay tonight. No kidding, it's better than Ebaum's World half the time.

    Perhaps Darwin was wrong?

    This appears to be the same guitar offered a couple of weeks back in which nobody met the reserve (bidding was at least over $14,000). Not sure what the old guy is up to now. But it is very strange indeed.

    I just clicked the link now and it says....."no item for sale"

    So the powers that be, must have wiped the lot, if you'll pardon the pun. :D

    You may be thinking of Herbert Spencer and Social Darwinism ("Survival of the fittest"). Darwin's theory can be summarized as "descent with modification".
