        Tired of you kid getting beat up at school? Strap this guitar on him! - $100 (East Austin)

        I hear about this all too often... A normal everyday kid growing up in central Texas being called names

        or even worse, beat up.

        I too suffered from these simple hate tactics until one afternoon in the 7th grade when a senior decided

        he didn't want to see me suffer any longer and would sell me a "pair of balls to wear on the outside".



        I immediately started shredding on this everywhere I went and soon lost my virginity.

        Everything worked out. I'm set. Now its your turn as a father, brother or friend(that stands and watches

        you get beat up) to help someone out.

        this guitar is in perfect working condition

        very few dings.

        • Okay, this isn't a ridiculous listing but WHY WHY WHY do people list things with no model name and fuzzy photos so you can't just see what it is. Are they afraid you'll look it up?



          Example here. I have friends who might just like this; it looks a quality unit. But what is it?

              I've wondered about that as well. I think in most cases it has more to do with stupidity than subterfuge. As Hanlon's (Heinlein's?) Razor goes: "Never ascribe to malice that which is adequately explained by incompetence."

                      For some reason, the Triton is consistently one of the most over-valued workstations on Craigslist, as far as what the owner thinks it's worth.



                      I've seen sellers post the same overpriced synth for months - in some cases years -- and simply refuse to budge on the price.



                      It's especially funny when they use misleading language to try and pump up the item for sale -- e.g. touting the "true analog fatness" in their digital synth, etc.

                        • Freecycle is a bit like that, with people putting far TMI in to try and manipulate people into giving them stuff.



                          My friend saw a request for baby clothes a month or so back for "the twin that didn't die"

                          • Lately a number of instruments for sale because of arthritis or "my fingers going numb."



                            No "I died last month" yet, though.
