Default Ebay Selling Hints

There is a way to make B8 cymbals at least look good.

Haha!
Love the third pic!

I say we make bets on how much this sells for!

The spokes model is OK. I don't think that cymbal will fetch $75, however.

I have seen a lot of ads like this on eBay lately.
I'm sure that it works.
"Sex Sells" is a concept that has been proven.

I understand this sort of advertising makes more people (let's be frank - males) look into those auctions. But I can't understand why those auctions are actually more successful. Ok, one would take a look at the auction and find an attractive girl depicted with the actual item. So what? Does this make the item itself any better? Next step: Closing the window and forgetting about the auction... at least that's what I think.

I noticed that the cymbal stands don't have sleeves on. Someone needs to tell this seller that they need to put protection on the tilter before inserting it into the cymbal hole...

And there is NO amount of antibiotics that will fix keyholing.

Seriously, that's what I thought! I'm convinced that if she gave the impression that
she really can play (he should hire Meytal or so...) it would look a lot more attractive
to drummers!

Since we're at it.. which of this beauties is your personal favourite?

The Fender Coronado?
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-1966...item4cfbb1fd63

The all-time classic Strat?
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-1973...item4cfb5a1112

Or the famous Les Paul Goldtop?
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-1966...item4cfbb1fd63

Tough one, uh?

I think I'm going with the Gibson.

.. No.. maybe the Coronado..

There are three round things in that picture and I am definitely only interested in two of them.

I think I actually would NOT buy from this seller. Advertising on this level
makes him a bit suspicious to me.

1,884 positive feedbacks. He's probably pretty safe. Or at least as safe as most...
