Strandwolf - The Emerald and the Plum are both '97 Deluxes. I just let the Plum go on Ebay. Shipped it off this morning *sniff* The Supreme is as Simon says a recent Ebay purchase. Simon has a really quick eye. I was watching the auction obsessively as I'm known to do and suddenly the buy it now price appeared. I was already prepared to go higher for this particular guitar and I pulled the trigger on it instantly when the buy it now price appeared. Turns out the seller had been contacted by a potential bidder and set the buy it now price so that bidder could purchase. I clicked a little faster this time and finally have that dream axe in my stable...

Does anyone on this forum have both a supreme and an artist? I'm curious about the tonal differences. I think a mojo might be my next purchase unless I can be persuaded to go for the artist first...

Once you go Parker you never go back.

I agree.

The most mid heavy guitar is the Mojo. With the stock pickups maybe even too much so but with more open pickups it is my favorite.

Wow. That must have been a real drag for the original buyer. Unless they didn't really want it, but it was slightly boneheaded; I think you can also add a "Best Offer" after the auction starts, and that way the buyer you (cough) promised the guitar to at a set price is the buyer that wins the auction. Of course, if someone writes sooner with a higher offer ...

The buyer (original) didn't complain?

I wuz wondering about that, too. Bummer for the designee.

That's the way I bought my Parker clock, by the way. The auction ended w/o a bidder @ the $19.99 price and I'd meant to bid, so the guy ran it at buy now at the same minimum for me and though I didn't fear another snapping it up quickly (the dude runs the item periodically, so it ain't one of a kind), I got on it within an hour or so.

I don't know if he complained or not but Ebay auctions are legally binding and I just beat him to the buy it now. I had no idea of course that that was why the seller had changed the auction to Buy it Now. Since I was already prepared to bid up to an amount that was higher than the buy it now price I simply saw an opportunity to buy it for less than I was prepared to pay. If the seller had let the auction run he would have got more for it but thats the way it goes I guess.

Oh, I agree - what's fair is fair, no doubt about that. The seller did the designated 'winner' a disservice by doing it that way, that's all. I don't blame you at all for dropping the BIN on the auction.

I guess the seller told you later about the other buyer?

Anyway, the "Best offer" way is really how to do it within the rules of ebay. I recently offered a seller a price in the last few days of an auction w/no bids and he agreed to set a best offer (this all happened in real time via email), and when it appeared I input the agreed upon amount and he accepted. Auction over.
