Man, I hope you're right. That would be a logical explanation and only a few of us here would have seen the link that way.  Explains why I saw the double order too.

Perhaps one of the admins can change his link to point to the product description and not the shopping cart.

I changed it. It still added an identifier number, but it's not linked to anyone's info....

It's definitely a real place.  I've been there many times.

Note that it's also saying in stock now. I don't suppose there are too many places with onhand CS VIs.

The case thing is a little weird though. Maybe it's a bari Jag promo?

Yea - That he don't know a whole lot (sic)  ::)

Well, oops! Sorry about that. To be honest I have limited knowledge of such things.
I just copied the link from another site...

It really does remind me of when I was VI-searching, with constant pump ups and let downs. Took me six months.

Seems like the Bass VI is one of the most elusive instruments ever - in more ways than one... ... :-[

I'm out of the area right now, but I'll be back there in two weeks.  If it's still up and/or unresolved, I'll stop by and see what's up.

I called them, talked to Steve. Took him a while, but in the end he confirmed it. It's a Jag Bass VI. Dang.

Oh no. That's not what I meant at all. We ended up finding a real name, mailing address, and email address. I guess it belonged to the person that posted it before you copied it here. So we ended up learning something about that other guy. :)

Calling the Bari Jag a Bass VI has really confused sellers:

I really do wonder if you went into one of these places and caught a newbie off guard you could score one for cheapo. That is of course if they ever had one in stock.

I find that link downright deceptive.
