OK, hands up who thinks a Bill Lawrence pickup is worth this much ??
    Item number: 150330825840   
Personally giving the guy a call or sending him an e-mail and buying a new one direct is clearly a better option. IMHO.

thats rather OTT.

Maybe Bill Lawrence should sell directly on ebay, he'd make more money if they all went for that much.

I think that was a BL-USA L500, thicker blades than those actually made by Bill and Becky.  I paid a few quid less than that for 2 B&B L500s shipped to my letter box. That went for probably just under double what its worth IMO.

one of my favourite phrases is 'people are stupid', this just proves it.

why would you bid on something without investigating what it's really worth??  maybe they never heard of google??

There are a lot of gullible people out there and a lot of ebay sellers taking advantage of them. I'm amazed at how many Les Paul clones are described as law suit models in every other sentence when the only reason the manufacturers should be in Court is for making a crap copy!

... and for the UK members only... anyone want to put a picture of a chicken in here for no good reason (you've managed it in some of our other topics!)

are you dissin my chickens Norfolk??  I guess youre more used to turkeys up there [:)]

If it is highly offensive to certain races, religions or washburners then it can be removed at request....but you'll have to come up with a pretty damn good argument for it. Seen as the chicken is a bantam, and washburn manufacture Bantam basses I found it quite appropriate. Plus the fact that it was really just to amuse cornish boy.

Chickens aint evil....now ferrits THEYRE evil!!!!

I can't be wasting time with things like brushing my hair! its tramp style. Check out Guthrie Govan, he has nailed tramp style, but your can't argue with his skills! I'm hoping it'll work like that for me.


as for my new guitar, I know you guys secretly love anticipating it! all in good time :)

I bet it's actually something he got from argos, it's all just a ruse to keep us pre-occupied while he paints a washburn logo on it!!!

stacks of gunk, that's the best way to keep your hair tidy, and a silly little chin beard, i'm enjoying having one of those at the moment!!!
