There was a white Quantum bass for sale in France - was listed late last evening and I contacted the owner...

The white paint had yellowed very noticeably over the years but other than that, it looked good...

I tried to barter with the asked price a bit because of the paint issues, but I guess it didn't matter to another buyer because it sold quickly - I think it was up for roughly 12 hours only...

Is anyone here the lucky new owner...? If so, congratulations... Very Happy

Sorry to hear.
I've had that kind of thing happen to me too.

I learned the hard way that 'if you snooze you looze'.  Cry Sad

I wasn't snoozing, but I was attempting to negotiate a slightly lower price based upon area-specific yellowing on the body...I suppose I'd have gotten it if I had just paid the asked price, but it just didn't feel right...

I was aware that I might lose the bass because of it but I was hoping for the best and also didn't want to get caught up in any possible bidding war...In my world, the asked price was about 20% too high...

I'll get the next one... WinkDammit, the white Quantum got away... Screen11
