Some folks are trying to make a killing in profits in eBay. One seller has a brand new Kala Lacewood concert with a Buy It Now price of $888.88. According to the Kala web site the list price is $450. Of course the seller is offering free shipping which is surely worth the remaining $438.88. I thought April 1 already came this year.

This is just one of many listed like this recently.

Really? Well, I suppose if they sell them at that price, it's a "great" deal for them!

There really has been a lot of that going on. I don't know how folks figure they can sell stuff on eBay like that. I mean, a simple web search will make it clear that they are way over what their product is worth.

The only thing I could think is:

#1 He hopes to make money on people who dont know better

or

#2 It is a typeo

I have had type-os! Once I had a uke at $100 more than it should have been...
THEN
Another time I had a limited All Solid Koa Soprano listed for a Mahogany price. Luckily a dear sweet UU member wrote me to say "Mim honey... you may want to fix that!" Haha!
