Notice anything interesting in the description?

He pasted on nearly my entire T-40 info sheet, (without citation) including the notes about the pickups, and still managed to list a blade pickup bass as an '81 model. I shot him an email about both issues, so we will see what happened.

My question is this. If someone quotes you at length, even on the internet, are they required to at least cite you? I'm not mad at this fellow, I just think it's a nice courtesy if you are going to take somones words and use them to promote your product.

eilif, I mentioned that in your info sheet thread a couple of days ago. As the originator and maintainer of a very useful collection of facts about these basses, you should put a copyright note right at the top of it, so that anyone who wishes to quote it would realize credit has to be given where due.

I thought I would post you a story about a copy rickenbacker sold as a 70's bass on ebay and when i checked the serial number it was a 90's bass which I informed the seller, he said he would change the details of the listing but he didnt in the end. Someone bought his 90's bass thinking they were getting some kinda vintage. Did the seller change the details in your case? I guess it is buyer beware out there, also nobody cites anything... I think it is more lazy then malicious... well hopefully Wink Nice work by the way... very informative.
