What the hell is your problem? What is you don't understand?
If I honestly cared about what you thought I'd ask and I would have done so after that inane and pointless PM you sent me, but obviously you didn't get the attention that you crave, and have felt the need to derail my thread and spoil it with a serious breach of etiquette I thought the Classifieds section of this forum would observe.
What price I'm asking is of absolute no concern to you seeing as you have no interest in purchasing the instrument I have for sale, and mentioning how much different basses sell for elsewhere serves no purpose whatsoever.
Why don't you get lost? You've clearly nothing better to do with your life than to ruin people's thread with your unwelcome and unnecessary remarks. Go get a hobby, or a girlfriend.
I would suggest that demanding the deletion of posts that do not contravene the T&Cs of the forum, and then insulting long-standing members is not going to get you far here.
The considerable number of times you've bumped this with no interest does indeed suggest that you've priced above what the market will support.
Consider this post as friendly advice and a free bump. :)
I'll offer you 1 Big Mac.
If the frequency in which I bump this thread breaches the rules then I'm happy for a Mod to have a word and delete whatever I've posted.
This person's comments in this thread serve no purpose whatsoever and mentioning the price of how much different basses sell for elsewhere is an odd ting to do.
Perhaps you can explain to me what relevance does mentioning how much a Geddy Lee signature model bass sells for in a thread selling and Aerodyne bass becuase fretmeister seems reluctant to do so.
I would have thought the etiquette would be to refrain from posting such worthless and irrelevant comments designed to spoil and ruin in a person Classified thread and use the PM service.

Big Mac and Medium Fries...? :)
But seriously, I agree that the price is too high after seeing the new price, and I appreciate Fret pointing it out; however, the seller can decide to sell at whatever price he wants.
I made no reference to breaching the rules; I was simply pointing out that the number of times you've bumped without a sale suggests that you've priced above what the market will bear.

So why try and spoil a thread with nonsense that I ignored when he thought he'd PM me?
If he feels the price is too high then that's his opinion, but it's not for him to start ruining my thread explaining such and doing something as ridiculous as to mention how much a different instrument to the one I'm selling sells for on eBay.
I see, so it's acceptable to enter threads on Classifieds and then post about how much different items sell for?

1: The Geddy Lee model is a more desirable bass. Therefore usually more expensive. It is over £100 more when new and yet used achieves less than you are asking.
2: I also mentioned Aerodynes that have (and in several cases have not) sold on ebay in recent history. Your claim that there weren't any on ebay is not accurate.
3: Various members of this forum will offer friendly advice as to over-the-top (and as it happens too low) pricing.
4: Sporky is a Mod. If he wants to delete my posts I will not get upset. That is his function.
5: You decided that the friendly advice was a wilful attempt to stop a (probably) youngster buying an overpriced bass. It was not. I really don't care what you want for your bass and I don't care if some idiot pays it either when they should have known to stick it into google first.
I suspect you know it was over-priced by the way it hasn't sold on all the other forums as well.
EDIT: If I had any malicious intent whatsoever I would have put it up on other forums I visit as well. I have not because I do not.
