One of the many things about the discrete community that comprises’s user base is something approaching a collective obsession with shipping fees. It’s most easily seen at the price zenith for items up for sale: At $155,000, this 1960 Les Paul Sunburst really is priced to move, but you still have to pay an extra $70 for shipping. [!!!]

Got a million dollars to spend on an electric guitar? Oh, that’s too bad because you can’t afford to buy Rod Stewart’s guitarist’s 1959 Les Paul, which is $999,999 …. plus $170 in shipping & handling costs. If only you had that extra $169 in your budget.
