Hopefully someone with enough money to buy that also has enough brains to check the bands website first.
I've been thinking about the THREE vinyl which i think will be even more popular than any we've released so far.
I'd like to really make that one as high class as possible, really go to town on it. Have a $200+ price tag on it, but it's completely pimped out.
The higher budget we have, the better we can make it but the less of them we can make.
If we did it at that price level then we'd only make around 200 or so but we'd probably have enough in the budget to be able to have each copy customised with the buyers name embossed on the back cover rather than a number.
That might sort the wheat from the chaff.
Greasy alright.... and there are more than the ways I suggested to draw attention to the fact by those looking at buying from such a source.
Bonus is that you draw attention to other market sources.... set up an 'about me' page which provides links back to you or even this web site.
The 'parallel listing' way is probably the least underhanded. Fact is, if people put in the correct search terms it will bring up that listing as
well as any other that severely undercuts the 'greasy ones'. Just get the timing right so they sit along side each other under 'ending soonest' listing of items.
Interesting option in relation to 'Three'. Made to order in a way. Unfortunate such has to be undertaken. Of course it would be 'easier' to market these at a much higher level.. ie. 1st Editions of 2,000 or even 2nd Editions that bring secondary market prices back to a realistic level.
Capitalistic market forces hey.... Greed is good? Sorry, I can't agree to that.
Just remember what money can't buy folks.
Perhaps that Jeff Buckley version of Satisfied Mind I posted earlier in a very restrained yet disgusted reply, may help you realise.
