    There seems to be a conflict with CL ads all the time.

    I'm keeping the deposit. I'm sick of indecisive BS from musicians. He's got guitars up the ass, but his daughter's supposed diabetes is preventing him from purchasing my LP Custom? He told me that he has an office in Orlando, and that he would be flying in this weekend, but wasn't sure which day. He said that he would be picking it up sometime between Saturday and Monday, and that he would give me a $1OO.OO to prove his earnest. I ended-up hanging around the house all weekend, waiting for the call. He calls today to cancel, then hints on getting his deposit back? :squint:

    Parents worst nightmare: Mom, dad... I met a guy... He's a musician.

    yes. type 1 is usually either born with or discovered as a child.
    type 2 is usually caused by life style choices and rarely fatal.

    ...
    But, why would he want to refund a deposit on a guitar you're buying?

    That does not sound like a nice person and that sucks that you waited around all weekend for him and he never came so based on that I probably change my mind and say it is non refundable

    The fact that his daughter may have diabetes is irrelevant. He placed a deposit on the item, then backed-out. He wanted the guitar, found something that he wanted more, then came up with a BS excuse. Bingo!

    I don't like BS stories and the nose detector went up when he did not come for it over the weekend and your time is certainly valuable and you should not have to wait around all weekend and that is what changed my mind as I am all for Kharma but not at the sake of having to wait at home for a jerk that never shows up which is plain bad manners !

    11 years ago I was selling a kx 250 it was a 2000 year model, needed rings only, work had shut down because of all the shit that had taken place, this is the year 2008. I put the bike on CL, and got a number of responses, one guy asked if I could hold it for him, me remembering how tough it is to come up on funds for something that isn’t necessary said sure, I received many more replies on the bike and told them all that I was holding it for someone. Needless to say I get a call from his wife telling me he can’t purchase the bike, lesson learned. cheers and this was after many chats texts, and keeping in touch for nothing, same thing on a Korean made epi LP, many photos, email’s and conversations only to have him a, never show up, purchase it, then you get the scam artist who is willing to pay full price and 50$ on top for you to hold it till they get you a certified check. To all CL scammers I say pull up in my driveway and hand me cash. Cheers Mitch

    I told him that if he wanted to submit a deposit, I would drop the listing. If not, the listing would stay, and it's first with cash in-hand. He opted for the deposit, I dropped the listing.

    The other episode was my grandson decided to sell a unique (to me anyway) squire affinity no paint heavy gloss finish over the natural wood, that I had installed a dimarzio super distortion Humbucker in the bridge position, he met the courier got the worthless cashiers check and went up to Frisco to see his buddy, naturaly when the bank went to process the phony cashiers check it hit him like dominos. Thanks for listening to my rant . That is why I said what I said about the deposit, and not refunding it! Cheers Mitch

    I asked to pay a $100 deposit so it wouldnt sell to anyone else on the same day he listed it. Ofcourse no haggle full asking price cash I went and bought it. I didnt give him any BS I knew I wanted that custom, asked questions in person and got good answers. He offered to send the $100 back because I played on all his tube amps and watched his beatles band promo on his laptop. He is well off im not and it was a nice offer but I can work so I declined, the guitar is awesome he went wide eyed when I played bridge of sighs

    Well , when you present a episode like that with a bum check then I fully respect you for your position because there are a lot of unscrupulous folks out there .
