You have to love a person who gives "advise" then shows he knows nothing about the guitar in question then uses the thread as a way to prove some kind of "point".
Tell you what, since I like you so much, I'll sell it to you for $900, everyone else pays $700 plus shipping and no paypal. Paypal sucks balls.
Now if you don't mind, I have a date with a Blu-Ray copy of The Shining.
EDIT: I just noticed that you said $500, where did you get that number?
Yes, and you have to love someone who won't state a price, wants to get people who buy gear here on Harmony Central to pay more than he's trying to sell it for on CL and generally plays hide the ball with his sale. And then asks where I came up with the $500 price in an ad HE placed?!? Oh and let's not forget letting it be known earlier in this thread that he was selling it for considerably more than the $485 I pointed out a very similar one sold for. Yea, $15 is considerably more. Makes you feel all warm and fuzzy when it's time to buy the item, knowing you got such an up front, good deal.
And just for the record I actually was generally interested in this guitar and had you simply and honestly just come on here and said you were asking $500 firm, like your CL ad, it would probably already be sold.
