  • Apparently I made someone mad today... (CL BS inside)

    This amuses me. Local guy has a 5150 combo amp for sale for $150, which makes me a little suspect, but regardless, I wanted to gain some info. Here are the emails exchanged:

    From me:
    Saw your craigslist ad, just wanted to get some info on the 5150 combo amp you have for sale. Any pictures would be appreciated. Are there any problems with the amp? Has it been played anytime recently to ensure it works? Does it have a footswitch with it? Are you the original owner? When was the amp purchased? Any information you could provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.



    The response received:
    DO I HAVE THE FOOTSWITCH! FOR 150.00 YOU WANT THE FOOTSWITCH? nevermind... i will sell it to someone else. you want to much for 150.00

    My final reply:
    It was a simple question, you might think about finding a way to let go of some of that testosterone. Did I ever say it was unreasonable to not have the footswitch? I simply wanted to know more about it, no reason to freak out. I'm sure you'll have no problem selling the amp, assuming you can keep that testosterone level in check long enough to not piss off your buyer. Have a good day.

    I didn't bother correcting his grammar.

    I'd move on, the guy is obviously a dick and probably a scammer.

      Yeah, I have no intention of buying, even if for some reason he realized he was a dick and apologized. Apparently you're not allowed to ask him questions about the item he's selling, which amuses me. For that price I figured surely it was either stolen or broken, both of which I don't have any desire to deal with.

          Something tells me that 5150 combo fell off the back of a truck . . .

                  He's the same guy who used to post daily in all caps "MESA DUAL REC - WILL TRADE FOR ENGL, KRANK, ETC"

                  Yesterday he had a "like new 5150 head" for $200, and he claimed he sold it to a guy who offered him $150 for it. The guy's full of ****************; he doesn't have any of those amps he's "selling" for cheap - he's just being an assclown on CL.

                      OH MAN...is this the same tool who has been putting up the same one-line posting on the KC & Wichita Craigslists for a month now. I find I visit CL for the sole purpose of flagging his posts whenever they pop up.

                        Are there castors? Oh &.........Does it come w/ the footswitch?

                            This has turned out to be far more entertaining than I imagined. Outstanding.
