I hate that "not as described" garbage. Just like the Washburn I almost bought - not even close to what was pictured in the advert - and that was from a big retailer, not an individual.

Paypal will take care of you Rufus. I had an issue with a seller and they were fantastic. Resolved within 4 days.

OH NO!!!!! Sad Sad Sad : (
What happened? how different was it?
Not the same one as pictured?! SadSadSad!!!

Grrrrrrrrrrrr!

The pic must have been retouched, as the bidy was damaged at the neck joint.
Also, the neck was scarred, and a fretwire was protruding.!

No doubt my friend Alan could have repaired it, but even so, I felt that I couldnt patronise a liar!

So I said, Tongue and, :x and now I'm Sad

So I'll now remove the "gleeful" tag, (which changes with my mood, as I'm sure you realised).
