That doesn't bother me. I've had that happen several times on basses that didn't sell right away. I've put a self-imposed deadline on a couple (ie., "Okay, if this doesn't sell within a week, I'm gonna' keep it for awhile.") Then lo and behold, several months later, somebody asks if it's still available. Usually not, because somebody will buy it locally. But I certainly don't mind anybody inquiring about it. What does it take, 2 minutes of my time to reply to them? No problem in my opinion.
But it DOES irritate me when people are selling something and don't respond. Unless they SAY that they'll be out of pocket for awhile.
