    WTH is a "slug", professional luthier speak I guess. Photo's reversing plates that are properly installed? :scowl:

    Actually in AJ's defense :bag: a chunk of metal (or magnet) like the polepieces like that can be called a slug. Just as a bullet is called a slug. It may not be common, but its valid.

    2 year necro bump? This is deranged trolling at its best. :) Probably should just let it be. :)

    I thank all of you, it drove more traffic to my sites and it increased sales. I set records for the past two years. Just thought it funny that the neck went to Sadowski.

    Rock On my bass brothers, Rock On.

    I highly doubt even one of those sales was from a TB member, unless they were buying one to smash in their Nirvana cover band :bassist:

    Don't care what the reason and at least two dozen were members so thanks to all of you.

    Roger Sadowski (sic), Sterling Ball, and the Fender CS all buy stuff that was built by handicapped kids from you. Yup, I can believe that. Nothing fishy here folks, nope.

    You throw out a bunch of names but when someone asks you to clarify you ignore him. You don't really inspire confidence, and if you are really using 'charity' fraudulently as an excuse for your poor quality goods then surely there is a spot reserved for you in Hell.

    Warmouth necks are usually great - I would guess that the seller is just not familiar with his product or his English skills are poor.

    I'd grab it.

    Well, I sent this thread to Roger Sadowsky, maybe he knows this Sadowski guy you sold a neck to.

    Why can't you answer JACinc's simple question? He knows the famous bassist you say you sold a bass to, why not say what bass so he can ask him about it? If you were legit one would think you'd be happy to prove an endorsement.

    He's not interested in "being legit", he just likes having TB's high-volume traffic driven to his auctions.

    not too sure. better safe than sorry, there's plenty of people on ebay that are out there to rip you off.

    always worth messaging and asking if they offer returns. might lose a bit of cash on shipping if you do want to return it but better than having a neck you hate and a big sum of cash down.

    I get that part, I would just like people to be able to see if his claims are worth the digital ink they are printed on. Without the charity claims I'd let it go but they really raised my hackles.
