Purchased a Yamaha bass from him recently, and it had to have been the smoothest web transaction I have ever made (except for the post office shredding my payment up - bastards) Buying off of ebay is scary enough, but buying outside of ebay is even worse. Bigbeefdog took the worry out of the transaction with excellent communication all along the way. Always prompt in answering emails. If only he were a store, I could make all of my purchases through him! Thanks again!!!!
