I have been doing business with a guy who has a musical instrument shop. I have bought and sold a lot of stuff from him over the years. He has also sold a bunch of stuff of mine over the years. Anyhow I had an amp of consignment with his store. A month or so ago I went into his shop as I do on occasion. I did not see my amp so I was happy that it has sold....or so I thought. "Bob" was not in the store at the time so I called him to ask him when I could pick up a check. Well "Bob" lent it to a buddy to try out with his band. Bob assured me that he would take full responsibility if something happened to the amp. "Bob" is a good guy and I know he would honor that statement. Still though I expressed my displeasure. Luckily the guy ended up buying my amp and it never came back to the store. The other day I took a bass in for him to sell on consignment. He liked the bass a lot and asked me if he could play it at a gig in a month if it did not sell. Like a fool I said yes, but I will call him back tomorrow and say no. There again I trust "Bob" and he is a friend, but I just don't like the idea of my stuff leaving his store unless there is money in my pocket. What say you?
