Actually, looking for opinions. Please be nice even if you think I made a Richard Cranium move. I saw a strat on Reverb that I was interested in (OK, strat - first mistake!). He didn't have an offer button so I sent a message and said, "Hi - I see you don't have an "offers" option. Are you set on the price, or would you consider an offer?" He answered and said, "Hi. With the perfect frets and all parts included and only 50 shipp. Im good. Sorry my man. : )" I sent a message back, "I don't blame you. Thanks for getting back to me. Good luck with the sale." So the guitar goes in the sold category, then comes back, then goes in the sold category again and comes back. I'd really like to buy it, but at $2,000, there would be almost $150 sales tax. So I send him another message and said, "Hi - do you have this listed anyplace else, like strat-talk? I'm interested, but I'd like to avoid the $100+ of sales tax. I think paypal protects buyers and sellers regardless of where an item is purchased." He sends me back this really snotty email and said he's done and takes the guitar down so it's no longer for sale. Too bad because I was ready to buy it regardless. So who's the Richard Cranium, him, me, both of us, neither of us? Full disclosure - question posted on another forum too. EDIT **** What I didn't say was that after I got the snarky message, I sent an apology. He answered it saying we're good, but the guitar is still off the market. I'm moving on, not that I have a choice. CLARIFICATION *** Some people seem to be hung up on the guitar rather than the situation It's a Nash strat. Every one is unique and the price is right in line with all the other similar Nash strats.
