    Are you asking if selling things is ethical?

    I knew a guy once this exact same thing happened to.
    He died ten years later.

    This is why you should stay off TalkBass when you're drinking.

    I think OP is saying that if you have to talk someone into buying a bass, perhaps you shouldn’t sell it to them at all? I think? But isn’t that why we buy anything in the first place? Because we were talked into it? Even if we’re the ones talking ourselves into it? If I can talk you into buying something, doesn’t that make me a good salesman?
