    Based on the question, I was expecting to see something more... naughty. Very disappointed.

    When I do rob CL buyers at my own home address, I'm very careful that the weapons I use in the mugging are not in the picture.

  2. That looks like the top of an old fashioned wooden toolbox with a tool (a screwdriver or a chisel) leaning back against the handle:

    Well maybe you're right but like a flash light, it becomes useful where the sun don't shine. :whistle:

    The OP needs to enquire now that it's a thing. Otherwise this is wasted bandwidth

  8. "Oh GOD, not only can't I even find a step in this picture, but I'm truly terrified that some CL shyster will try to dupe me into buying an amp that he ruined while trying to hot rod it. The screwdriver he used is sitting right there in the tool box. In plain sight! Does the 8 ohm speaker work with the head? What if I ad a 4 ohm cab? NOOOOOOOO!!!!!..."

    Don't worry about it. It's a 75 and loud.

  11. I have to just shake my head and wonder about people who are apparently "horrified" by guns.

    Pigeon-holing gun owners as lunatics or bad in any way is no different than disliking someone for the color of shin that their genetics awarded them.

    It is ~for now~ a free country, and that means others are still FREE to do and own what they want to, even if you (and by "you" I mean people in general, not the OP specifically, so don't get butt-hurt) don't like it.

    Back on topic, it is an umbrella in an umbrella or coat rack, or some such piece of entry-way furniture.

    First thing I noticed; even before looking at the amp.
    Looks like an entry hall, and the brown object is probably a stand alone coat rack with hooks and a shelf on top for hats, gloves etc.

    (rolls eyes)....yee haw

    The point is this: if you need indicators in a photo to check for things like guns at a random house, you are naive.

    If in doubt, expect every house in the US to have a gun.

    I've sold gear via CL and been forced to use this, on occasion...

    Yep, and it looks like one of those high capacity ones with the full auto switch to open the umbrella. No one needs an umbrella like when hunting deer or doing target practice. It has one purpose, stopping rain drops dead in their tracks!
    Just because Gene Kelly uses one in a movie doesn't mean everybody should have one! In fact look (last 40 seconds of the video) how fast Gene ditches the umbrella and slips it to the hands of an accomplice once the police show up...

    Yep, I'd avoid this craigslister or at least bring a bigger umbrella with me if I visit his house and be prepared to use it if necessary.
