X390PW - looks nice

Post by Guest on Mon Jul 25, 2011 8:07 pm

didn't I just mention wanting a 390 with the old school logo?

If I didn't just buy the Session II, I would be all over this one.

Just the 'W' on the headstock too.

AH!!!! That's the old logo with the super cool font! cheers This thing is gorgeous, we've been waiting for one like this to show up.

Ice, although I REALLY WANT TO make an offer on this thing, I'll relent for you to take it. Go get this thing man! The Lord will bring me mine one day.

I have a nice X390PW w/Kahler that I would gladly trade for an X350MA with TOM/STP.

A price has been agreed on. The seller has assured me he will end the auction early and but for the payment it is now mine.

Remember WB, the original one haunting our home does not belong to me. What a Face

Chad... now you have a reason to get your butt to the 1ST WestoneFest. I suppose failing that I could always gig it out if you ever get up this way... Wink

Fingers crossed, gentlemen...

Well fellas, this guy may POSSIBLY turn out to be a scammer. I will know more later today and post an update tonight.

Wish me luck but if anyone is bidding you may want to hold your cards another day yet... No

let me guess.. you made a bid for XXX amount, and he was good with it until he saw the interest in the bidding, and now says he wants to wait to see the highest bid?

Well here is the upshot at this time...

Yeah Sarc the auction action is part of it. The other part is he is now saying someone "out of the country" has made him a higher offer that does not include shipping costs.

He has stated he is in a bind for $$ right now and though he feels badly about it he is going to revoke his end of out agreement. There were some troubling signs yesterday though...

I spoke with him twice and the last time he was suddenly requiring a money order from me and would not reply to my emails, phone conversation only as well. He wants to now keep ebay and paypal out of the picture.

I suppose I could sense this was coming. He now wants to think more about it, still says he doesn't want to ship it abroad but thinks he should see more than my offer for it.

I'm going to take one final swing at this and then I'm done.

Just a thought....

It seems unlikely but if anyone here is the overseas party and really wants it that bad please shoot me a pm.

No sense in us beating each other up if it means that much to you.

yikes - doesn't sound solid. If it were me I would stick to ebay for this one - at least there is some form of insurance if it goes bad.

Well guys my tent is packed and I'm heading home.

His final reply basically told me it is all about the $$ to him now. I told him and will repeat it here that I did not agree with it but I suppose I can understand it. He apparently has financial difficulties at the moment and wishes it was different, but he still will be going back on his word.

I have been very blessed in my life up to this point in that I have never found myself in a place of having to choose between my word and money, and pray that will always be the case. So the lowdown for any still interested parties is...

My initial offer about 14 hours into the auction was basically $775. We agreed at that initial email and phone session on him closing the auction, sending a few added pics and i would get back to him by 9 AM CST with us proceeding to exchange info for the transaction.

Emailed him the next morning confirming my intent, followed with a phone call at noon.... and then it got turned sideways. He still would close early, the guitar was still mine, but he wanted either a money order or I pony up additionally for paypal fees, then ended with it being a money order only. But hey, still mine.

No answers to emails all day until this afternoon, late....... now the auction is over $560, an overseas buyer has offered $850 and he said he needs the "peace of mind" of knowing he sold it for the best price.

Like I said, I don't agree with it but I understand it. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

So if anyone else wishes to go at it go ahead. You will not be stepping on my toes. I hope you don't get sent through the same hoops I have jumped through.

That's what happens when someone is trying to sell inside and outside the auction. I got burned on a 390 last year with a deal. The seller then went on to get high bids on this forum at a later time, while simultaniously running an auction. So in those cases, someone always gets burned. Thats why when something is on auction I don;t try to make a side deal - if I get it - it screws the bidders...but if a bid wins , then i get screwed.

In this case, i assume he will get more than either outside offer since a lot of people have their ebay searches saved to include the 30 and will probablt get bidded around a grand.

Sorry for pain Ice, I've been there. I'm thinking the way to get this one is high bid.

seems like a pretty shady character, trying to play both sides of the fence here. he wants access to ebay buyers, doesn't want to pay for the service.

to me, it looks like there might be a couple shills in this auction driving up the price.
