Many of the trade sellers make a profit on postage. If you don't like then either don't buy or get in touch and tell them you ain't going to cover their postage charges.

If you do buy, then leave low score feedback for postage costs.

I am always happy to offer my opinion whether it is asked for or not......after all that's what opinions are for.

Of course, thanks for stating the obvious. lol!

I will state the obvious as often as you demonstrate moral indignation at the antics of a seller who is doing little different to anyone else who trades i.e. attempting to make a profit (including you and I ).

I have recently found that Asda, Powergen, Sky, BT, Shell etc, etc etc etc also make a profit. I am personally going to boycott them all now.

I will only buy from loss making enterprises and I call upon you all to join me. If our combined purchasing clout then makes these businesses profitable, we will then simply move on until there are no loss making businesses left. On that day we will all starve and freeze to death. We will be dead but we will be morally pure.

Put that in your pipe you big bully!!

I suppose, to be fair to the seller, any one of us could have bid on this originally and this issue would probably not have arisen, just hope whoever gets it this time gets a good deal, I would imagine that the asking price must be negotiable. I guess that we just want to see it in the hands of someone who values it for what it is.

This. And we were given a heads-up, so let's all just move on....

Not to belabour a possibly sore point (my apologies up front), but not exactly true John. No

Fotunes have now changed for the better and we all have an opportunity to prevent this from occurring again. Midhilis has taken the time and effort to find a shipping firm he is comfortable with and now is offering international transit. cheers

Encouraging news that deserves to be reinforced with a proper response on the part of those of us who are in the market, the least of whom would certainly be me.

This is really something! We've got quite the episode going down! I'm planning on asking about the x390. I can't afford anything that expensive, but maybe I can work something out. Advice, as always, is greatly appreciated.

Also, good point Iceman. I'm happy he's willing to do overseas shipping, but I still remember the anguish of reading that he made that decision after he sold the 390 that I tried to get from him. Sad

Also when Jeremy Clarkson described Gordon Brown as a "One Eyed Scots Idiot" he was 100% accurate.

But..... Jeremy Clarkson's an idiot! One idiot calling another idiot an idiot?! What's more, Clarkson's ranting and raving may have a little more gravitas if he didn't have quite such a privileged upbringing....


.... Just sayin'....

I agree, but a second idiot calling the first idiot an idiot, doesn't cancel out the original idiot.

Its the law!!

If you are interested - It is known as "Hoax's Law of Primary Idiocy."

It is a bit like Grogg's Faraday nonesense only it has a stronger basis in fact

PS Check the Wanted Threads as the Irish Fella is at it again with a left hand drive Thunder.

Thought that you would like to know - apparently it is "rare"

It it not a spat.

A spat is when you say that there are Faradays running around your guitars and I point out, quite rightly, that there are no such things as Faradays and you are making it up to appear clever.

The spat really comes into play when, despite all the evidence, you insist that your guitars indeed are equipped with Faradays, when we all know that this cannot be the case.

Well, I contacted the man behind this and it was quite interesting. A lot of tossing around how I don't know what I'm talking about. He tried hard to come across as a Westone "authority". Needless to say, I didn't strike a deal. haha

Also, he mentioned several times that British pounds were "real money." I thought that was a little odd and stupid, if I may say so here.
