I often get the same reply:  well I'm off shopping to spend the same on shoes/clothes/frivolous stuff etc.

She just doesn't get it.
My guitars are INVESTMENTS  Wink 

Her purchases will end up in the bin or the charity shop whilst mine will be worth more than I paid for them. Simple economics.  Well I'm convinced of that anyway...

I used to have a few empty cases around the place that weren't SO empty, if you get my drift.

I just showed her the Prestige 250 and the beautiful top. "It's a guitar" she said.  Bah!

Bizarrely, my missus seemed positively upset when I sold a seriesII spectrum in Sky Blue(turquoise) to GASman, it was her "fave" !
she does'nt play, and nor does she care anymore what I buy, hell....she even bought me a ConcordII.

jealous?

You are a funny guy, Sarge Laughing 

Now, I dare you to show your last message to your wife. It would be 10 times worse if she actually had a sister.

Thanks for the welcome. It's very friendly here, which I like!

I can't remember exactly (but I could look it up when I'm back at home) but I think it was Thursday when I replied to the Gumtree ad.  I might be wrong about the timing as my memory os appalling.

The seller (who was a gentleman) seemed fairly slow to get back to me.  Slow is a relative term as I'm on the computer very frequently and I suppose some people may only check emails once a day (or less).  When we did communicate he explained that I was the first to contact him and that he would give me first refusal (that message was definately sent on the Friday).  He lies about 5 miles from me so that was very convenient.  I tried to visit him first thing Saturday morning but the seller was working all weekend.

He mentioned that there was interest from Sweden when we met on the Monday but I didn't know that he hadn't got back to you.

I can only wish you well in your quest.  Sorry this one didn't go well for you, but I have to counteract that with the fact that it has gone to an appreciative home Cool and it is my very first Westone (and how the hell did I not know about these amazing guitars before then????).

Best regards,

David.
Hi,

Yes, it is very friendly here and lots of nice persons!

Well, I see. The seller just ignored to come back to both me and grogg so I cannot agree on the expression that he is a gentleman. Wink

Thanks! I will keep on searching! But it feels good it came to you friend! Smile
It seems that this nice instrument has landed on a place where it is welcome to stay for a long time and be appreciated! cheers
