I'm happy for you. It is nice when we get a guitar we have been wanting for a while. Tom. :)

Thanks TY...  I believe in karma and everything that i brings...  If it is meant for you, you will be yours. If not for you, it's not for you.  I have bid on so many many Washburn Idol WI64 on eBAY and searched CL for a deal but never got lucky... I am the only person to bid on her so she is mine... a real player that is used in live performances.  :)

the eBAY seller tech.salvage just message me:

"If you refer to the email I sent prior to requesting a cancellation, I outlined why I have to cancel. My equipment trailer was broken into sometime yesterday, I lost about 3k in equipment. I don't have a guitar to send you. I'm sorry if I gave you the wrong idea, I'm not cancelling out of the blue. Thanks."

That really sucks for him, We should all keep an eye out, because there are many scum in every dark corner... I bet there are dirty lowlifes browsing guitar forums in lookout for a sweet payday... I strongly urge fellow members to practice caution and not to provide clues where they live or where they keep their guitar equipments.

Be careful and diligent guys.

-----------

tech.salvage is a class act, he just processed the refund for $130.30 and like me he had hard time with the eBAY website. He mentioned that he may have an idea who dun it... I hope he recovers all his guitar and music equipment.

 Maybe we should have a sticky thread on the forum so that any stolen guitars are listed by serial number, preventing forum members from unwittingly buying someone else's stolen guitar from e-bay or similar. It's so hard to know unless the vendor has no clue about the instrument altogether. Could be worth a try....

that is a great idea Dan. I post on photobucket the serial number and detailed information... except for my location...  I am almost certain thieves browse forums, ebay and CL for easy targets.

Also keep in mind that there are eBay sellers who've been known to cancel a sale that -- through mere coincidence, of course! -- ended in a really low bid. They'll then send a message to the effect "oh, darn, it fell under a UPS truck at the mall just as we were about to ship it to you" or "slipped off table while packing & shattered" or "was taken by an armed gang of professional thieves just minutes after auction close" or... well, you should get the idea.

I had something like the second one happen. Two weeks later, the seller put up an IDENTICAL guitar. Same photos, too. I got them banned from eBay. It helps that I wasn't the first to compain about them.

 Theres been a Padauk N4 on e-bay uk several times now, and the vendor seems to pull it with a day or so  to go and then try again a few weeks later only to do the same again when it doesn't go above £450 or so. That vendor is doing this regularly with several products, and with the fact that he also sells body blanks and decals and such make it difficult to trust whats real when there are loads of people building N4s from parts.
