So that's what it means for a bodhisattva to forgo enlightenment.
This is 100% true. The guy eating pizza while ordering a Ti bolt kit from Nashbar.
Ok, back to guitars.
LOL. And just maybe perhaps you were also joking, as the difference between a (non vintage) Epiphone and a Gibson dwarfs the difference between 8 lb 2 oz and 8.2 lb, both in quality of item and expected price range? ..and made me lol, once for your post and again seeing the response (and now a third time). Thank you.
appreciate that. I tried to PM you directly to clear that up but apparently that's not an option with your account. Regardless it was inflammatory and dramatic. I mean if we're gonna try to be civil let's be civil, if we're gonna let it all hang out, i'm completely ok with that too but... if you're gonna dish it out, you better be able to take it.
8.2 lbs is 3719 grams, whereas 8 lbs 2 oz is 3685 grams. Which is it?
Appreciate that. That's useful info. I can respect that. I guess my perspective is...i have a real job that takes up a lot of my time. I'm not a guitar store and i don't have all day to field random questions and if someone is already getting nitpicky before they have even played the guitar, it's just going to be a PITA. i'd rather just do the "hey come play it, if you want it let's do it, if not, go to a guitar store" Where you can pay twice what i'm asking, + sales tax to pay for their customer services, inventory and patience.
this is why i don't sell on Reverb. Local, face to face, no BS. I price stuff fairly, i don't like to haggle.
Anyway - thanks for your genuine reply to my genuine question.
When buying a guitar over the internet, without playing it, I'm going to ask specific questions and if I feel like my questions are being avoided or the answers are vague, I'm not buying.
When selling a guitar over the internet, when someone asks me a question I'm going to answer it.
Yeah When I bought my R-8 the dealer marked it 8.12.....was it 8lbs 12 oz or 1.3 oz. I know I played the best the best sounding D chord I ever heard so could care less. people ask and I go IDK. But ambiguity drives me nuts when exactness is possible or easy. better yet just go 8/2 8. lbs 2 oz. Easy simple no confsion and requires no more typing or writing.
16 years latter I still don't know....my guess is 12 oz.
If its on ebay or reverb, you're best to figure out exactly the weight if you've mentioned it at all.
All a a buyer needs is a little discrepancy that could read either way to get you slapped with some return shipping fees.
Private sale? You're all good.
Guy posted a bit of humor, as a sideline to your issue
Very woke of you not to get it
Similarly, answering the question posed with the recognised units i.e.pounds & ounces instead of bringing decimal to an imperial party would have saved you the extra work in posting about it for some back-slapping affirmation
None from me, if that needs clarifying
Tell him it’s light
Can someone do a restocking fee?
Where's your ad, I'm looking for an 8.2 lb R9
If I can shave an ounce off every package I ship this year, I'll save something like 300 bucks in postage. Ounces count! Hashtag. oZct!
They make these headless ergonomic Strandberg guitars that weigh under 5 lbs.
Or these weigh around 4 lbs.
2 oz = 1/8 lb or .125 so it would be 8.125 on a digital scale.
8.2 on a digital scale is closer to .25 or 1/4 lb so 8.2 is closer to 8lbs 4 oz
WTF is a pound?
...'bout that much.'
I'm sorry I didn't realize you'd be upset when I asked the question.
Not caring about 1.2 oz might be not caring about 1/16" somewhere else. Just checking.
