Almost a year of being a member here, this is my first time that I received something not so nice in this community. I've done, not a lot but, some deals here that went so well and making me loving this site.

Here's come my first post here ever, so I don't have the impression of "new member & tire kicker" anymore.:huh

There are 90,000+ members here. The odds were pretty good that you would find a grumpy one sooner or later. ;)

Welcome to the other side of the tracks. :)

Thanks, that cheering me up a bit.

And here are my guitar's collection. Not so fancy, but I love them.

The nice American Standard black strat I got it from the deal here. Thanks to Robert Parker.

Nice! The Telecaster will go far in helping you assimilate into the TGP collective...

Sweet guitar! You're lucky I don't ever look at Craigslist, because I live in the Seattle area and would have gone after that one myself.

So you're Seattleite, answered my question of you being so nice. ; )
I don't live in Seattle anymore, but missing it every single day.

I went to grad-school and got my Master from there (at SU)

Welcome to TGP best_inside... Sorry your first interaction wasn't so good.

Nice guitar collection. I like those Bearfoot pedals too - got the chance to play with them during the Bearfoot Aussie Tourbox round. Might get one or two in the near future.

Best of luck in the Emporium with the next transaction... ;)

I was so upset when I posted that, and also English is not my first language. Um...which you might already know.:bonk

I wouldn't worry about the comments. I've managed to piss people off without even trying. Some people would rather just be pissed!

Welcome.

Welcome aboard.

If trading is your thing consider being more active on this side. I'm not saying you have to do anything. Only that I feel a lot more comfortable doing deals with people who both post regularly showing they are part of the music community, and those who put their state in their bio so I can see how far something might need to travel.

I cant swear to it but I'd bet a lot of guys don't respond to for sale posts from members with very low post counts so stay active. :hiP

good advise!

In the Emporium, clear pics, disclosures, and speedy replies, if selling, has a favorable impression. You will get low balled a lot by buyers here.

fortunately i have never been called out by a member but several warnings by the mods did sting!
