I find it frustrating that despite all of the unanswered questions on his auctions and numerous people reporting them, for the most part TM are just leaving his shady listings up

Some of you appear to know this Rod Capper, so why don't you direct him to this thread - might give him a different perspective on his relationship with this "goldplated" character.
Gibson 335, Harmony H671, Epiphone Riviera & EJ200CE, Hagstrom Viking Bass, Doubleneck bass/guitar.
Rivera Clubster 45, SWR California Blonde, Carvin AG100D, Ashton BSK158.

Great idea. May be better him seeing the collective 'feedback' from all of us rather than contacting him on an individual basis, should at least make him take a step back and think

Not so sure thats a good idea - that might lead to the loon himself coming here, and thats the last thing I'd want!
you JUST KNOW some Tory wanker has thought of this idea already. Probably getting the inspiration whilst fucking a dead pig.

As said before, it appears Rod has fallen for this dude and given his permission. Obviously he doesn't realise what character he is dealing with... I have not seen his response to my email so a person who knows him well may be better positioned to alert him.
