I have done, and they've responded, in what seems a genuine way, that they'll look at 'how to do it' .. I posted instructions :wink:

about 2 or 3 years ago we used to get the wankers listing those shitty miniature guitars in the guitars section. Being the grumpy old bastard I am, I complained about every auction for about a year. It kept me busy, and some of them got removed to the 'Silly old bastard, dodgy comemorative plates and Franklin Mint' section.
So, is that low alcohol or no alcohol at all? mmmm, no alcohol, do you want to try it? Noooooooooo.

I don't think the seller has a clue what he's talking about, rather than being duplicitous ... :shock:

I'm getting less patient with cluelessness as the Internet age marches on. This dude would just have to google fender "pr 204" and the answer is in the first hit. It's not rocket science. If I'm expecting someone to pay $450 for something I'm going to make an attempt to give them decent information :roll:

On the other hand, it's the clueless who usually give us great deals, and since those are few and far between on TM these days, I think you've got your wish.. :roll: :cry:

Let's not also forget that just above the model number is the model name of the amplifier....
