That is a nice looking instrument..... did it come with a hard case?  How long do you think it'll take to teach the Cat to play it ?

Re: Buyer Beware

If I have to keep it and not get reimbursed I will put it on top of my speakers to remind me next time I buy off the web to make sure it is what I want

I was thinking you could perhaps get a meerkat to join the band.

Re: Buyer Beware

Russell

Here's a new verse for the Pawnee Creek song  smile

I had a woman long ago up on Pawnee Creek
she loved to touch and admire my physique
well her fingers were sexy,  long and very thin
but she left me when she saw  my tiny mandolin


smile   Have a good one !

Re: Buyer Beware

Jim...here am I sitting in my studio/study/writing room/music room/computer room/junk room laughing my socks off at the last line of your new verse for Pawnee Creek. Ann who was watching her programmes came in to see what amused me so.
I'd love to hear Russ perform it, with the mandolin of course...

Re: Buyer Beware

Jim I love your last line a good addition to your song it gave me a good laugh.. I take it that a small  mandolin is a new  medical term for a body part.
Russell I guess that mandolin was made for  leprechauns to play on Saint Patricks Day.

Re: Buyer Beware

On a follow up I contacted my bank and signed some papers disputing the charges to my account, I also revisited the page where I first seen the mandolin and there is nothing on the page that says this is a mini or miniature item, not to scale etc.. very misleading Ebay sent me a follow up refund page with a little hitch they want additional funds for shipping it back thats when I decided to let my bank handle it. I will never shop on ebay again.
