Red face Don't you hate...

When someone asks you to hold a guitar for them, that you're selling. Then proceed to inundate you with a ton of questions (which in itself is not a bad thing), but then pull a disappearing act come time to buy the guitar?

That'll happen to me everytime...

That's why I'm a bone head, man!

I usually don't ever do that either, but this time? I don't know what I was thinking!

Re: Don't you hate...

That would indeed suck. Ask for a deposit next time maybe?

Rock on!

I've never done it. Basically it will sit until someone puts cash in my hand.

Yeah, I don't do it a lot either, but I figured it wasn't hurting anything to hang out a few weeks. The "blows your mind part" to me were all the questions and constant contact requesting pics...

I just wound up really being amazed (in a stupid way)

I've done this maybe 5 times prior to this, and now I'm 3 & 3!
