OK, I'll play. Just sent him this message.
Hi al,

I don't want to buy your bass. I have plenty. I just want a picture of it. Nice pic of Carol BTW.

Actually, this is not his original post.
I remember it was like" if you are a fender p or j bass guy, this is not your bass,
if you looking for such and such, this is not your bass," and it goes on, you get the gist.
If you look closely, the Carol Kaye signature pic is address to Al something.
Man, now I even more curious about the look of the bass.

I messaged him and said I know what an L2K looks like, so I don't need any pictures, but can he tell me the colour, and which neck profile it has

Seller is truly a knob, or getting kicks from toying with enquiries. My exchange with him ...

"Hi Mark. Your questions at least display genuine interest. However, neck profile is a specific term relating to curvature more than nut width. Both of which are standard spec. And readily available online. May I ask, why you have bothered to ask fairly reasonable questions yet disqualify yourself by messaging via gt?"

************************

"Hi Al, I was referring to the fact that G&l offer a range of necks as options. I've owned several and it's a common thing to ask among G&l owners.
https://glguitars.com/guitar-options/

But thanks for the reply even though you didn't answer either of my questions. Good luck with the sale. "

*************************

"As I said, answering via gt messaging disqualifies you. That includes answering questions with any degree of specificity. Good luck with your journey, Mark. "

Ha! Some of his other ads make good reading too ...

https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-seller/al/ ... 992/date/1

"I'd be willing to post it. However, that would be far more risky for you than for me."

His Ibanez Artist advert -

"I've long sold my Fenders and Gibsons. But held on to this one because I hate it so much. You'll hate it too. Gibsons are so much better. Respect and nourish your G.A.S. Go for a Gibson. Better yet, ESP. This guitar is really terrible value for money. Looks bad too...really fugly....I mean it. People will laugh at you. Please call or text only if over 40 and interested in losing money. Highest offer accepted. P.s. I also have a really unpleasant, judgemental personality."

^ Here's mine.

He is wrong I feel no need to "return fire".
Hi Russell. You have a GSOH. And like that you recognised C.K. I'm currently taking a morning tea break in between cello and sax practise. I empathise with you. So, I'll write you a lovely long letter. After practising the sax, I'll be joined for lunch by my former mentor, at which time we'll discuss our 2021 European tour of a commissioned work. Neither of us can do it sooner on account of former engagements. Both artistic and personal. When I say personal, I mean business transactions such as the buying and selling of property (real estate). It may seem ironic, but the more success that I enjoy, and the more property that I buy, the quicker I want to be rid of all the low and mid priced equipment that I gathered around me at a time when I was less successful. It is also ironic that the less I yearned, the more I got. And the less I needed money, the more grants I was given. I come from a working class family. And I am a little uncomfortable with success. Or it might be more accurate to say that I am a little uncomfortable with having not been born into success. So, maybe, I stored those pieces of junk out of sentimentality. But now they just queasily remind me of former struggles. I have been where you are. Being a gearslut, hanging online, making quips.....The more you do, the more comes out of it. At this point, you may feel a strong impulse to 'return fire'. The ego will defend itself to perpetuate whatever state it is currently in Xxx
Happiness is .......a Telebass and 500W.
