    he's interested in buying a pedal of mine I have listed for sale for $20.... he asks if I'd be willing to trade anything... I ask what he has... he says he has an ovation guitar.. I told him sure I'd trade a pedal for his guitar (no brainer).... then he says he can offer an "awesome name for a band" instead... I told him I already have a band name and we're already doing pretty successfully... he then replies, "Well if your band is so successful why do you need a guitar.".... I reply, "I don't need a guitar, I own 9 of them just trying to make a deal" I then said never mind I'll only take cash and invited him to come see us open for Blacktop Mojo on 2/1.. he hasn't replied now

    I only got back on LetGo yesterday and this is the first person to send me a message

    Tell him no, you want the Ovation, just so long as he’s not talking about an Applause. If it is a real Ovation, it’s probably stolen.

    In some strange way, this reminds me of a story from about 1974, when a guitarist I knew was trying to put together a band using a small advert in the back of the Melody Maker, which was the national newspaper UK musicians used in those days.

    He gets a response from a guy who claims to have played violin in King Crimson. As this isn't the loudest of instruments, my friend suggests the guy comes round to the house. When he arrives, he has no violin, just a big folder containing 'his music'.

    The meeting seems to be going nowhere, but goes on so long that my friend's wife feels obliged to offer dinner. After this, the guy falls asleep on the sofa for an hour or so. Eventually, he regains consciousness, so my friend points to a song title in this guy's folder and demands: "OK! So how does 'My White Bicycle' go?" Here's the reply...

    "No man, these are just ideas. I haven't written music for any of them yet."

    There are some seriously delusional people out there, and 21st Century technology makes it very easy to connect to them.

    Last week, a guy offered to trade me his guitar that's in the pawn shop. But next month, once he pays the $345 he owes on it, then he's gonna want to trade.

    Sheesh!

    LetGo has been a total miss on trying to sell stuff, but I have found some killer deals there. Many of the sellers aren't guitar people, and they're just unloading stuff. I'm truthful -- I tell them it's worth more than they are asking. They usually tell me they are just trying to get rid of it.

    Throw in the Band name, and we got a deal. But it better be good. The name, and the chronic.

    tell him to meet you in the parking lot of the police station so you know he is serious and not playing games.
