  1. This is now back up for sale after a strange experience with another Basschatter. He PM'd me saying he was keen to buy it, we agreed a price and a time and place to meet up, took details to send a deposit. No deposit, no further communication despite messaging him a couple of times to find out what was happening. Maybe there was a problem raising the funds, would have been nice to receive a reply - hope he hasn't met with an accident or something! Will go on eBay this week, price negotiable.
  2. This is going on Ebay tomorrow - the price is negotiable, if anyone is interested make me an offer.
  3. A well-know sales strategy to generate activity.
  4. For sale is my Rob Allen MB2 4 string, which I hardly ever play now I have my Deep 5; and having just acquired a Mouse from the illustrious Frank-blank I feel it's time to let someone else have the pleasure of this lovely bass. It's in excellent condition apart from some peculiar marks on the headstock which may be from the pads on my Tuner, haven't tried hard to get them off for fear of doing more harm than good. Comes with hard case, collect from Epsom Surrey or will deliver or meet half way within a reasonable distance. Spec is: Flamed Maple top Alder body Neck - Eastern rock maple Cocobolo fingerboard and bridge Made in 2013 34"scale
  5. Thanks Ped, I was thinking you could just get it to sort the items not marked as Sold to the top of the list, but I guess you would need some sort of additional status field for that, which may not be possible with this software.
  6. I may have this wrong, but I thought all the sellers had to do was mark their goods as Sold. If that's the case then even if they all did so we would still have exactly the same problem as old unsold items would still be way back in the listings - or is there more to it than that?
  7. Thanks for responding Ped. I can understand why it's a good idea to retain the Sold items, and I do sort by date, but that still leaves items that haven't been sold or bumped sometimes several pages back in the search, which necessitates ploughing through the same sold items every time. However from the response so far the answer to my question seems to be YES, I am the only one who finds it a problem.
  8. This thread has gone into a completely different orbit. My original point was: we currently have 6 sort criteria on the forums (or is it Fora?), some of which are probably almost never used. Would it not be possible to add one more criterion to enable users to separate the Sold items (or those that are marked sold) from the as yet Unsold items? I was hoping for an answer from one of the Administrators of the database, and perhaps anyone else who thought it would be a good idea?
  9. Hi, I can't be the only Basschatter who begrudges wasting time ploughing through entries in the For Sale forums that are already sold. Would it not be possible to put this in the Sort criteria so we could have all the items not containing the word "sold" at the beginning of the list?
  10. Thanks for the feedback guys. I did get some other quotes from £400 to £1000+ which didn't seem like a great investment, and having claimed over £20k on my house insurance last year for burst pipe damage I didn't want to go down that route either, so I think on balance I made the right choice.
  11. Hi, I ended up taking it to a local guitar repair workshop who said they could repair it but could not make it perfect. They were right. To be honest it doesn't look an awful lot better after their repair, however it is now sealed and smooth to the touch (believe they filled it with Superglue and sanded it down), and they only charged me £40. If you want to see photos it's now up for sale on this forum.
  12. That's what I thought, turned out to a lot easier than I expected. Could be your next challenge!
