An Orville for ?100 - And I missed out!

Post by BobK » Sun Jan 12, 2014 4:47 pm

I feel sick.

Saw ad on Gumtree for an Orville, ?100! It didn't have strings or tailpiece. Other than that, really good nick

Emailed the seller 30 mins after ad went up, "sale already agreed, bloke calling tonight"'. The seller only lives a 10 min drive away, so offered him progressively ?120...?140...?160...?180....?200 and would pick it up immediately. ie please do the decent thing and let the guy down and sell it to me. He wouldn't! Jeeez, someone with morals.

2 hours later I still feel ill. I don't think a chance like that comes around very often.
