It is funny, and well worth going back through the history, but I don't think the complainant is all in the right. I don't know how come he stumped up $70 shipping though - that's just barking for what looked like a fairly tat acoustic in the first place. No way would I give a full refund including shipping and let someone "throw it in the dumpster" just on their say-so. HST, my few sales have always pointed out everything I can think of wrong with the item. Might lose me a few quid in bids, but I don't want the hassle of complaints and refunds.

I'd agree with that 1BL . The seller did offer him a complete refund and half of the return shipping. I like to browse the for repair or as is auctions to see if there is anything for an odd part or two that I may need or want .THis one caught my eye. I think it's buyer beware on ebay anyway .
How much do you suppose it cost him to run that auction with that price? Isn't the fee a percentagge of the asking price?

That's also true, myfoot. A $50 sale can mean a $47 take after PayPal. Then eBay sends the seller an invoice and whips another $3 off. Pretty soon, you wonder what you made on something you put up.

I'm not excusing a seller from offloading known tat with dodgy pics, but buyers who demand a "full refund of everything" and refuse to return the item don't see the whole story. I sold an Impact 60 amplifier and the buyer was in Texas. Everything turned out fine, even though some screws came loose across the pond, because I did a decent descn and the buyer was also decent. Still; it could easily have turned out badly if he were unhappy, simply because the shipping was such a large part of the total. Always a worry for me, that part.
