Blackmailing in Ebay Violin Description...

Looks worth more than $200. Usually when a seller claims naivete they are full of it. In this case, I am optimistic that the seller can be taken at face value.

The signature is pretty stupid though. Boo.

 

Wood quality looks good, but the drawn on purfling is very poorly done. Wondering if it was maybe done at a later stage?

 

And yea, the signature might just be a "graffiti"-like thing. Dont think any maker or restorer would do that.

I found this recent question and answer at the bottom of the listing.  Is he threatening the buyer or himself?

 

Q: The violin will you be able to sell the violin and the shipping for 200
A: NO For gods sake the shipping is extra Please don anyone else ask me this or I,ll just take it offline and smash it to Bits Lowballers everywhere....

 

 

Something like the bank robber screaming "Don't move or I'll shoot myself!"

LOL...almost makes you WANT to ask him again... :ph34r:

 

However (to be fair)...I have an acquaintance who was giving away some old lawn furniture (serviceable, but bulky to transport).

 

The people who said they'd take the furniture also wanted it professionally cleaned, delivered and set-up... :rolleyes:

Is weed legal where he is from? Might explain his behavior... Either that or he is very bad at blackmail.

 

Im wondering if he really thinks someone is going to say "Oh please no" and buy the violin....

Not yet,  it took awhile for gambling to be legalized again- weed will take longer to be accepted.  His Craiglist add has a phone number and he's about 50 miles from me but I have enough violins.
