    Surely it wouldn't be the strangest thing Steve Martin has ever done.

    Now I'll never get my hands on that awesome deal! I was all set to send cash via Western Union to Nigeria.

    My guess is the actual owner of the account realized they were hacked and ended the auction

    That last ad was interesting. What is a "Mandolin Hand" that Mr. Martin signed?

    So I had to ask for more pics
    My comment to him was :

    Can you post more coastal photos so I can see what I am bidding on? Why would anyone bid on a mandolin based on a sunset photo?

    And his reply was:

    Relisted with another ocean view. I sent him a message asking if he was selling a mandolin or beach front property.

    I might be tempted if it were "foot signed".

    On a related note, the internet has "spoiled" us by making online shopping so easy, use of pictures, ease of payment, etc. Imagine a time less than 25 years ago, believe it or not, that most of the vintage guitar business was conducted by one-line descriptions with no picture ads in Vintage Guitar magazine and various private listings, such as Gruhn's monthly flyer. A typical example might be: 1956 Gibson Les Paul Standard, goldtop, all orig, EXC, shows lacquer checking, OHSC, plays and sounds great, $1750. No pictures were necessary -- everybody knew what a Les Paul looked like! An ad like that was enough for a person to pick up the phone and ask for more info and either send a money order or bank wire to purchase the instrument. Most stores offered 48 hour approval. Surprisingly, things worked great under the old system........
