Blessed is he who expects little for he shall not be disappointed.
You can educate ignorance but you can not educate stupidity.
Technically it is a custom custom. If you were to sell it on ebay then i would disclose the fact its a custom 5 thats been converted to save you any hassle incase the guy gets all upset over what it says on the baseplate.
Im not 100% sure about this but i think all the customs (custom, CC and C5) are the same wind with different mags.
Stay away from Ebay user shackleton1, email "Ebay Eric" <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
He contacted me about an item I had on ebay, acted very strangely, asked for my email, asked me a laundry list of questions (my PayPal address being first, suggesting he was ready to pay), and then decided he didn't want the item at the last minute for no real reason. Don't buy from or sell to this kind of tire kicker. Keep your distance and BEWARE.
Just created this account to try to warn people about user Dominus. He is selling a few things here right now. I traded several items to him last month for a guitar, and while he received his items, i received nothing.

Those that have come to the Forum just to bad-mouth have been dealt with.
I'd stay away from Texas Swamp.
He backed out of a deal with myself
and another forum bro on the same item
at the same time. Grow up Daniel.

I think his message speaks for itself. Totally unreasonable guy. Very hostile and immature about the whole thing. I understand being frustrated, but there was no communication and no payment.
I know this is a message about how I'm a bad trader, but take what you will from bluesbends responses. His PMs were 10x more inappropriate.
Sour grapes bluesbend. Did you tell him you were going out to chop wood for 8 hours? Someone stepped up with the $$ first. You snooze you lose. Happens all the time. Stop your whining & get over it, it's only a friggin pickup.
To me a bad trader is defined in the very first post of this thread: "If you've been ripped off or misled in a trade, post it here!" Neither of which happened.
He didn't steal your money and he didn't send you something not as described. As a matter of fact, there was no trade & no sale so to me he's not a bad trader. I would deal with him before I deal with you simply because he has a better attitude. Time to grow up.

I'd be dealing with bluesbend any day of the week over "pantywaste" as he knows the value of ones word.
BTW you're telling him to grow up when he is 51 years old
Skeyescraper on E-BAy. Not only a rip off artist, but an insulting jerk to boot. I don't think I've ever had a more insulting Email sent to me than the one this seller sent when I asked a simple question. God forbid a buyer wanting to know something.
