    might be for all I know but it isn't a Custom Custom......I'm not making a statements about Mark as a person but disclosure is important.......

    I've seen way worse wiring than that. It's actually a lot tidier than most n00b jobs I've seen.

    Did you give him a chance to explain himself before you posted this thread?

    ratherdashing, no I did not: perhaps I should - if that is the etiquette then I will be glad to remove this post and post an apology. However, I am not sure how you can explain the fact that what I was offered was an SH-11 and what I got was a TB-14 - with or without the magnet swap. Also I don't see how you could - assuming you had tested the guitar out - know that there was a severe wiring issue that resulted in chords dissipating after a short while into a buzzing noise (and no, it's not my settings on my amp )
    if i had been offered an amateur wiring job and a modded pickup on a squier tele i would probably not have gone for the exchange. of course, that is water under the bridge now. if there was an "unhappy with my deal" thread perhaps it wouldn't seem as severe as calling someone a "bad trader"?
    i guess many people have been happy with trades/deals/purchases with Mark - this is one instance where someone is not.

    i should mention that i messaged mark twice earlier tonight to ask if he knew about the wiring and also about the pickup.

    I would just like to say, in my defense, that the guitar funtioned just fine when it left my house, And was my #1 untill I had parted ways with it.
    The pickups were advertised as a custom custom and a pgn. The bridge pickup is a tb-14 (for string spacing) and has had a a-2 mag swap, ie: custom custom. Sorry if i mislead any one in any way, as that was NOT my intentions. I have had many satisfactory deals with the fine folks on here, and I wasn't ever out to screw anyone. -Mark

    Mark - apology accepted. I certainly wasn't thinking or suggesting you were trying to screw me over. I was just annoyed that nothing was mentioned about the pickup...

    It is , in fact, still a custom custom, no?

    No hard feelings, man, I just wanted to have a chance to explain myself, and/ or have a chance to make it right.

    lol - is it? If I was to pull the pickup out and sell it on eBay should I sell it as a Custom Custom or as a modified Custom-5 with Alnico 2 magnet?

    Any way - no worries. What's done is done.

    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" <shckltnebay@aol.com>.

    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.

    I sent his pedals back. One needed repair, one was a multi-fx that needed a power adapter. I was trying to resolve those issues before sending a mint condition guitar out.

    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 had the same experience with Texas Swamp.

    A lot of deals going on behind the back without any notification. I won't be doing any deals with Texas Swamp again.

    Don't trust this pantywaste.
    No need for name calling. You didn't confirm in any way and someone else paid in full right away.

    edit: Let me add to this and say this guy is berating me in PMs and being very offensive and downright rude.

    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.

    This dweeb said the p'up was lying around for two years, but it can't have the common courtisy to wait 8 hours for my response.
    I have no respect for this pinhead.
