I know it's annoying when links to guitars on ebay are put up here but...

Y'know it's actually alright when the poster makes an effort. Like a proper title, shortened links and a picture.

I'll be keeping my eye on what that sells for. Looking to sell mine soon.

at first glance, they look like they're both from the same seller.

nope. just two arseholes who take the pictures sideways.

i think gavin's right. i don't mind links, if there's at least some thoughts or pictures included.
we can all look at ebay on our own.

one of my pet peaves is logging onto some IM, and someone keeps sending m links to everything they come across online.

I hate it when I go to other forums (I'm looking at you offset......... or am I?) and they have threads that go on for pages of text about some inane topic. it's amazing what a picture or two will do to brighten up a thread

Sorry I didn't have time to think about making the thread look nice or shorten links etc was in a medical rush. However I thought that someone who hadn't been browsing ebay for the past few days would be happy for the links. Bugger, I was wrong.

you were in a medical rush, and bothered making a post? sounds like no rush to me.

i wish i could appreciate the thought, but being from the US, UK ebay links for those two guitars are for a very select few. like, we're talking 2 people.

plus the title makes it sound like we need to be wary of these links. which, aside from being two of the ugliest in the vista series, i don't see any cause for alarm.

The cause of the medical rush is in fact going to see my mother in hospital, although I shouldn't have to explain that shit to anyone just for putting up some links. I'm sorry I did but if it helps the two UK people here then good, if not forget it.

This is being blown out of proportion.

At least he put a caution in the title, unlike most people who put something very unspecific that causes me to look at some UK ebay ad that I don't care about.
