    An old saying ! "When something sounds too good to be true, it isn't true "
    My two favorite pastimes are drinking wine and playing the mandolin but most of my friends would rather hear me drink wine! Adapted from quote by Mark Twain------supposedly !

    Same one recently purchased on eBay by someone among us, for an unbelievable low price, of course. Luckily they got their money back. Clearly fraudulent and listing contact information in the ad so that eBay's most basic protections (and somewhat lame security practices... our opinion) can be skirted is reason enough for them to take it down. Expect to see it again. And again.

    Yup a Scam. That buy it now in the one photo is the clue. At one point they had that in the main description. To obvious and got pulled right away.

    The domain-name of that email was registered on 8th October 2020. The location is given as Panama.
    Seems ok to me.

    Maybe it went down and bounced back up again.

    It was me, I lost the Ellis.
    Please, if anyone finds it, pm me and I’ll happily pay the postage.
    If you guys find more than one of them or that old Gibson, send them too.
    No problem. Thank you very much.
