I recently took a hit on a banjo purchased from Bill's Music in Maryland. (Ebay user ID: billsmusic) The photos , strategically provided to keep undisclosed damage hidden, did not show obvious, extensive damage to the interior of the banjo. Contacted the seller who claimed all sales were "final with no returns". Not the kind of folks I want to do business with again.
"Hello Steve, Just receive the Vega Tailpiece. Thank you very much, it is in such beautiful condition, I am over the moon with it. Kindest regards, Rainer"
"Steve, Got the Tailpiece today. Thanks much!.... regards, Steve W."
"Got the cover today, Thankee....You know the coolest thing though ? The Irish Spring Box you put the cover in. I was carrying it down to my office sniffing the outside box, trying to figure out the scent. Too Funny.....Thanks again. Regards,Steve "
"Steve: The package arrived on Wednesday (in record time) and the banjo tailpiece you sold me is exactly as described—in excellent condition. Thanks again for your outstanding customer service. I deal with banjo dealers and people who buy and sell banjo parts from all over the world. In my opinion, you are at the very top in this business. I hope you continue in this enterprise for many years to come. Best regards,Walt"
