Ok..so call me mad....last year during lockdown I saw Ads on Facebook from in indie guitar maker ( he's a forum member) who was struggling to make ends meet.
He was raffling a guitar but it didnt reach the target ....I asked him what the target was and it was £500.
In a moment of generosity....well sort of...I offered to act like a Pawn shop in effect...I have the guitar ....and give him £500 on the strict basis that he will buy the guitar back " in a few months"....we did do an email to clarify the facts and term....I know its fraught with danger !
Anyhow ....upshot is...its been probably over 12 months now , he's actively selling guitars and Advertising and responds randomly to emails....with things like...."sorry mate, I'll sort it tonight"....then of course nothing.
TBH Im not that fussed about the money and I do have a guitar though its not brilliant.
Whats would you do from here on in?
I could hound him on social media , but thats not my thing really, even though he seems to be an arse.
Or just tell me Im nuts and should never have got involved ;-)
