As international as our forum is, it might help to point out you are selling it from Florida, USA...

Yes, thank you Diki. Also since my link didn't show up, must be forum rules I would guess, here is the item number on ebay. 192251363814

I'm selling it for $699 and was used only a few hours, in mint condition.

I really don't know why the eBay link won't display... I tried to put it in myself and got the same result. It is possible there's a filter, but I didn't place it. You might try one of those URL reducer sites tinyurl.com to see if that sanitizes it.

Please do us a favor, to keep the forum tidy... Post when it is sold, so I can remove the thread.

A friend of mine who does a lot of eBay business helped me sell one of my G70's late last year. One thing he said they REALLY like to avoid lowering your seller rating is photos of the actual keyboard, not stock photos from a catalog. It's one thing to say 'The item may have some signs of cosmetic wear, but is fully operational and functions as intended.' but another to SHOW what there is, any wear and marks etc..

You reduce the risk of the buyer returning it when wear and tear is beyond what they are prepared to accept. Win/win...

Thank you Diki, but as I stated in the ad it is absolute mint condition. Not one mark on it. In a case like this it shouldn't make any difference it seems to me. I'll think about it but I have sold hundreds of items on ebay in the past and was in music retail for over 30 years. Not that I know everything :silly: . But I just don't see my personal pics where you really can't see much of anything will help.

Seems we have two narratives on the page, then. On the one hand we have the 'The item may have some signs of cosmetic wear, but is fully operational and functions as intended' then we have your 'it is absolute mint condition. Not one mark on it'

You see how a buyer might get confused? :evil:

yes, I know. Unfortunately I marked it used which it is although the rest of the description is incorrect. The other choice was to say it was new which of course it is not. Not that that stops everybody from basically lying and selling used as new. I used to have fun with people who were obviously not dealers who said their item was new and i'd ask them if they were a dealer, and then listen to them sputter. haha

Anyway, I can't change it to new now even if I wanted to. That's an ebay thing, they don't always have all the right stuff available.

I still might put up some pics as you mentioned not that anybody could tell anything from it. ;)

This, as my friend explained it to me, is why it is well worth good quality shots of the actual item. That way the buyer has visual proof that YOUR description is more accurate than the boilerplate blurb eBay insists on when you say 'used'. B)

I have no reason to doubt you, Scott. We know each other. But hopefully there are many, many others looking at the ad that don't (in a good way!). A set of user pictures rather than a catalog shot will hopefully help make them pull the trigger on a very good deal!

BTW, never hurts to include a cheap stick with some of your third-party styles on it, sweeten the pot! I even threw in an SRX card and CF card when I sold my G70. Added value!

Yes, Diki I always used to include a ton of styles when selling on ebay, but that was for Yamaha of which I have a zillion of. I do have some cd's or dvd's with a lot of Roland styles BUT since we moved I have no idea where they are. So, unless I can download some someplace that won't happen.

Do you know any places where I could download a lot of styles that I could then include??

Thanks

Scott

Post up your email (name [at] domain [dot] suffix format to foil the spam bots!) and I'll see what I can do.

Mind you, at this point, if you can't add any more text to the ad, it might be moot.

I just checked, it looks like I can add to the description. If you want to that would be great. Thanks Diki.

actually, now that I look at it I may not be able to change the description, Ebay rules are real easy to figure out :S

I may actually end this and relist it. I'll let you know

Hi Diki

I've decided to relist the BK5. Would you please send me some styles/goodies that I can include in the package? I would really appreciate that. I'm sure that will help and will set it apart from the other listigs. This is the first time that I have tried to sell a keyboard without lots of styles included but as I mentioned while I have some Roland styles someplace I don't know where they are since we moved.

Thanks again

Scott

Don't forget to tell who you sold it to about this site... No doubt they will be needing help soon! B)
