Look.., there are plenty of "I got screwed by Vince" stories to go around. Some, I hear, have come to fists. I've had my own 'educational experience' at the hands of The Tuba Exchange. But I can't fault a merchant for wanting to make a profit.
If that old worn out tuba was so great, why didn't YOU buy it for $4900? I have a 1980 Ford Pinto someone told me was worth $4900. Want to buy it? Or will the dealer who gives me $200 for it on the trade be a theif, too? If it truly was collector status, other people would have shown some cash by now
