    Are Rosewood Tops a thing?

    I recently purchased an all Rosewood (Top included) Nakanishi PM-10 Rosewood Soprano. I got to play it a few days before my trip, and I thought it was nice. The action is a wee bit high for my best, so I did not play it a ton, but I thought the tone was pretty nice and it was certainly not a...

    It also helps to be able to This, this is why I do not accept PayPal. Given that I have to use paypal to some degree for my coaching practice, accepting Paypal would in effect take 20-25 percent off the sale price. There are many other ways to verify someone.

    1) Ken is a grown ass adult--he can do whatever he wishes. 2) If Ken wants to use Ebay...see above 3) If Ken chooses to not respond to people, they will feel discounted and naturally so (and that has nothing to do with demandingness, it is a basic thing when one chooses such a platform...
