That's some listing.

Asking price $3,879.
Location "A Great Lake State".
Local pickup only.

Well, I guess if you're ready to pay that much, it isn't too much trouble to fill out the contact form and find if he's in Rochester or 1000 miles away in Duluth, and you don't need to worry over much that someone else will snatch it away before that's sorted out.

It's been listed several times. Would be nice to know where it is located.

So it is listed as local pickup only, but I will work with the winning bidder on shipping options."

"I AM ALWAYS WILLING TO TRY AND HONOR SHIPPING REQUESTS."

Sort of dumb on the seller's part keep it hanging but if someone told them "I won't bid on it without knowing.", they might do their homework. At that price I certainly wouldn't risk it.

And I live in "a Great Lakes State".

I wouldn't pay over $2500 for that.

That thing has been up there for months.
In that condition, and without a predetermined shipping plan, they're asking way too much.
Since there is no mention of it, I expect there is no case so Greyhound isn't even an option.
Not even sure what a Jumbo case looks like.

Well, that far I'm with him - that's the way to do it. If you paid the better part of $4K for the biggest model sousaphone ever, the like of which will apparently never be made again, you'd be a fool to try to ship it UPS - or Greyhound. But my casual impression has been that freight costs vary a lot. Maybe it would be a good idea for Tubenet members to compare notes some day on their favorite freight carriers and costs of shipping a pallet (more useful than the usual score keeping on whether one of the package-mashing services managed to deliver your tuba intact, anyway.)

But "local pickup only, and I'm not telling where"? that's just butt headed.

Just noticed it has a "Best Offer" option now.
I don't think it did before.
Who's gonna bite?! : )
