I've seen a 2002 Stelling Butterfly banjo for sale online for €1000, that's around $1000. The seller is disposing of her late husband's instrument collection apparently. The pics seem genuine, but the price is too good to be true, (unless I'm mistaken, I stand to be corrected!) Should I be suspicious.... I think yes?
In the last couple of days there was a discussion about a Stelling Butterfly banjo and I believe it was regarding a discussion as to its legitimacy. Just a heads up. If a scam, the seller could have changed their purpose for selling to seem more legitimate. Again, just sharing. No clue as to the ad your a viewing.
I asked the sale site to check the ad earlier this afternoon. I looked just now... it's been removed and my text conversation with the seller has been suspended. A scam after all. Nice dream while it lasted!
