    The statement that you could save up to $500 for an overhaul did it for me. Can you do an overhaul for $500 or buy all the tools to do DIY. I thought not.

    "Why pay a repair shop $500 to overhaul your sax (?)"

    Errm... because a repair shop knows what they're doing.

    Let's sit back and see how many 'newly refurbished' saxes get listed that don't even work! It'll probably cost the buyer $500 (at least) to put the thing right.
    F*** the notes, go for the tone!

    Hey, the seller has 100% positive feedback (as a buyer).
    (Neck cork, two saxes, a how-to-repair DVD)

    Hmmm. I have a hunch that the account is hacked. I could be wrong, though. It's just a gut feeling.

    Edit: However, Braelan seems to correlate with Hazel Green, and there are "junker wanted" ads that point into the same direction.
    Okay, admittedly male intuition at work....

    First you get a piece of paper that is 17"x11" and the appropriate colour. Then fold it in half.
    Oh crap I just realized... Damn I didn't know you meant a metal one.

    As my former boss use to say " You're selling the sizzle, not the steak" Sounds like an e-bay ad with a lot of sizzle and no meat.

    Take a file blank and use another file to file grooves in it.

    Many ways but the ones on the ebay CD were probably made by opening Word, writing some stuff, adding some photos, then clicking Save.
