    I would like renew an older thread regarding fraudulent postings of Monette horns eBay. I ran across a suspicious ad recently that didn't jive with the language that we usually understand. I wrote to the seller several times and got 'funny' answers. He returned my messages and wanted to make a deal outside eBay. He also listed himself as a "private seller" whatever that is. I then wrote to eBay and after three (3) times they finally took the item down. So just a little warning.....be very careful about 'Monette' sales. These guys a kinda slick but not very smart........PD

    Deals that are too good to be true, generally are just that.
    The only cheap Monette is a fake or stolen. They get top dollar used so there is no need to give them away.

    Not all are fake, just most of them... If you're looking to get a used Monette, your best bet is Thompson Music
