The notes are B, G, D, F#, E, B, F#, E....with the low B in the middle and the low G opposite of the player if reading counterclockwise....sorry I forget the name of the tuning but all notes are 100% perfectly in tune.
I will be posting a youtube video titled....."halo for sale 6/2/13" asap

Well if it's legit, at least it's a more reasonable starting and buy it now price.

It says in writing that its a B Pygmy..
And i guess its adviceable to use paypal when proceeding with the payment.
Theres also a video on youtube with the title stated in the ad, im guessing its legit.. Buy now has been removed.

"On Jun-03-13 at 10:49:46 PDT, seller added the following information:
B Pygmy Scale....notes listed are from a Korg guitar tuner....maybe harmonic fifths and not actual notes but it is B Pygmy"


I think the seller might be reading this thread -- if so, please introduce yourself.

I asked him if he could tell me the serial number on it. Hopefully I get a response that doesn't say "I can't find it" or "it's not there" like a resent seller has been noted for. :roll:
