Reverb - Musician's Marketplace?

OK, so admittedly I have been out of the loop on guitar buying the last few years due to my right wrist arthritis, but having had (what I hope was) successful surgery in February to fix that I am hoping to be playing again soon. So I'm looking for guitars

So, I am seeing this website in a number of places, what's the story? Is it basically an eBay but just for instruments?

I've only dealt with them reverb once. They were selling clip on tuners for $3 with a limit of 1. I emailed them and explained my situation and they let me buy 10. The delivery got messed up and they were very quick to help and get everything right.

I haven't bought or sold anything yet but I have been having fun shopping around the site. Nice interface, good search function. The site is run by Chicago Music Exchange. They charge lower fees than the 'bay.

Peace

Re: Reverb - Musician's Marketplace?

Glad to hear you're on the mend Jim and ready to get strumming again - I hope you get to post a NGD soon I've surfed the Reverb site but I haven't bought anything...at first glance it looks better than evilbay...but I've only made a few purchase on EB so I'm not an expert...some of the prices on the Reverb site look okay...probably not as good as some of the deals that come up on CL here...I don't know CL is like there but the music instrument section on Vancouver CL is incredible...today there's already 450+ postings...

Re: Reverb - Musician's Marketplace?

Seems like a decent site... Like someone else mentioned. I just took advantage of the $3 clip on tuner deal. My dad uses one for his nylon string guitar, so I got one to use with my acoustic... but it does great for my standard tuned electrics too.

They have a lot more stuff on that site than they started with, so it must be decent to deal with from the seller or buyer prespective or it would be losing ground... my take on it anyway. Saw some sweet older RG's on there last time I looked around.

I was looking at a white Jem505 on there but waited too long and it went to someone else. looks like a decent enough place though. I may grab one of those tuners too if I can find the ad

Yeah, so if anyone just happens upon a white 505 for sale, feel free to shoot me a line My cast is off, and I'm in a huge brace for another 6 weeks - after that it's buying guitars time

Bought a Teuffel off a dealer on the site, no issues.

I work with the guys that run that site. Straight up good people whose intention is to make internet commerce easier for buyers & sellers.

Reverend made their Top Ten searches last year!
