Dave Mustaine sold a bunch of his gear on Reverb. Then a d-bag flipper bought it all.

    Can we get a title change? Something like "D*ckhead gear flipper buys Dave Mustaine's gear to resell at a more expensive price". :lol:

    Well if you watch his YouTube video he has plenty of good reasons why he did what he did. All of which are dumb as shit, and only a dumbass wouldn’t be able to see through his bullshit.

    I love how he says he's getting attacked by Russian bots. Sure dude, you snatched up all of the Mustaine guitars to flip them, and it's only bots mad at you. DEFINITELY NOT, you know, the real guitar players who wanted a chance to own a real Mustaine guitar.

    He'd be that clown ass dickhead who'd point out how little you know because, "hurr durr, Dime almost joined Megadeth, but he wanted his brother to drum and Nick was already in the band."

    Yeah, I guess I am a "Russian bot" for calling him out on his shitty video. Dude's as delusional as Hillary.

    Didn't say his prices were expensive. Was saying the dude jacked the price up. The fact that Mustaine's prices were reasonable make this dude's move even more assholish.

    Yeah. Dave's prices were very generous and you can tell what his intent was, and this wasn't it. Dude is a snake and I hope this shit catches up to him sooner or later. I can't think of a nicer guy for it to happen to, either.

    Because some idiot saw Dave's cancer treatment fund garage sale as a way to cash in. You know, as you do when you're highly unscrupulous.

    Well let's not forget he still needs to sell them at high price. Not sure if this is easy task. He could very well end up stuck with guitars that Dave never even touched (I havent read what guitars he was selling so I can be way way wrong here).

    If he's that unscrupulous, he'll certainly hope and hold for news of death if it seems at all possible/likely in the next few years

    That's always been a well-known rule of the art/autograph/memorabilia/etc collectibles market, and would almost surely apply here as well.... Hell, remember all the too-long-running police/detective shows of the last few decades? They've ALL had "culprit kills artist to manipulate the market and cash in on the postmortem hype" episodes

    To be honest I didn't think about that scenario since (I could be mistaken) I believe that his cancer is treatable with solid results? But you can be right.
