    If Reverb catches you asking / telling them to call you, etc. and they suspect you made the deal elsewhere, they will most likely ban your account.

    I don't know why folks think that they can just use Reverb for free. Y'all steal cable too? :lol:

    There's a reason that folks go with Reverb over completely free platforms like Craigslist, Offer Up, etc. You're paying for the curated ecosystem and the huge pool of buyers it attracts.

    The fees seem really high, but it's not so bad when the alternative is waiting months, if that, for what will probably be similar money on a free/more free platform.

    The truth is, unless it's something pretty special, gear is a terrible investment.

    I mean they can ban me, I have no more business for them at this point. I just can't afford to lose that much on sales, and if I'm off there I can't buy things lmao

    I've seen at least 10 listings today that have asked for paypal transfers or trades or stuff that reverb is against so they gotta start catching people or deal

    I worked 90% of this weekend, planning to take Friday off so I could go while everyone else was at work and pick up the local THR10X; but some knob gobbler decided to buy it this weekend while I was working, like a fucking jabronie.

    But the GAS remains unfortunately

    a dude on yt is arguing with me about the alnico magnet version of the black heavens not being tight enough for 7 strings. The best part is he's arguing with me in my demo vid's comments where I used them in a 27.7" scale 6 string tuned to BEADF#B and drop A (I've used them down to as low as F#1 though), they will most definitely hold up for 7 string tunings. :lol:

    the comments on a lot of yt vids have been toxic for years. It's way worse with gaming and weightlifiting vids that I watch. My channel is small enough and niche enough that I haven't had to deal with much bullshit other than one guy telling me to kill myself and that my playing was terrible :lol:

    Oh yeah I do, I've never commented on a video, but just wanted to share that I think YouTube is on the going out.

    Jesus Christ. So I had someone buy something on Reverb. Package it, put it in a priority mailer, label it, address it. Then I get to the USPS and they tell the address is wrong (it is what they had on their reverb page) and correct the zip code. Hopefully these numbskulls just forgot to update their zip code, otherwise it'll get to the wrong address thanks to them, and yet I'll possibly be the one to deal with it and out $110.

    Great start to my fucking day.

    Had to scrape off all the dayglo paint I sprayed on my star refin because it looked like shit. Basically just wasted a bunch of time and paint for nothing. Guess I should actually wait til the temps are above 40F to spray.
