    Not a hockey fan. Not a cricket fan. Like many Americans..my family got kicked out of some other country and ended up here a while ago. But the speculation of my nationality was entertaining.

    Never buy from people like that, as you probably already know. He reminds me of the guy that has been sitting on his LP Custom Pelham on eBay for a few years now - just a total ...Richard. :iough:

    I've sold a ton of stuff online. My simple rule is that the photos and description tell the whole story and answer every imaginable question before they ask. Doesn't always work, but it does keep the dumb questions to a minimum.

    I've sold hundreds of guitars and amps on eBay, Reverb, and forums. Bought some too.
    After a while I learned who to deal with or not. I could tell just by the way someone communicated with me. A red flag would get a total block from me. I didnt want to deal with a-holes or nut cases.
    I wouldnt have thought about trying to buy that amp just based on his crappy listing.

    You post this telling everybody about a nasty seller and possible scam. I don't get why you can't give us the link. You're protecting and helping the bad seller. That's wrong! Appreciate the warning, but with no help to us? Then don't post it!!!

    it isn't a warning, though is it. It is a "Weird shit happened to me" thread. Not defending OP, I think he should help out the community and post the link, if I was fired up enough to post this I would, but that is just me.

    I think the OP is acting out of principle. Sometimes it's better to move on than act out of spite. I'll admit to wanting to see the link though, lol.

    I use Revrb a lot. No problems as of yet. Knock On Wood.
    Was the item listed as " This item is sold "As-Is" ?
    Why would you even go there if so?

    I usually don't buy used amps online, especially from a site with no or limited feedback. I hate paying EBay fees but the Feedback function does afford me some extra security. If I'm looking at anything online with a no-return policy, I don't even consider it. Also I don't trust the shipping companies handling of amps. Unless you're looking for some kind of boutique amp, you can usually find a pretty decent selection locally. And you also get to play it. I other words, this guy's a dick, move on.

    If you take good pictures and write good copy there are no need for questions. They mostly come from people with no money anyway.

    I had a guitar up for sale, asking $2000 or best offer. Dumbass sends me a message:

    "I don't make offers. What's your best price?"

    Me: That's not how this works. I am asking $2000. If you don't want to pay that, it's your responsibility to make an offer.

    I think in future I'm just going to state that my asking price is FIRM.

    Oh and for the record, we Canadians spell things with a U correctly like colour, ardour, armour, etc. :)

    I get where he is coming from a little. I've sold around a hundred guitars online. I've sold zero to someone who has the first question; "What's the weight?"

    That's the official tire kicker question in the online guitar selling world. A few times I've responded, "Whatever you want it to weigh." They aren't buying it so it doesn't matter.

    WEIRD MLP User...sucks us all in with this great story and then won't give us the link to see this fine amplifer. Starting to think this might be a work of fiction Jk but seriously give up the LINK LINK LINK. Or at least tell us which amp it is and I'll go find his ass for the boys to play with
