    Thanks, mate! When (if) I can get my dream LP, I'll be sure to have the good people here check it out too. I'm no good at identifying fakes.

    No, Reverb won't take a second peek, and they shouldn't. The seller hasn't broken any rules. He's not obligated to answer any questions.

    Most individual sellers on Reverb don't take returns. I don't; I'm not a store. And yet I have perfect feedback, and so do all the individual sellers I've bought from.

    It could be that this seller doesn't have a clue how to present an item for sale, or it could be that he regarded the questions as a red flag that the OP might be more trouble than it's worth to him. We don't know, b/c the OP refuses to provide a link and doesn't say exactly what he asked the seller. That makes me suspicious.

    Hey I Break Things, when the day comes that your ready to buy your LP check out Mark's Guitar Loft. He's an outstanding seller! You won't be disappointed!

    Don't think his request was unreasonable.

    My best offer is $100.

    Been in that exact same situation before. I replied with;

    “MY best price? Well, the best price for ME would be $2200 but I don’t think you’d want to pay that. As far as the best price for YOU? That’s for YOU to figure out and let me know.”

    I also have perfect feedback... and I don't refuse to answer questions about items I'm selling. You're not the Lone Ranger, bud.

    "Well, I might have been a buyer if you had answered my questions. I'll go be a buyer for one of the many other sellers who write good copy, post multiple good photos, and treat potential buyers politely."

    What the bloody hell is that supposed to mean? I didn't say I refuse to answer questions, I just pointed out that it's not required and that the seller isn't breaking any of Reverb's rules.

    I can see a situation where a prospective buyer asks so many questions that a seller smells trouble and would rather not deal with it. That may have been what happened here, or the seller may just be weird. Either way, the seller isn't doing anything wrong. The OP's refusal to supply a link makes me suspect he's the problem or that his story is fiction.

    I believe this lays out what the exchange was

    I believe this lays out why I am not posting a link. No reason for anyone to troll the guy.

    You are correct. The seller has not broken rules. Hence no need to post links for you to troll. But 1 pic and a 3 line description(nice amp, great condition, sounds great), and no answering questions?? Really???? I gave enough clues in ref to the amp that if you are resourceful you can figure it out. Go for it. Best to you.
