Reverb guitars

Anyone ever buy a used guitar from Reverb? Almost looks like EBay.

I have used Reverb a couple times and both were good experiences. I decided to return one of the purchases (the guitar needed a lot of work that was not described in the listing) and the seller took it back with no problems.

Reverb is an excellent resource for new and used stuff. I've bought a few things on there and had no problems at all. Mostly pedals and accessories. But never had any issues.

@Triple-o, I have only purchased one guitar on Reverb but I have also sold two on it. I've also purchased a few smaller items.  All transactions without incident.

@Triple-o  I've purchased two guitars and sold one on Reverb without any problems.  I contact/message the seller about things not listed to get a feel of the seller based on their response.  I always keep the adage; if it's too good to be true, it probably is.

Good luck in your search,

Bryan

And Plantsman, you're doing it correctly.  Purchased two and sold one!   I have the ratio all wrong.  I sold two and purchased one!!!   That is just sooooo wrong!🙄🤣😎   What the heck is wrong with me?!?!?!

I've had great experiences on reverb. I bought my acoustic there, a returned Larrivee in almost mint condition. I found a tiny dent that didn't go through the finish on the bottom side. My Squire Mod '51 I also got on reverb. There was a blond model on the site. (The last one I saw for sale anywhere.) I bought it and the seller contacted me. It was already sold. BUT he had a pristine used red model just in if I was interested. Heck yeah! Red was the color I wanted.

Reverb has been a convenient starting place to watch price trends and availability. I've watched PRS Starlas since I first saw and heard a core gold sparkle model 2 1/2 years ago. I knew that someday I would get one. Although I had what I needed to learn to play, I recently bought a 2010 gold sparkle starla on reverb. The case is a little banged up--I knew that--but the guitar is in great shape. (I love this guitar. It's better in all ways than I thought it would be!)

When Sweetwater was blowing out their Blackstar 10th Anniversary amps I checked items for sale on Reverb. Yep. Great sale. Same with the PRS SE custom 24 on sale from Sweetwater.

The vendors bent over backwards to ensure the purchasing experience went well.
