Being a buyer and seller on Reverb, I don't know if this will help them or not.

We've used Reverb in the past to sell gear, but never bought anything from there, that I remember, although I look all of the time. Got stuff from Etsy, too. I suppose they are kind of similar in concepts, anyway.

That's exactly what we need.
A web based company that specializes in knitting and crafting supplies to take over online guitar sales.
:roll:

People have been predicting the end of an era for guitar based music for a long time now.
This is what it looks like.
It's not exactly what we expected, is it?
LOL

(tongue is only HALF in cheek)

Thanks BMW-KTM. CME is a favorite place to visit for gear in Chicago. I would miss it if it were gone.

If you should ever visit Chi-town Mike stop in there. You will be a happy guitar player among all those guitars and amps.

I've bought some Rotosound medium scale flats for my violin bass from Chicago Music Exchange, since they actually had them, and offered free shipping. They often have a lot of cool stuff for sale.

It sounded great tonight and I was just using the basic patches. Funny thing is the seller
had the "make an offer" so his price was $190 & free shipping. I offered $100 and free
shipping. He came back with $100 and actual shipping....so $125 in all and it sounds great!
