I'm not much of a buyer on CL, unless people will ship things (even in my own city). I've never found anything in the city that's less than an hour round trip, with the potential (this is Pittsburgh - not a grid) of an hour turning into 3 due to surprise weekend lane closures. However, I've sold guitars on CL in the past (not now...will describe why), and sold amps on CL, too. And a banjo. (the last guy who bought an amp brought a friend, tied us up at the house for two hours while he played, and then ultimately bought the amp - but wife and kids got stuck waiting for me and they're not having that again - so the mrs. said no more house buyers, I have to meet people somewhere instead. We did tell him we were in a hurry, but the amp was a two channel rivera amp and he was particular and wanted to experience every sound it could possibly make). (I've had good luck with CL, by the way - better than I'd ever expect, and never a bad experience - I've ignored tire kickers or typical "can you hold this for a week for me" - those people never show up). First guy: * I'm interested in ___, but I'm not too sure about it. I want to come over and look through your other stuff and see if you have anything else I might want. (!!!). He may have said that as a joke, but when you list one thing, and someone asks if they can just go through all of your stuff? I don't doubt he's had success doing that. *Second guy: expensive banjo involved (not sure if the guy got me through CL or banjohangout, he sent me a text, and then a follow-up email). "Hey, I have a connecting flight in pitt international - gets in at 10pm, and I have a meeting the next morning. Can you bring the banjo to PIT at the marriott after 10 PM sunday night so I can look at it?". There was some lead time (a couple of weeks before the actual flight date), and given the cost of the instrument, I considered taking it to the airport, as buyers for $4k used instruments are not plentiful. Dude #2 also asked me to hold/delist the banjo until then (which I wasn't willing to do). I told him it might be possible, but I'd wait until closer to his flight and get back to him. Thankfully, someone from belgium spotted the banjo on a search and asked if I'd ship it to his friend in Virginia. I told him his friend would have to pay through paypal (so that payment and address would match), he did, and that was that. When I contacted dude #2 to let him know the banjo sold, he said he was bummed. After his flight came though, he sent me another message letting me know it didn't get in until 2am. I'm glad to not be telling about the time I drove to the airport to take a banjo to a guy, and sat in the lobby of the marriott for 4 1/2 hours. Ever have any oddball CL experiences that weren't part of the normal tire kickers, scam emails or just outright rude people?
