When looking for music gear, new OR used, Reverb is my "go to" site. I can usually find what I want, AND Chicago Music Exchange does a great job overseeing the operation, and providing helpful feedback, when asked. Lot's of good feedback on this one! IMHO, the OP took this way too far, creating an issue when there was NO issue. A Reverb Seller puts a "Make an Offer" button in his ad when he's willing to accept less than his posted price. If there's no button, then there's no negotiation. Period. In a quid pro quo transaction, as this one was, you either accept or reject the stated terms. Period. If you don't like the terms, then move on. No harm. No foul. Don't sweat the small stuff... and it's all small stuff!
