    Yes, and eBay was shooting fish in a barrel, they are such a blatant ripoff.

    Reverb is the online division of Chicago Music Exchange, a really good music store in that city.

    I just bought two guitars this month from Reverb. Much better than experience than EBay

    I sold soooooo many guitars and amps on Ebay over the years but those days are unfortunately over . Made a lot of money but then again , so did EBay...

    And think about it - EBay is now charging less than the 5-6% they were at the height my selling.

    Reverb must have completely destroyed Ebay's instrument sales segment.

    No questions asked money back keep the item returns? Not a chance I'll sell anything there. They could cut their fees to 0%, would not be worth it. They need to fix their policy first.

    Love reverb. Still put stuff on eBay when stuff doesn't sell.

    Are you referencing xafinity's post? I'm not seeing that in there, only that it is a no questions asked refund. Nothing about the buyer keeping the goods as well. Did you happen to hear of this elswhere? If so, then that's it for me with ebay.

    Good news and demonstrates that eBay is vulnerable. Maybe more specialty buy and sell sites will start up because of Reverb's success.

    How about a power tool site? Looks like kelnet would be onboard with that one. ;)
