A couple of weekends ago, I sold a Classic Vibe Tele on Reverb. I was seriously considering pulling the listing because it's a nice guitar and I was contemplating keeping it. But someone bought it before I could so, oh well, off it went. Shortly after it arrived, the seller contacted me and stated the guitar was damaged during shipping. The lower strap button was broken off and the pickup switch was bent. There were also cracks and dents in the body. I knew it was gonna suck before I even started the process, but now I have a claim with the carrier and needed to submit several pieces of evidence proving value, sales, etc. Of course the buyer doesn't want to keep the guitar so I'll get it back all banged up. But I'm really curious how much the carrier is going to chip in for their mistake. For years I have shipped guitars, amps, pedals, etc. and not 1 of them ever got damaged during shipping. Now that this first bad experience is occurring, it's really turning me off from selling stuff online anymore. The more I think about it, the more of a PITA it is. I almost always estimate shipping to be the wrong price, and it's usually always to my detriment. Plus the whole hassle of boxing and padding the gear as well as traveling to the shipping store is becoming too much of a hassle. So I think I'm done shipping gear. I'll stick to Craigslist to move the rest of it.
