    Reverb is pretty good, C/L is close and yet more risky.

    I go Reverb on most everything these days. Sold 3 good guitars last month and all smooth transactions. Even when transactions are a little strange, just turn it over to them--if they bless it, you're golden. I had to refund one transaction due to a completely bogus complaint in my view, but I just went along with it and Reverb facilitated the whole business. Buyer paid return shipping and I got my fees refunded, so the pain was minimized. They make it easy for the seller.

    Reverb all the way, no real issues. I've sold tons of $100-$200 items, and maybe 6-7 guitars in the $2k range.

    Especially for the high dollar stuff, I've found the key to a smooth online deal is to craft a great listing, with high quality photos and a detailed, honest write-up. I use the Make Offer option, because it starts the conversation with a person who is likely to buy, but I price tight, so I only come down maybe 7.5%.
