I didn't take any offers, because I was a little offended by the disregard the potential buyers had for the "List price is final" written in my description.

    I suppose I should have listed it for more than I wanted so people could have felt like they won out on a negotiation.
    I almost always list for at least $50-$75 more than what I actually want and check the Make an Offer button. Every item I've sold has gone for at least what I really wanted to get out of it, and a couple for more. I got a full price offer on one guitar that was $100 over what I was hoping to get out of it. You've got to play the game, but fortunately, it's pretty easy to win.

    Ugh, I hate the game. I always list higher as well, so the other party can "win" some.

    I know the feeling. I despise buying a car and always feel like I got cheated. I don't haggle, though. If the offer hits the price I've got in mind, I accept. If not, I decline. Same thing when I'm buying from someone. I offer what I'm willing to pay. If they accept it, we do the deal, if not, I move on.

I've got a First Act and a 10-watt Line 6 amp, would you trade for either? )

    No, I stopped using them as well but did know they were charging now. I have pics on my computer and phone. Iím selling all of my EBMM and SBMM guitars and basses except for the breast cancer awareness bass. For some reason though I canít add photos anymore on here and even if I pull images from posts that Iíve made on forums that I can insert the image info between the [img] and then the photo address in here, [\img] it still wonít let me.

    Iím getting good responses from Reverb and also may put them on a few other online instrument sales sites.

    Outside of local sales (tear....my beloved R7....tear), Reverb.com has been good to me.

    Funny that we are talking about this, I just yesterday sold my wah pedal, I was asking X, they offered me (low ball) Y, I countered with Z, sold! I told the guy if I'm gonna sell it for that little $$ I'll keep it.

    Jay that's so weird PM me a link to some image you have online I'll see if I can post it, I post images all the time with the tags and never have any problems.

    Where are you hosting these days? I just started using IMGBB and IMGur I got an app that let me download all of my pictures from PhotoSuckIt and I just need to clean out the account and delete it.
