    I won't either.
    All I can ask is that I suck a little less each time I pick up my guitar...

    I couldn't agree more. If I sold something, I owe the fees I owe. Just take the damn money.

    About fucking time they did something about that. 10% was just insane, then there's the 3.2% Paypal take (even on postage, which I think is the most criminal part - you should only pay on the sale of the item, you're not profiting from postage costs) making it practically pointless selling some items on there.

    If anything, people seem willing to pay more on Reverb. I sold a Strymon DIG for more than I paid for it.

    Customs do the fucking same... they calculate the fucking Import Taxes with the shipping fees included and then even add VAT on top of it all...

    This might actual tempt me to start selling shit on ebay again. The only way I ever listed anything was by using the reduced final value fees offer as 10% was ridiculous. When they changed it from the sliding scale I think they alienated a lot of non business sellers, which was completely stupid.

    Is this just the US, or worldwide?

    I occasionally go look at eBay for guitars, but I've noticed a lot of the higher end stuff is thinning out.

    Reverb - what in the name of unholy fuck happened to the prices of old Ibanez guitars???
