    Is Reverb any good for moving lower end stuff? I kinda get the sense that most of the people looking for cheap, used Ibbys and Schecters are probably just on ebay, but I dunno if that's actually the case.

    I've sold some cheap-ish shit ($200 - $500) on Reverb before.

    That said, the new policy Reverb has of pulling the fees out at the time of the transaction rather than a month later is a lot bigger of a deal, to me. Those ebay fees always seem to show up at seemingly random and are somehow always higher than you estimated they'd be, but it's so far removed from the actual sale, you're not sure it's worth pursing.

    Yep. I've bought and sold a lot of standard pedals there, as well as some amps and guitars. Whore, I think, is the word for it.
