  1. That was a member’s from here that was for sale two weeks ago - did somebody buy it and flip it for almost double what Matt was asking or did Matt sell it on Reverb?
  2. They’ve been rotating a few pedals through tonight, I’ve noticed. Two more have been added in the last hour.
  3. It’s a 1999 bass, not 1995. Wasn’t this one just listed for @$2,500 and then dropped to $2,000 shortly after on the FB site?
  4. CT is actively adding tour dates across the Country (and abroad) to make up for the absence of touring during most of 2020 and the first half of this year. I snagged some 2nd row tickets this morning for the DC show in November, but keep an eye open for something in the Carolinas or vicinity.
  5. Didn’t that tour get kicked back to 2022?
  6. Several police stations near me have designated areas to do safe trades. It’s not a big deal, and makes people comfortable…I don’t see any issues with it.
  7. Just finish checking, not really a big deal. The rest of it looks to be solid - not “Mint” by any stretch, but it’s a clean example. I’d let my quilt bodied custom-ordered Chap Bass go for half that!
  8. A lot of savvy collectors are selling off or have been reducing their herds lately. As we inch closer to the global recession (that was shaping up pre-COVID, and is likely to be a bit worse than 2008-09), a lot of collectors and dealers are trying to maximize their profits and get out of guitar inventory while they can. After seeing the impact on sales and prices that took a few years to claw back last time, plus the ultimate realization that the Boomer crowd will be downsizing and/or heading to retirement communities and the largest portion of the viable customer base will vanish by the time things rebound again, that’s probably the best move for those guys right now.
