Default carbon fiber on reverb

there is an amicus on reverb for sale. i got the link off here a while back. this thing is still for sale but i have a question. it's been there for while now with some people watching and a couple people made offers. i am watching to see how this works as i know nothing about reverb. so my question is. is there a time limit they can remain for sale ? not interested in buying it, but it's real hard to figure out how that works with no updates. maybe this should be posted elsewhere, but it is Cf so i posted it here.

Currently, all listings are on Reverb are perpetual. Think of it more as a shop, where the products are available as long as they're not sold.

thanks all. I've shied away from reverb except for the lurking because of the scams and adds overwhelming me on sites that i visit. this was helpful to understand how they operate.

Reverb is run by the Chicago Music Exchange, I think they have a very good reputation.
I had one experience on Reverb with a seller who was very aggressive , Reverb jumped in and calmed the waters, my only real experience with them but I came away with a positive feeling for the site.

I agree with Steve, never an issue with Reverb, I think it's ran well.

My reverb purchase transactions (3-4) have all worked smoothly. I think the feedback system works.

I've had three transactions with Reverb and been happy with each one.

The few transactions I have had on reverb worked just fine. As for the Amicus, I briefly tried David Eastman's model. My impression is that it is sort of like a Guitele is to a ukulele, but the Amicus as guitar to a mandolin. It seems a guitar type crossover between guitar and mandolin. I could see a mandolin player having a great time with the Amicus.

I could be way off base, so anyone who has real experience with the Amicus, please feel to jump in and set the record straight. My impression was based on just picking it up and playing a few notes and putting it down because I was much more interested in his X20 at that get together.

Actually, that is not the case anymore. They were sold to Etsy a couple of years ago. I know they have implemented a couple of increases to their "take", but do not know if the service itself has improved or deteriorated.

Iím having great fun working on Eric Skyeís fiddle tune lessons on my Amicus, and it also functions as a brilliant travel instrument.

Sorry about that. I have been having trouble with my hands typing one thing while my brain is thinking something else. You wouldn't believe how many corrections I had to make to even this short post. It is getting VERY frustrating.

I could easily see the Amicus being the perfect instrument for fiddle tunes.

Etsy bought Reverb from CME and promptly increased their fees a while ago.

The odd thing in my case is that I have this trouble with typing, but not with playing guitar or piano. If I did have a choice in the matter, I would have this way since I can make corrections typing if I catch them in time.

Eastman is a fine name. Eastman School of Music, is an appropriate example. However, since your name is Eastwood and it is also a fine name, I will try to proof my posts better in the future, especially when they include your name.
