So I found two things I really wanted on craigslist last week, and was going to pick them up from around the NJ area from people. Laid out plans during the week to pick them up/pay for them on the weekend.

Was going to get a JCA 50H for $375, and a Marshall 1960A for $325. Contacted both guys, and every time I asked them for their addresses they never responded. Made plans twice with them and got blown off. The JCA guy I decided to forget about and just ordered one online today. The cab guy I'm not giving up on since its so cheap. Blah...story of my life!

Just bitchin' and moanin' cause I was really looking forward to playing on a new rig this weekend.

You're just now figuring out people are stupid?

Must be young.
Everyone is entitled to an opinion.

Feel free to express yours so I can make an informed judgement about how stupid you are.

When people don't contact you back, it typically means they've already sold it but haven't removed the ad yet, js

Personally I hate trying to deal with people on craigslist.. great deals but very little follow through. Wait till you finally get to talk to the guy and he say's sure come get it.. then you get there and the di*k say's aw man.. I just sold to another guy.. sorry. Talk about wanting to cave somebody's face in! Pisses me off again just thinking about it!

They did contact me back - as in he said 'ok, come grab it on Sunday - we'll take during the weekend' and then no response. highly doubt he sold it, or if he had the craptastic morals to stiff me and sell it when I claimed it first. But who knows.

And yea I feel all of your pain - I've had 3 good craigslist experiences and 2-3 bad ones. And then lets not forget about alll the guys on there low balling or trying to trade an Ibanez RG321 or similar $250 Ibanez for your stuff that was $500+ new.

Don't forget when you're offered a "Fantastic deal of a trade" for your guitar, and that fantastic trade is usually one of the following:

-Line 6 Spider III
-Line 6 Spider IV
-Ibanez GIO
-Squier Strat
-Oh, can't forget the almighty Marshall MG halfstack.

And they offer you these because "You won't get any better offers" or "There's no way you'll get that for your ___"

The last experience I had was great. The guy came to my place to look at a distortion pedal, left with an Epi LP, MXR Wylde Overdrive and MXR Fullbore Metal and I had $600 cash in my pocket. You can meet some really cool people through selling on CL too.

PM me about the 2x12 as well, I need one if its closed back. Especially if you're willing to ship, seems like no one is these days.
