Why does next to nobody on this site use the buying/selling forums? Im on a ton of forums and this has a pretty big userbase but a very small percentage seem to use the classifieds section?

Its just that you get so much more bang for buck going used, it makes little sense (IMO) to buy new when it comes to guitars.

What do you guys think? Why is the classifieds empty? Young userbase?

I've used it once, but that was more because I spotted something local by accident (I don't surf the sub-forums, I only ever click on "New Posts").

UG international for most people to make good use of it for gear ads, you can find better deals on your local ebay/craigslist/gumtree.

I bought something from an UGer once

I disagree, most of the smoking deals I've found were off forums. I just think too few people use the classifieds on this forum which is why there are no deals here. Ebay can have nice stuff pop up from time to time but prices are shooting up higher and higher as sellers try to recoup the 10% final value fee now.

I can't afford to buy anything, from anyone.

And I say UGer as well

Yeah, what are we meant to sell on there, massive licenses?

Who even really has one of those? Ableton Live Lite CD's would do a booming trade though

Why would I buy something from UG when I could go to ebay and find almost everything I want at a killer good deal?

You cant find a lot of high end customs off ebay, as they tend to hit forums first.

Mostly because shipping/receiving/paypal/international selling is way more of a pain in the ass than just looking at local classifieds for half an hour and meeting up in person later that day for a cash transaction.

I'd say the average forum user is quite a bit older than that

well whatever the average age is, it's not enough to have a thriving classifieds section with expensive gear like talkbass. like I wonder how many users here are homeowners vs how many on TB are homeowners. or even just how many live with their parents vs how many live independently.

Yeah, a lot more specialised forums.

UG is so broad that it really isn't wroth selling stuff here (and people who buy your stuff browse those other forums also).

i use it, not as much as others, but i've done my fair share of buying and selling in the past, from things like plectrums to guitars. mostly buying, but the occasional selling... i'm selling something there at the moment actually, it's not guitar related, it's a digital camera, but that's beside the point...
