Anybody see the one on the Weber board?
Sold for that amount.
He ended up selling it for double that after being bombarded with e-mails.
He listed it here also,so not sure who ended up with it.
Here's his post "Thanks to the guys who alerted me to underpricing the Pedal. I ended up
selling it to the 1st person who offered me more.I recieved 15 e-mails
at almost the same time. I got several e-mails alerting me to this and
I sold it to the 1st person who offered me almost double.I know I could
of gotten more on E-bay. I had no idea they were highly sought after. I
guess I should check E-bay and other sources before I put gear up for
sale. I know I could of gotten more but I was happy with the honest
offer I recieved and wasn't out to get as much as the market would bear. I
deleted the ad so no one else would be disappointed..Thanks, Russ "
Funny thing is the person he sold it to for double could still slam that sucker on ebay and make 500 bones easy. I think it is ****** he didnt tell the first in line guy "hey, someone hipped me to the deal here and I can let the pedal go for $350" (no pseudo auction etc... just a heads up to the first in line) I have seen Curehardy deal with stuff like this and he is a stand up guy (if he was the first in line). Anyways... Life goes on....
The fact that someone offered more for it off line is wrong, and the fact that he was rewarded for doing that.
I'm sure first in line would have paid double given the chance anyway.
How did the CJOD get to the seller without him knowing about the uniqueness of the pedal??
He was probably the original buyer.
I might be the only one on this forum proud of Russ!! Way to go dude! Way to sell a pedal for what it's really worth . I sold a Way Huge Aqua Puss for 125.00 or 100.00 back when , and am glad I did.. I paid 100.00 for it. That's what it was worth to me too.. Great job not feeding the guys who just make this stuff way overpriced on the used market
That whole thing smelled fishy to me. I call it the "pretend I don't know what something is worth, and then turn it into an auction" sale.
There is no distortion pedal worth $800, or even $400 to me.
What about $375?
I've alerted people on these forums before that they're underselling an item and tell them they could get way more for something. On the other side I've alerted people on this forums and others that they're misreprensting and item being sold or an auction on e-bay that's being falsely represented and being untruthful of the facts, and they ignore it because of GREED. Sometimes it gets the best of people.
Maybe if it was once used by Jimi Hendrix...THEN, I would pay $375.
Why do people feel the need to "inform" anyone of the value of anything? Who cares? It's none of your business, unless you're a potential buyer, then why would you want to pay more. Sounds like some people were jealous they weren't in line and tried to screw it for someone else.
For the seller It's: F-you if you do or don't. Russ is getting slammed for doing what any person would do. He didn't try to get $700 + for the pedal. I really gotta wonder about these online communities from time to time. :NUTS
Thanks for the info on it. I saw it late last night and wondered what was up.
It seemed strange to me that someone that has such a rare pedal wouldn't have some idea that it is worth(?) a lot more.
Hopefully whoever got it did get a good deal and a good pedal.
People get worked up about the silliest ****. Ya get bashed if ya ask $800 or ya get bashed for offering too little
You guys are kinda freekin me out.
Its a done deal....no need to pass judgement on all parties. Move on....
Russ, I think your the seller....I wanted to know why you sold the CJOD. Being you didn't know the value and all the hype. I was curiuos as to what you thought of the CJOD? What guitar and amp did you it play though and what made you decide to not keep it. Thank You...
If a seller posts a price they are happy with, leave it alone.
Seriously, no need to ruin a good deal for someone by
pretending to be a good samaritan. There is nothing wrong
with a buyer getting a killer deal every once and a while.
I'd be pissed off if I agreed to pay a sellers listed price,
and they backed out because they were informed it
was worth a few bucks more.
Keep your sour grapes out of my deal, and mind your own.
