    I mean...this really is pretty simple. From homepage go to whatever category you want at the top (i.e. "electric guitars"), then click "view all listings" and click the "used" box. Takes less than 10 seconds. I think it's all pretty well thought out.

    Some sites that have loads of inventory are designed to navigate through a search vs just browsing every listing on the site. Netflix is similar, not fun if you really don't know what you are looking for because the huge amount of content. I think Reverb does a pretty good job of managing things but everyone is different.

    Reverb is about as easy as it gets for guitar shopping.

    yup. search is the overwhelming path for nearly every e-com site because customers generally have a starting point in mind for their visit, and making sense of a super broad selection (like used guitars) is very difficult.

    that said, from an e-com and digital product perspective, i think Reverb has done an outstanding job at building and iterating a platform.

    their editorial content, buyers guides, explainers, and videos should be textbooks for other vendors.

    Reverb gets it pretty much spot on as far as I'm concerned. Easy to search, easy to navigate. I can't really see what the problem is? The left hand toolbar make it incredibly easy to filter down to what you're interested in and there are features like search by decade that Ebay doesn't have.

    Frankly I'd be better off if they made it a little harder to give them money.

    To me Reverb is far easier to use than EBay. But I’m sure some people might feel differently if they are used to one platform vs. another.

    I don't see the problem.

    the only thing i don’t like about the reverb website is that looking at a listing messes up the order of your search. it’s like it shuffles the search when you look at a listing. can be confusing especially if your search contains a few hundred items.

    The problem is people love complaining about nonsense online :)

    Click your mouses's scroll wheel or right click, open in new tab. Problem solved :)

    I’m sure the guy you’re thinking of who posts here is both a web developer and a very senior manager at the company who can and will make unilateral changes to the site at your request.

    LOL, yeah they're going to redesign a major part of their site just for you - classic & funny as hell! As everyone has said their site is as easy as it gets so if you have a problem navigating that site it's you not the site.

    Customize your feed to taste. Then make that your bookmarked starting point. Easy peasy.

    I think perhaps the tone of your thread title might have been a spark. Sometimes asking a question can come across differently, for example "does anyone else find this site tricky to navigate?" Just my 2cents, and worth less than that.

    I've only ever searched Reverb using the mobile app, and it's pretty easy
