Hi, just thought I'd start a discussion. I don't know if I like or dislike the business model... and I like the guy and his videos (somewhat). For those who don't know, Trogly has a YouTube channel where he "reviews" guitars that he had purchased. Usually the guitars are purchased at a discount on Reverb (the recent Reverb thread here made me think about it) or CL or FB or even new from retailers, and then he reviews the guitars (takes them apart, etc) and then posts them on Reverb again. He clearly posts the guitars at a higher price for a profit. That is just buying and selling... so it isn't really a big issue, but the more I think about it... he clearly buys a LOT of guitars and then flips them after her makes a profit off his YouTube channel. In addition, he has the natural sponsored materials, etc which he also makes $$ on... my question is about the fact that he likely scoops up guitars for flipping. Again, not really illegal or anything, but as a regular guy looking for a guitar it kinda blows to have guitars bought for the sole purpose of flipping (oh, and he uses his YT channel to advertise the guitars for sale on Reverb too). To be sure, he seems trustworthy and honest. Maybe I'm just jealous of his buying and selling strategy and wish I had thought of it... LOL. I always get irked when I watch one of his videos and he talks about wanting to "document" a specific guitar, like he's doing real research or something. LOL. Ok, carry on EDIT - removed "slimey" as that was probably too harsh.
