Thank you @pogmoor. That's a very good question. I think that sometimes sellers advertise elsewhere too (sometimes at a lower price) but find a bay placement brings much more exposure.pogmoor wrote:Moved - but who would buy a guitar of that quality off the bay?
You would be surprised who lurks below the surface on the bay. I know more than a few name guitarists/lutenists who, coaxed with enough libations of the tongue loosening type, will admit to frequenting the site and to purchasing instruments from it...high priced ones too. And chances are anyone who can afford the price of this Hauser can afford to go or arrange to have a look at it if seriously interested.pogmoor wrote:Moved - but who would buy a guitar of that quality off the bay?
I've purchased three guitars off the bay in the $4K to $10K range, all top tier luthiers. I got "burned" on the most expensive one, the other two were gems. The expensive one was a 30 year old guitar in beautiful condition, but what a dud, sound-wise! Drilled home the importance of a return policy (this one had none).pogmoor wrote:...who would buy a guitar of that quality off the bay?
