Does anyone actually look at the "Wanted" classifieds?

  2. I do. But when I do, I am looking for something very specific and usually do a search. If I am looking for another bass, I scroll right on by the listings which are above my price point.

    I do occasionally, but my gut feeling is it is not used as much as it could/should be.

    I once posted that I was looking for a cream colored Dimarzio Model J and got a couple of responses right away, but neither of them sold it to me. :(

    @diegom ,
    It says I don't have permission to see the post you linked to.

    To answer your question about the Wanted classifieds, no, I don't normally look at them.

    I see zero posts in "Wanted: Bass Guitars, Amps, and Accessories."

    Wanted Roland GK-3B hex pickup

    Looking for a Roland bass pickup to resuscitate my VBass.
    A GK-2B, in good condition, would also be considered.

    Yes, I look in there occasionally, and I've sold some parts and accessories over the years as a result. I've never sold a bass, amp, or cab through the "wanted" section.
  10. The one time someone actually replied to my “wanted” listing, they told me they wouldn’t sell me the specific item I wanted to buy unless I additionally purchased an accessory for it that I had no desire or need for. That was a weird one.

  11. I never look at the wanted classified,never look at at the classifieds period.

    There's no point. I live in Scotland and TB is 90% USA.

    Yes I've scanned it and found a couple of buyers, if not for my own pieces, but to put buyers and sellers together where I knew a sought after piece was located.

    I asked for some pickups in there one time, and got a response which resulted in a purchase.
