    So i've been tearing up craigslist and the classifieds and every website I know of looking for a used SR506.

    I have found one but they sold yesterday,a nd my mom just found $115 of mine. So she was too late and I lost the sale.

    Anyways, back to story, how do you go about finding used gear? I'm really getting a GAS impulse for that thing. I need at least a 5 but I like 6ers and I was wondering if there were any procedures to finding used gear.
  2. I use e-bay, and go to pawn shops

    I look on craigslist, go to music stores, pawn shops, even talk with other musicians about what I'm looking for.

    I'd do the ebay thing but I'm very strict on playing a bass before buying it. I took a chance once and bought a Carvin and hated the tone of the bass so I refuse to compromise on that anymore.

    GC has a really good used site, but it is GC so you have to know what you're buying because they won't.
