    A "real" guitar player could determine the value of the guitar, to him, with any amp. When I'm considering buying a used guitar, I only want to make sure everything works and the pots/switches are quiet.

    Yeah, I've run into some strange people when selling gear. I'm avoiding face to face these days. I'd rather just sent it out on Reverb. I don't want to deal with the oddities that people display.

    And you live in a place were a lot of different cultures and people mix up! The odds of finding a weird one are incremented.

    LOL!! He came to look at a Squier guitar but, was upset that there was no, "high end" amp? Not denigrating Squier, at all but, that's "rich."

    I sold two guitars on Letgo and Offerup. Got my money. Didn't give them away but, the number of stupid inquiries is insane.

    I would’ve taken my guitar back and said, “real guitar players don’t need a high end tube amp to tell them if they should buy a guitar or not. A real guitar player can hear the tone through any amp”.

    Classic experience! Glad you got what you wanted and that it went to someone who appreciates it.

    I guess I am not a real guitar player? :)

    I had a guy tell me I'm a s**t guitar player because I wouldn't take a half price offer for an amp I was selling.

    I try to avoid meeting at my house on sales, for such Tom Foolery.
    When I have, I tell them to come to the alley, and meet in the garage.

    I have had the occasional: “I wish I could hear it on a bigger amp” comment when I meet someone at at a remote location using my Roland cube... I keep a Dollar store set of headphones for such an occasion... and enthusiastically say “Don’t damage your ears!”

    Heh, and the funniest part is he is trying to belittle and snob out on him whilst buying a Squier!.

    Most if any comments I get from buyers is something like, nice to by from an actual musician for a change. I think it is the hair :)

    The chap probably believes the twaddle he reads on guitar forums...
