what a mook.
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.
So, you had a TGP member drop by for a visit?
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...
People are about stupid sometimes, lol... Add in the INSANE amount of entitlement that almost everyone has nowadays, and you've got a crappy cocktail...
I've endured barbs and quips over my Squiers and Peaveys over the years that you wouldn't believe, lol...
But sadly, "real guitarists" like you and I are often put in the difficult position of having to forgive ignorance... and occasionally just plain ol' STUPID and MEAN people...
It's HARD for me sometimes, but it's more sad... Stop and think, they actually go through life like that...
The older I get, the more that I think of snobbery as ignorance...
Well said, Pop!!!
Dam! I cut my hair now I aint got nothin
I have a high dollar amp a Rivera cluster, I also have Blackstar id30 transistor amp. what ever you play the magic is in the fingers and practice \
LOL what a first degree jerk!!
When we used to gig, a long time ago, I used a Fender 212R , have never owned a " real " amp.
You know, no one ever came up to me and told me I don't have a high end real amp.
Some people told us they didn't like our music, which is ok, I guess, but either you like the music or not. The equipment is a very secondary thing.
Now I play and jam with SS amps.
Man, I've seen some guys play magic with the cheapest of amps.
No point in getting into the SS vs Tube debate, the guy is obviously an A hole.
