Thread: Axe FX 2 on Craigslist

  1. #1

    Default Axe FX 2 on Craigslist

    My eyes opened wide when I saw the title as I thought of the word TRADE flash before my eyes. Trade for many things I have, of course and would include an old van I have. But, alas, then I read the listing: http://miami.craigslist.org/pbc/msg/3385408951.html

    It's like 45 minutes north of me.

    The funny thing is you can get it from Fractal brand new at this very moment for $2,199.95 with a holiday sale going on and $2,249.95 when it's not on sale.

    EDIT: Wait, Carl is looking to get one and he's close enough to take a long drive after a negotiation. Who knows, he can show the guy the price it goes for new and haggle down from there. I'm going to call him later in case he doesn't see this. He may still be asleep now.

    EDIT: I was right, he woke up many hours later. Thank God I didn't call until later.

    That guy on CL is a price jacking jerk. Avoid buying anything off of a creep like this. More than what they cost new on CL...give me a break. That guy should get flagged. Buyer beware.

    The guy is probably laboring under the misapprehension that there's still a waiting list. When that was true it was common to see used units selling above new cost.

    AFAIK the waiting list is no longer active. My bass player's II shipped the day after he placed his order.
