    I hope it doesn't change much, it's been working well on many levels so far.

    Etsy has been increasing its prices fairly frequently the last couple of years. If their current rate structure applied to guitars, I would find it pretty reasonable.

    I hope nothing changes but my experience in company acquisitions is the thinks they can do it better and ends up either running it in the ground or closing it down. Fingers crossed.

    I doubt if they will close it down. They want to be the master of that person to person space. I think the most the would do is fold it all into their current model.

    I've had some pretty decent experiences on Etsy, I got those killer guitar hangers there. Just like any marketplace, you have to be aware of what you are getting. Caveat Emptor.

    Although, I'm not sure Etsy ever offers any buyer's protection, so if that starts happening to Reverb, I would expect to see a lot of off-site conversions.

    Reverb has been hosting craftspersons since its inception. For instance there's a couple of old ladies in Florida who handmake straps one at a time
    like mine https://reverb.com/item/9682105-bla...rap-artisan-handmade-soft-checkerboard-design
    There's a lot of sellers of handmade amps, guitars, and pedalboards, etcetera...
    Thanks to Reverb I no longer mess with ebay. Great place to shop and compare prices.

    I’ve erased it, but as I recall the email they sent me indicated Reverb would remain autonomous. I’m not expecting changes, but we shall see. I have several listings there.
