The Most Watched Gear on Reverb This Week

At any one moment, there are hundreds of thousands of items for sale on Reverb. Which ones resonate the most with the music makers who buy or browse the site?

One way to know is to look at what people are adding to their Watch Lists. This is Reverb's way of "favoriting" an item, which you can do for any listing by clicking the star or "Watch" box. You'll then be able to see if it drops in price, if it sells, or if it gets relisted.

So what's everyone been eyeing this week? We're highlighting some of the most Watched items here.

1969 Epiphone Prototype

1969 Epiphone Sorrento Prototype

This unique, late '60s Epiphone is certainly a special instrument and perhaps the only one of its kind. According to the listing, the seller isn't sure if this was a special-order guitar for a customer or an employee-made experiment. Though the label calls it a Sorrento, it features a double cutaway and a full-depth body packed with mini humbuckers. This mystery guitar is all-original, in excellent shape, has had a pro setup, and comes with its original hardshell case.

1960s Farfisa

1960s Farfisa

Watchers have flocked to another piece of late '60s gear this week outside of the guitar realm: this Farfisa Fast 2 organ. These mid-century Italian organs are suitcase-style lookers, and this one especially, with its bright orange casing. According to the listing, this organ is fully functioning with one slightly lifted C key that doesn't affect playability. Its original music stand and legs are missing, but it does feature an amp and speakers built-in and has an input for a volume pedal.

1969 Ludwig No. 980

1969 Ludwig No. 980

The Ludwig No. 980 Super Classic Outfit kits are some of the most popular drum sets we see crop up on Reverb. This particular listing is for a White Marine Pearl-finished set from 1969, featuring a 14x22 bass drum, 9x13 tom tom, and 16x16 floor tom.

Gibson Les Paul Special

Gibson Les Paul Special

Here we have a Les Paul Special that promises vintage-style touches in a modern package. What's particularly special about this listing and why this guitar has garnered so many Watchers is because of its finish, which is a custom gunmetal green with cream-color plastics and no pickguard.

Sequential OB-6

Fender FSR Thinline Jaguar

This Sequential OB-6 snuck onto the Most Watched list this week as well, likely related to the launch of the OB-X8 which was announced at Superbooth a couple of weeks ago. Since then, we've seen overall renewed interest in Tom Oberheim-made synths. If you want to learn more about how you can find them on Reverb yourself, check out our Save This Search: All of Tom Oberheim's Synths piece.

Fedden Wavecaster Acrylic

Fedden Wavecaster Acrylic

This special Wavecaster has been turning Watchers' heads on Reverb for its super unique clear body filled with a green water and clear UV oil formula that will turn the goo blue under a strong blacklight (you can see this pictured in the listing itself). According to the listing, this guitar is one of eight built by George Fedden, who also built Kirk Hammett's Wavecaster.

1971 MCI 416A Console

1971 MCI 416A Console

"These consoles are sleepers," this listing reads, hyping up the 1971 MCI 416A console on offer. Over the last few decades, this console has had some maintenance work done but could use a little bit more—six line inputs and five mic preamps are currently down, among a few other minor things, but nothing that should stand in the way of snagging a solid desk if you're in the market.

Two Rock Bloomfield Drive

Two Rock Bloomfield Drive

Here we have a Two Rock Bloomfield Drive amp head with a matching 2x12 cabinet, both wrapped and finished in a sharp and attractive golden brown suede. This particular duo has only had one owner, the seller, who alleges that the pair has never even left their studio. If you want the feel and sound of a warm vintage amp in a newer package with dependable innards, check this one out.

Bilt Guitars S.S. Zaftig

2016 Zaftig Jazzmaster

Listed just a couple of days ago, this Bilt Guitars S.S. Zaftig—which is a unique mix of both Jazzmaster and Jaguar features—quickly rose to the top of this week's Most Watched list. According to the listing, build times for new guitars from this brand are currently sitting at around six to eight months. If you don't want to wait, this listing could be your chance to cut the line and save a little money.
