How to sell your used guitar (and gear..)

javascript:void(0)

Three years ago, i bought a cheap, $150, Samwick electric guitar when i first started learning to play the electric.

About the beginning of last year, i sold it off to a contact of my friend for $100 as i decided to stick with the acoustic guitar.

Also, two years ago, i bought a $200 Marshall Stack Amp from Davis Guitars at Peninsula Plaza, and sold it off in Sept last year for $140 to a electric guitarist who saw my ad at Luthermusic's Classifieds.


Are you also keen to sell your guitar? or maybe it could be your digital effects pedal, or your limited edition Kapo..

Here are 5 very practical tips to note when selling your used guitar online:

1. Take a flattering picture of your instrument.

Since this is a used guitar that you are selling the buyer will want to see a clear picture of the condition of the instrument. Try not to conceal anything. Make the picture look good but don't try and deceive the buyer.

2. Write a compelling description.

Try and inject a bit of passion into your description without creating hype. Also, it is useful to tell the potential buyer why you are selling. Are you just tired of the instrument? Have you decided to sell your acoustic guitar because you are only interested in playing electric?

3. Decide how you will accept payment.

Don't forget that the buyer may live on the other side of the country. Do you want to wait weeks for a money order to arrive? One service that many people use is PayPal. You receive your money instantly and there is also a comfort level for the buyer as they can always use PayPal in the event of a dispute.

4.Figure out shipping costs(if any)

Make sure that you figure out what the shipping costs will be to various parts of the country. You need to also decide whether you will sell outside of your country. If you live in Singapore, will you ship to the United States or to Spain ? Also remember, that when you ship across borders there are custom and taxation issues. Are you paying this or is the purchaser?

5. Where do you want to post your ad?

You can use an online auction site like Ebay or a classified ads site like Kijiji, Craig's List or Guitars for Sale Online . If you use Ebay make sure you are clear on how the auctions work.If you live in Singapore, Luthermusic's classifieds is a very good classifieds source also.

What happens if you find a buyer through an ad in Craig's list and yet your auction has a week to run on Ebay and you have some bids. You can probably get out of the auction but just make sure you know what you are doing so that you don't find yourself locked in an uncomfortable situation.

Lastly, a very good channel of selling your guitar if you have it listed on a forum like Ultimate-Guitar.com. Trust me! I advertised this blog in that forum, and got like 102 hits in just one day..

Yup.Those are some key points to take note. If you have any extra suggestions or questions, feel free to comment.
