    I had this idea a while ago and emailed the mods, but they never got back to me.
    Hopefully this will be stickied at the top of the page and will be visible at all times. I think it's much better to have an ongoing thread of this sort, rather than individual MIJ related threads in the main Member's Classifieds section (which may be missed by members who frequent here).

    As for the ground rules, it's pretty much the same as the main Member's Classifieds:

    1. Post items for sale, for trade or which you want to buy.
    2. Each new post must state where you are and what kind of price/budget you have in mind.
    3. You can just post a link to your thread in the main Member's Classifieds section if you want to.
    4. Do not crap on or discuss someone else's item in the thread.
    5. Pictures are always good :D

    I'm fully prepared to see this fail miserably or not even get stickied, so let me know if this is a crap idea and I'll pull the plug :)

    Great idea:)

    I'm having a gear clear out soon with the intention of financing either an Edwards E-LP 130 or an early 80's Greco Super Real, an EGF 850 or 1000 maybe.

    I'm not confident about buying from Japan so would rather deal with somone from the forum and pay a bit extra. This could be just the ticket!

    Did you read the OPs 1st post.

    I guess there are pros and cons to both having it here or in the Classifieds.. but I think it's much less likely to be stickied there :thumb:

    To be honest, I'm expecting a PM from MLP Admin at any moment saying that it's got to be moved..

    When I first got the guitar, I decided to change the hardware to silver, put it in the shop for a new bridge and received this....to be honest, I can't tell the difference.

    Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa......you never know!!! Or do you? :hmm:

    I have been a member of many online forums, most of them related to music, musical artists, or guitars

    In all of my years as a forum member in multiple forums, I have probably sold, and/or purchased two guitars via a forum transaction

    I have been an eBay member for nearly 11 years, and have hundreds of transactions via eBay

    If I want to sell something, eBay will offer me the best potential for advertising exposure, and also for a quick sell & a top price

    If I want to buy something, I know where to go for that too

    In the end, having a place here in the 'Other LP' section is really no different than listing, or buying in the MLP Classified

    It's just more to keep up with IMO ..................

    Fair comment, but it saves people having to go over to the MLP Classifieds (where MIJ-related stuff is more often than not drowned by domestic ads for USA Gibsons). We'll see what the mods do either way - I'm not fussed if this is deemed "non-kosher" and is put to the kerb.
