Telling people you may post but they'll have to buy a case etc and no indication of costs will always put people off as your main market will be outside the local area. I'd guess the guitar came from japan with no case so there's no need to stipulate they need to buy a case. Parcelforce will pick up the guitar from your house and deliver for around £25 as far as I can remember so it's a lot cheaper to send guitars than most people think. As long as it's well packed there's no need for a case.

FYI: Last I checked, Parcelforce won’t cover musical instruments for loss / damage over around £200. Even if you pay for extra cover, the smallprint excludes musical instruments.

I have a couple of guitars on ebay currently.

1991 Les Paul Studio
Ebony fretboard and a killer sounding guitar.


2014 Les Paul Traditional
Another great guitar. Has the limited edition '59 humbuckers and one of the best tops you'll find on a Trad.

I don't really want to part with either but I've just bought another R8 so need the cash and the space.

I'm willing to go to £750 on the Studio and £1200 on the Trad for a MLP member.

Both guitars come with hard cases and will be shipped in Gibson boxes.

Hello,

i am in search for a Gibson Les Paul. I am a guitarmaker and for already quite a while also a Gibson Fan Boy. The guitar is not for me, but for a very good friend. Normally he is playing a super Strat built by me, but he know fell in love with the idea of playing a Les Paul, and of course I support this wish and and want to try helping him to find his Gibson.

You will need to ship the guitar to either the Netherlands or Germany. We are willing to buy from you as long as you are located in the EU. Due to custom and shipping expenses , unfortunately we are not so much interested into buying from outside the EU, but if you have THAT perfect match willing to sell.....let me know.

What are we searching:

-Gibson Les Paul Made in USA, sorry no Tokai, ESP, Epiphone etc.
-No solid color, so no Les Paul Custom...sorry! A Goldtop might work....not yet sure about that....
-Flamed maple top or plain top, flamed maple preferred.
-57 58 59 neck profile, please no 60 slim taper, so earlie 90ies Classics are very great guitars, but these necks are too thin.....sorry!
-Swiss chees body from the early nineties is OK, chambered or modern weight relief is not wanted
- no Studio, Ultima, Special, Junior
- we actually search a R8 or R9 or an early 90ies Standard. A later standard might also work, depending on the year built and the according specifications

what we also accept without any problems:
- broken headstock NO PROBLEM, as long as repaired from a guy who knows what titebond is....
- worn down frets
- missing or changed hardware
- worn or damaged finish
- modifications, damages, non original case, missing COA etc....

we are not necessarily searching a bargain, but it would be nice to have a great guitar with issues which i can fix for him or he is willing to deal with.

the guitar should be not too heavy.....3.8 to 4.0 kg would be great, 4.0 to 4.5 acceptable. Heavier Les Pauls, think Norlin, might also work, but not really wanted.

PAYMENT:
PayPal, Bank Transfer, cash by pick up, all no problem, money is ready available,
price range is anything from 1000€ to 2000€ possible.
if you have THE deal, for example a damaged CC or whatever, we can pay also more...

So....let them come ....

thank you cheers, alex

Selling my 2008 Gibson Custom Non-Reverse Firebird. All stock apart from moving the strap button to the heel where it balances better. Comes with original case, COA, etc.



Up on the usual sites (eBay / Reverb) for £2399 but there’s definitely a deal to be done here. Lots more pictures available of course.

Looking to clear enough for a decent digital piano for my son with enough left over to pick up a small guard SG (’61 reissue or certain early 2000s Standards, I think?) for myself. So if you have one of those to trade I’m definitely interested!

Selling my 2005 Gibson Custom Shop Pete Townshend Les Paul Deluxe #1 (what a mouthful!).

A very rare beast indeed – this is one of only 75 ever made by the Custom Shop, back in 2005. Serial number is “PETE 0[xx]”

It recreates all the features of PT’s original #1, including the pancake body, neck volute, first-fret inlay, custom wiring, and two extra toggle switches to control the added middle pickup. A completely unique take on Les Pauls; really something different from your R8/R9/etc and ultra-versatile! With certain combinations you can get some really funky/stratty style tones.

This one is 95% mint. It has clearly been well looked after its whole life. It comes with all of the original case candy, including both COAs, none of which has even been opened.

Values seem to be in the range of US$6-9k. I’m asking £5,000.

I’m based in London. I’m also open to trades, partly or fully, so let me know if you have anything interesting!

Up for sale my main acoustic guitar. It is a '76 made CE-1000, a Martin D28 replica from the second year Tokai launched CE (Cat's Eye) series, hence a lower production than later years. Yamauchi label signed as it should be.
This guitar has a quality solid spruce top with a lot of "espejuelo" (as spanish greatest guitarreros called bearclaw. According to spanish guitar tradition, classic and flamenco guitars of quality had to have that small waves which guaranteed a good sounding guitar. It seems Tokai knew this luthery secret too ,because this guitar is plenty of it. Neck is made of beatifull mahogany with a carefully chosed ebony board. SIdes are old times rosewood made.
High action as I like at this time. Original blackTokai Martin replica case included.
In summary, a quality guitar from a great era.

Following some pics....
















I am asking 1.500 euro
Only trade accepted: Old 1980-83 Tokai ES-100/150 in good condition or any ES-335, natural finish preferred.

Greetings!

For Sale Hughes and Kettner GrandMeister GM40D (£949 as new price)

complete with cover, original box and manual. Tubes replaced with JJ’s (£92) and wmi-1 WiFi’s interface (£136)

immaculate, not gigged just occasional band rehearsal.

£750 collection/ drive reasonable distance. I would prefer not to post. Probably have enough guitars, certainly don’t need another amp but have a hankering for a gold top, CS Tele with humbucker at the neck, so potentially would consider a swap for the right guitar with money your way for the right guitar.
