New Experimental Forum: Used Instrument Marketplace

Post by Dale »

Initiating an experimental forum for the Wanted To Buy and For Sale notices of used instruments. For now, it's ok to post such notices both here and on the other forums. Please don't post to more than two forums when buying or looking for a used instrument.

The Used Instrument Exchange forum is here: viewforum.php?f=35

(Don't post notices to this Announcement thread!)

Wow, quite the shift in policy.
I think this would be handy, though,
since we do get the same FS post in
multiple forums to cover bases. Heck,
I was about to do just that. A central
location might be just the thing. I can't
even remember why you didn't want one
earlier...

When will the time come for the ban of FS/WTB threads in rest of forums? It will dramatically reduce the level of WhOA in most of us, I suppose :)

If the experiment is to have a forum that can't be viewed or posted to without permission, so as to protect those of us with few funds, it's working.

Of course, if I wanted to post an instrument for sale, should I just send my listing to a moderator, for posting?

I think I like this idea......

The forum title implies used instruments only......what about the makers and tweakers? If it is intended that they tout their wares there too, maybe the title needs tweaking? Clarification?
I respect people's privilege to hold their beliefs, whatever those may be (within reason), but respect the beliefs themselves? You gotta be kidding!

I have an absolutely stinking cold, with chesty cough, acute bronchitis at best I should think, and it is turning into a horrible bout of catarrh and blocked sinuses. Anyone wanna buy some second-hand harmonicas? :D

I assumed the title was on purpose.
Non-commercial posts, I'd think.

Okay, here goes...
I have for sale a Majestic Tenor banjo. Made in the 20s here in NYC. It is a 19 fret, new tuning pegs , skin head in good condition. The neck itself is thin. I find it extremely comfortable to play. Asking $400.00.

I also have a German fiddle. Has a somewhat bright sound. Good condition. Asking $350.00.
Please email regarding pictures.

Thanks, Arbo
