Yesterday, 11:48 PMThere is no denying that he was a phenomenal talent and that he was a very important figure in the early rock scene. But I never really got the Elvis bug.
You see when I was a kid growing up, I used to hear "That's the king of rock'n'roll". Then the clip would come on the telly of a man in white sparkly pajamas with a fat head and singing a mushy ballad, I had no idea that he was even the same guy that sang all those cool rock n roll songs in the 50's. It wasn't til adulthood that I learned to appreciate just how talented he was.. I think it was probably seeing a rerun of the 68 come back show on telly that I put two and two together and thought, Hey this guy is pretty good.
I love all the early rock n roll stuff he did.
My choice is this.
Yesterday, 01:44 AMI once sold a mim fender on eBay. As others have mentioned there is a fee which is a percentage of the price you sell it for. I, like you, had tried Gumtree and other buy\swap\sell type sites and didn't get any interest. In the past I have even asked my local guitar store to put stuff in the window for me but they take a fair chunk of the percentage for their trouble.
I guess that in our current world wide economic slump, it is a buyers market and you may not find anybody willing to pay what th y are really worth.
If you do put them on eBay you have to be pedantic about describing its condition, some buyers will go over it with a magnifying glass before leaving good feedback.
.. If you are not too fussed about a quick sell, you can put a reserve price on them.

You will also find useful info about removing and fixing controls in hollow body guitars, which can be fiddly.
I wish you luck with your tone quest.
15 May 2013 - 01:51 AMA great money saver for you might be to offer your complete scratch guard and pickup assembly for swap with an sss... there is bound to be someone looking for a cheap route to a hh configuration.
