Hi guys I have a genuine 1967 Gibson ES330 that I have owned since  the  late 1970`s . I hardly ever play it  anymore. I have decided to let the instrument go to someone who will play it . It`s in good condition but minus the pick guard which I never had.  Is it better to sell it privately or take it to a guitar shop to sell. ??  I would put photos on this site but I cant`t get them to  appear as it says file too big. I have no idea how to reduce file size, as in my 70`s so know bugger all about modern tech. Any help appreciated . I`m not trying to sell it to anyone on this website but looking for ideas on where to go with it.

yes, reverb is good for pricing, but be aware, you are on your own as a seller.  You will need to handle the shipping and hope that your buyer is legit and you don’t have any hassles if they try to scam you.  Obviously tons of sales go through there with no problem, but it is a risk if you are not familiar with internet selling.  You may get to keep more of the proceeds, but it comes with extra work, like anything.   Guitar Center notoriously lowballs their offers.  If you have a local music shop they might take it on consignment for you. There are high end specialty guitar places, like Daves Guitar, Willies American Guitars, Carter Vintage etc.,  that have the clientele looking for special or vintage  that may be interested in either buying outright or consigning it for you.  Good luck.   

Btw, the photo site Imgur is the place to use for posting pics.  Set up an account, start a new post, upload your picture.  Once the picture is in your image folder, open it and click on “direct link” from the menu next to it.  Then paste the link you just copied into a post here.  You can upload and share as many pics as you want.

Oh wow thank you very much for that advice. I`m in my 70`s and not too good with internet and technology. I will take a good look at some of those sites you mention. I appreciate the time you took to help me.  Regards Andy.

Hey, you are among your people here! We did a “who was president when you were born?” poll awhile back and I recall the average answer was Eisenhower 😄
