Forum rules
This is for selling your personal equipment, but sponsored selling is allowed as well. We are requiring all ads to have the following information. Price, Brand, Model, and location (for instruments, not accessories) need to be included in the ad, or at least be very clear in link provided. It is acceptable to link to an external ad if you are promoting a sale of your personal equipment. No Ebay Auctions, but Buy it now listings are fine. Photos are HIGHLY suggested as well. If you see an ad that does not meet these criteria, please report it.

Contact info in For Sale

Summary: supply more ways to contact you off board for potential buyers.

I've been getting lots of requests for new user accounts so they can contact you about a purchase.

While I am happy to create accounts, you'll get lots more bites if you include info that contacts you directly versus through private messages.

This forum gets the most traffic by far.

Just a suggestion, but I wouldn't use my main email acct. Something like Yahoo or similar. Also you should disguise the email address without using the "circle a" or "at symbol" as this usually triggers spam bots or web robots looking for targets to spam.

Something like:
John Smith at yahoo dot com or
john.dontsendspam.smith AT
john.smith.deletethis AT
john.why-the-extra-words.smith AT

It should still be obvious to the reader but not the spam bots.
