Alright, so with many people here in GG&A, we all know what Craigslist, Gumtree, and TradeMe for what they really are. They are a place to find some really great deals, to get some off-the-wall gear, or just to even get a good laugh or two.

Let's use this thread to celebrate all three of the above mentioned topics!


I'll start with this, a $7000 Fat Strat because it is the only listing I have off hand.

Also, please try to quickly explain/summarize what you are posting along with the link.



ADDENDUM: as mentioned by 311ZOSOVHJH, I know craigslist has their postings go out of date after about 30 days. This thread should be read from the most current (last post) point first, then backtrack.


IMPORTANT ADDENDUM: THIS IS NOT FOR ADVERTISING YOUR OWN LISTING. ANYONE WHO IS DOING SO WILL BE DEALT WITH ACCORDINGLY (WARNING/BAN)

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

I picked up my Quick Rod off craigslist and sold my GDEC.

Both were pretty easy transactions.


Also, the other night I saw a listing in my Musical Instruments where this guy basically used the F word to ask why there were so many idiotic posts with prices that were too high.

ok TS tis is a good ides (was thinking about doing this but just too darn lazy lol)

i have a suggestion though:

to make it more organized, constantly edit you OP with new deals posted by replies and such and categorize them by city and category

for example:

Florida Deals:
-Miami
-Guitars
-Amps


see what I mean?
B-52 OWNERZ LINK!!!

GUITAR
Gibson SG Special Faded Brown w/ Duncan Blackouts
AMP
B-52 At-112 60 Wat All Tube Combo

i like the idea, but it might be construed as advertising for the listings. i just want this thread to showcase the best moments of craigslist. do you see what i mean?

Not major lulz or anything but a little while ago I found a Jackson Rhoads EX(from 94 or 96). The guy didnt want it any more so he had it up for $200, I told him I would give him $150 and he took it. There were a few scratches and the wings had paint chipping off from being knocked into things but I didn't want a black guitar anyways. I decided to make it my first project guitar, refinishing it in Nuclear Yellow and dropping new pups into it. All the hardware is in super nice condition and it made for a very unique and awesome guitar. I have to say it was a pretty amazing deal for $150(he even gave me the official jackson/charvel hardshell case for it!)

^^ Nice amp.

It's an awesome site for deals and lulz. Aside from the musical inst section, the "best of" is hilarious.

When I build that bar, this will be helpful.

You know, when you DO make that bar, you should get an MG head and wire it to control a blender or something. and set the OD to crush ice.


it'd be so fuckin' hilarious. and fitting. because that sound would be better than MG distortion.

That is a good idea. The longer I take to plan this the better it gets. IP told me to use cabs as a base and "presidentially" engineer it so it works as an ipod docking station.
Why don't they make mouse flavored cat food?

Sold my Spider II for $425, sold a Digitech Grunge without a battery terminal and a broken Hyper Phaser for parts.

Bought a half broken Jekyll and Hyde(haven't bought without testing since - dist channel only), and found a cherry Ibanez FL-9. I'd say Craig's been kinda in my favor.

Got my black Squier Bullet w/ Gibson 500T and hardshell case for $65(!), and I have to say it's awesome.

Then I got a Simmons SD5K electronic drum set w/ throne and bass pedal for $350 (would have been about 700 including tax brand new).

I think my most recent purchase was of 4 Danelectro mini pedals (Compressor, Octave, Phaser, Vibrato) for $30.

As of right now, looking for a JCM900 1x12 50w combo, and a reasonably priced pedal tuner.
GEAR:
Crate V50 combo
Bad Monkey OD
Boss DS-1
Squier 20th Ann. Bullet (black on black, Gibson 500T pickup, Ping tuners)
