This is a thread idea taken from the old 'UK Free Gear Thread', which sadly died.

The rules of this thread are simple. Gear must be posted as:

    Free (The buyer must fully cover the cost of shipping)

      Dirt Cheap (The seller must sell the item(s) for at least less than half the RRP, buyer must pay the asking price as well as relavent shipping costs)

        Trade (The seller must negotiate a trade with another person contributing something to the thread. Buyer and seller must post the item(s) simultaneously without paying any postage costs [although this can be negotiated with the seller])

        No general conversation is allowed on the thread, only concersation related to the buying/selling/trading of gear.

        Everyone asking for items for free must contribute something to the thread to give away for free. (For example, if Buyer A wanted a set of 6 In-Line tuners from Seller B, then Buyer A must offer (an) item(s) also for free, such as a Korg Chromatic Tuner)

        For free items, the first person to 'call' or 'dib' the item will get the item, unless it falls through. All negotiiations will be done by PM ONLY, no shipping information etc. must be posted on the thread.

        Hope this takes, off and happy trading!

        Fantastic idea! The old thread dies quite quickly, but I like the Dirt Cheap idea!

        I have a Danelectro Fab Distortion which usually retails around £16 (exc. postage etc.) but about £25 in stores.

        Its a fantastic pedal, much understated but I have so many distortion pedals right now, so the herd must be trimmed.

        Putting it up for trade/dirt cheap (offers around £8)
        #3
        Thanks.

        I have a set of 6, black inline tuners for trade, otherwise will accept most offers around the £8 mark.

        I also have a DigiTech RP200 multieffects unit with power supply and Fender 15R practice amp, looking for around £30 for pedal and about £40 for amp, or would trade for an Epi Valve Jr, plus about £10.

        I'm willing to trade a:

        Fully working Behringer Distortion Modeler. Nice little distortion pedal with 3 settings that replicate a Boss DS1, an MXR Distortion + and a ProCo Rat. Also has distortion, tone and level knobs. Retails at £17.

        I want to trade it for a chromatic tuner pedal, I don't mind which company it's made by. Let me know if you want to trade it for anything else though cos I may be interested.

        (I'm based in UK)

        OHHH! I read that as "lo pro" and thought "well I can't have that" but it's not so that would be good for me!

        What colour is it? Black or Chrome? I can't tell from that.

        £20 with shipping to outskirts of London?

        Sorry for the bad pics, its black. It's a factory second from a factory which produces for a lot of well known companies, so its fantastic quality. The reason its a second is because on the base it says 'licensed under floyd rosd pats.' i bolded the typo.It's really not noticable, I only noticed it today in fact! But a guy in a guitar shop said he remembers that he saw the same typo on a guitar years ago!

        It would cost me about £4 P&P alone..I think its too low an offer, but I'll leave it open for more offers and il get back to you!

        Okay, well my current offer is £25 (including the £4 P&P) at the moment, accept or decline it as you wish. I've been looking for an original style Floyd in black for a while now just to try fitting it to a guitar body I've got lying around so I'd really appreciate it if we could sort something out.

        Is the body routed for a specific scheme? like HSH or SSS or HSS? (h= humbucker s=single coil)
        How about £40+shipping depending on how much it is.
        or for pedal trade.. hmmm I'm happy with my pedals atm but theres a few I can always replace:
        - Danelectro French Toast Octave Fuzz Distortion (clone of the famous foxx tone machine)
        - Dan Armstrong Orange Squeezer (which I built, has true bypass and sustain control, unlike the stock version)
        - Danelectro Fab Echo (modded for adjustable delay time & more control over repeats)

        Interested?

        Not trying to be rude, but this should've been stated in your original post, would you take cash for it?! If so how much? And can we get some pics? I'm genuinely interested - just thought your first post needed attending to!
