Forum rules
Registered members only may use this section for placing free, non-commercial ads for tangible goods. What do we mean by "non-commercial?" If you're an instrument builder you cannot place a free ad here to sell or trade your instruments. If you're a dealer you cannot place an ad here to sell or trade whatever you deal in. Use this section to look for items you want as well - begin the title of your discussion with the shorthand WTB (for Want To Buy), WTT (for Want To Trade), FS (for For Sale), or FREE if you have a tangible item to give away.

Please do not use the discussion here to engage in negotiations with a seller/buyer, nor ask the other party to contact you - you should contact that person directly. Their contact info is available by clicking on their name, "profile", "PM" or "e-mail" icons in the message.

You may NOT solicit to buy or sell services, for people to give you goods or services for free, to sell more than two of the same item, or to sell more than a couple of related items!!

MIMForum etiquette is to post the asking price for the item you are selling; to e-mail the buyer/seller instead of posting a message here, which they may not see, asking them to contact you; and to respond to all e-mail inquiries. Please do not leave your potential buyer/seller hanging.

Members may also use this section to solicit other members to join them in a bulk purchase to meet a minimum order, as long as the organizer is not profiting from the transaction, and the item being purchased in bulk is not sold in smaller quantities by any of our advertisers, or the bulk purchase being organized is a purchase from an advertiser. Please remember that any such transaction is strictly between the parties involved and the MIMForum cannot be responsible for any unfavorable outcome.

Sell your item? Earn a bundle? If you would like to send a small percentage of the sum to help support the MIMForum and keep it online, we won't object! You can use our subscription form and send any amount you wish. Thanks!

Your ad should be limited to 50 words and may contain non-commercial attachments. Links to graphics (that do not display as part of your ad) are OK as long as they are not at your commercial website. Please ask the sysop to delete your ad if the item sells or you find what you want, or post a message saying "Sold" (or whatever). Otherwise the shelf-life of an ad placed here will be 60 days. If you are interested in purchasing a commercial ad, please see our ad rates page. Please do not "bump" your ad, doing so will result in its immediate removal. Thanks.
Do not post your e-mail address, home address, or phone number!!

My late husband built electric guitars. I am clearing his inventory of guitar bodies, necks, etc. doing this a little bit at a time. Grouping stuff together such as 3 bodies posting here and selling group as one unit. I cannot take questions about finishes, type of wood, etc. because I do not know the answers. I am asking $150 (includes shipping) for these 3 bodies in various stages of construction. Front and back pictures of 2 bodies. The raw wood body looks the same back and front.

First of all Faye, I would like to express my condolences for your loss. It has to be a very difficult time for you.
This is something every luthier like me who is getting on in age, thinks about to some degree. Leaving all the guitars and parts and tools for someone else to deal with. :(

I would take some of your items, but I am in the same situation.
If I were you, I would probably try Craigs List, and Ebay also.
I wish you success, and hope someone from this forum ends up with a couple of your pieces.
Those Tele bodies look like they are well done, with nice woods.
I need your help. I can't possibly make all the mistakes myself!

They look great. Worth every penny. It would be useful if you put in the approximate location (the state/region). I assume it is the USA as you have dollar pricing. Some members such as myself and Gordon are not in the US.

Thank you, Gordon and Simon. I appreciate your advice very much. I live about 30 miles north of New Orleans, Louisiana.
