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.

G.A.L. "Big Red Book" set for sale, complete

Post by Mike Kolb »

Selling my hardbound set (full set of 7) of the G.A.L. "Big Red Book" series. They're in great shape... no missing or dog-eared pages. Some of the book jackets are sun-faded from sitting on a shelf and I've written my name (but small) on the inside first page.

These books have been with me for years. They've been a valuable resource for me both in guitar construction and repair. However, it's that time in my life to part ways and move them along to a fresh, new life on someone else's bench!

I'm selling the set for $1500 (plus shipping) as a unit and can't "break up the band", as being a complete set is where the value seems to be. Vols 1, 6 and 7 are no longer available in print from the G.A.L. This set is cross-listed on Reverb for a higher amount but it's listed here at this price to avoid the Reverb fees, if possible.

The shipping costs via USPS will likely be around $100, since it's a relatively heavy shipment (about 30lbs) and will need to be properly insured. The final determination will be, of course, where they're sent.

I'm an old-school non-tech guy.... so no Zelle, no Apple Pay, no credit cards, etc. I'll take a certified check or personal check, but won't ship until the deposit clears. That's one of the nice things about selling Reverb but, again, if those fees can be avoided, so much the better. There's more pics on the Reverb listing if you'd care to see them.

Reasonable offers are considered but I'm in no great hurry to sell. I've had less-than-pleasant results with overseas shipping, so Continental US only, please. Contact me with any questions and thank you for looking :) Mike
