Finding used Guitars

Postby dgdave » Tue Oct 19, 2010 11:27 am

Where are some good places online? I'm looking for a Danelectro Dano Pro, 67 Hornet, or Hodad and am having very little luck. I found a couple on ebay, nothing on Daddy's or guitar center. I also browsed a few forums.

Any help?

I'm thinking most of the bigger retailers have some sort of Ebay outlet. Everything seems to turn up there. Craigslist, maybe, if you're looking for a bargain. Perhaps some of the guitar sites have their own forums.

Anybody out there looking for a fairly well trashed Baldwin Baby Bison? Candy red, rezo-tubed beauty.

i was just looking at a Dano dealer last night.. think i just googled it.

ebay? CL? i saw a 59 DC Pro ($280 picked up from dickish seller :lol: ) on austin cl yesterday, that's what spurred it..
i have an original (late 90s reissue) 59 DC ... noisy as hell but i always enjoyed that guitar. neck feels great to me.

:mrgreen:
recent CL scores...

Not online, but pawn shops sometimes work out. I play leftie though, so it's a million times harder to find guitars.

Sometimes I bite at Craigslist ads just because they're so cheap.
Ex: A Kerry King B.C. Rich Warlock for $50. Worth about $300 new. I don't play guitar any more, only reason I got it was because it's so cheap.

I recently bought a brand new B.C. Rich Trace Warbeast bass. I looked online but they're so rare that I couldn't find a price I wanted. So I just went new.
I'm about to bite on a Gallien Kruger 1100 RB head with an 8X10 cab for $500. The head alone is worth $700 new, and the cab is prolly around 500-700 new.
I really just want the head so I can start building a rack setup.

Used gear is hit or miss. It's really difficult to say you ONLY want this guitar or that one and try to find it online used. Most of the used gear I've bought was just because I thought it was in good enough condition and was at a great price. Like my Ibanez BTB405 5 string. $300, and it's worth prolly $600 when I got it. I got that from Daddy's used gear.
I'm actually combing thru Daddy's a bit because I'm looking for a 1X15 cab.
