Sell This Guitar launches new website to connect people who want to buy and sell guitars.

Santa Barbara, CA (February 8, 2013) -- Walk into your local music store and see if you can find a 1955 Gibson Les Paul Jr. Chances are, unless you happen to live next door to Norman's Rare Guitars, you won’t have much luck. And how do you go about selling a vintage guitar when collectors are spread throughout the world? Starting today, guitar sellers and buyers will have a one-stop resource to find every guitar for sale around the globe. Created as a personal project from Seymour Duncan’s Media Manager Scott Olson, Sell This Guitar uses the web to do what it does best: connect buyers and sellers of guitars, basses and acoustics. Whether you are looking to buy the $99 Squire from the kid down the street, or you’re searching for that ‘52 Goldtop you’ve been dreaming of, Sell This Guitar can help you find it. Using a maps interface, the system allows you to search within your own town or even globally for specific guitars. You can easily sell an electric, acoustic, or bass guitar by clicking where you live, entering a brief description of your instrument and uploading a picture. A simple contact form allows people to get in touch with you without making your email public.

Notable Features:

  • Worldwide searchability
  • Free access to buy or sell instruments
  • Image upload and icon selection options
  • Rare guitar finds within your own backyard
  • Built-in auto-location randomizer to ensure your actual location is secure. While guitar stores will want to use the precise icon feature, Sell This Guitar's auto-location feature will give users the piece of mind that no one will know the real location of their prized guitars. If any scurvy tone pirate wants to try and find your treasured ES-175 while you are away, they will have nothing to play but the blues.
  • Sell This Guitar offers a great outlet for selling that guitar that you no longer use, and finding the guitar of your dreams. Use the search feature to discover instruments both within your community and within the walls of your local guitar stores.

We’re almost finished with the aging process on our project guitar. Let’s work on the fretboard, nut, and truss rod cover, and prepare the headstock for the last hurrah.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. This month we’ll continue with our relic’ing project, taking a closer look at the front side of the neck and treating the fretboard and the headstock. We’ll work on the front side of the headstock in the next part, but first we must prepare it.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
