    I'm a working bassist/guitarist/gear head
    I get alot of jobs playing acoustic as well as bass,sometimes doubling on both.

    I need to buy a decent used hollowbody or semi-hollowbody
    guitar and if possible,I'd like to do craigs list or something like talkbass.
    is there a guitar based classified section similar to TB..
    i like the fact that there's a member's fee,feedback system..etc
    obviously there's always a risk,but is there anything fairly trustworthy and secure out there
    that u guys know of?

    thanks!

    TGP is the top guitar forum.
     
  3. I belong to a few, just google guitar forums. You'll be very surprised how many are out there.

    None of this caliber in my opinion.

    TheGearPage is alright, but it's full of men in their mid-life crisis buying boutique amps and guitars for absurd prices (one guy recently bought 2 actual PAF pickups from 2 different 50's-60's gibsons for $2k)

    Ultimate-Guitar is full of pre-teen kids (a lot from the UK) starting out on guitar asking for gear recommendations.

    Personally, I go to sevenstring.org, which is admittedly full of metalheads, but they're VERY open minded to other guitars and whatnot. They have discussion for 6, 7, and 8-string guitars as well as basses, etc. They're a very powerful community.

    which of these would u say has the best classified section?..
    if u had to pick one?

    ...honestly,between craigs and TB i've been lucky..so far.
    maybe i should stick with 'em..
     
  8. Probably the manufacturer specific forums. Like letstalkguild.com or rickresource.com or ernieball forums, etc.

  10. This may be so but they have a lot of knowledge to share, you just have to avoid getting caught up in the "buy tons of expensive gear" mindset.
