    The rules, set out below, have evolved over time at the collective request of fellow Forum members in an attempt to overcome issues that have arisen from time to time.

    *Sellers, Buyers and Traders are to take full responsibility for their transactions. EB will not accept liability.
    *Disputes will not be mediated nor resolved by EB or Moderators.


    1) Before posting an advert you will need a posting history of at least 25 previous posts throughout the Forum over a period of at least one month.

'Serial posting' in an attempt to obtain 25 posts in a short time period of time is not allowed.

    2) Only EB/MM items may be advertised.

    3) No advertising for a friend.

    4) In the case of a sale, state the selling price.

    5) Asking for payment by PayPal gift option is not allowed.

    6) Do not link your post to an on-line auction (e.g. Ebay) or to any other media where you may have placed your advert.

    7) No comments please. If you need to compliment, ask/answer questions, or negotiate then do so by private message.

    8) Posts will expire after a month but you are at liberty to re-post your advert after that time if you wish.

    9) Please delete posts when transactions have been finalized.

    10) Please limit the number and size of photographs in your posts. Maximum of 5 photos per post (less is OK too). You can privately share more photos with interested buyers when they contact you.

    Note: Failure to observe any of the above rules will result in automatic deletion of your posts and, in some cases, the possibility of being either temporarily or permanently banned.

    Many thanks!

    Asking: $1,850 (shipped to anywhere in the USA)

    Like all of you folks, I'm a Music Man fan. I own few basses and a couple electrics from Ernie Ball.

    But in 2010 I started a hobby of buying really old vintage guitars for collecting purposes. One of the acquisitions I made was for this really nice 1979 Sabre II. But I'm in a bit of a financial jam and need to sell this guitar from my collection. This is a Mint 1979 Music Man Sabre II electric. It's in collector condition. It looks brand new and it feels brand new. Here's the story behind it:

    It was originally sold in Japan to collector that had held onto it for 30 years before selling it. In 2009 it was sold to a guy in MD that bought and sold collector condition musical instruments for extra income.

    I came along in 2010 to buy it from this guy in MD. I intended on keeping it for several more years and I have not played this guitar for more 2 hours since buying it.

    This has not been a player's guitar. It has sat virtually unplayed and when you put it in your hands, you could swear that it was made in 2017. But of course this could become a player guitar and that would be up to you.

    The only three things I did since buying the guitar was change out the strings, replace the leather handle on the case with another leather handle in the same color and I custom ordered an extra pick guard from Pick Guard Heaven. There are photos of both pick guards and both will be included with the guitar. The original black guard looks new as well.
    The cool thing about this is that the manual and warrantee card are in Japanese. Those items along with the original case and keys are included.

    Here's a link to the photos:

    Please if you need to know anything about the specifics of this guitar please feel free to write me anytime.

    Here's one more photo below.

    I am offering my SBMM Cutlass in white - ca. 9 months old, very good condition, just a small dent on top of the headstock. Playability is great, the guitar is rather light weight.

    Right now there are other pickups mounted, which I will keep. I sell the guitar with the stock pickups, will change them.

    This is the exact guitar Thomann used to take the pictures on their website. Thomann offers warranty until May 2019.

    Looking for 450,- , I prefer to sell in Germany but if interested pm me, also for any questions...

    Silhouette Special

    Back to sell another one of my beauties. Still out of commission and forced into retirement for medical reasons and need the cash.

    Silhouette Special (Excellent Condition) and approximately 10 to 15 hours of actual playing time and never taken out of the house except for our move. It has not been played in the last few years but is taken out of the case and cleaned, polished, and oiled periodically.

    The factory calls this white but it has always looked more of a cream to me. Not like the GIF Avatar.

    Exclamation FS: 2015 Petrucci 7 string (USA)

    I was out of the "family" for a while and was looking for the right guitar to get back in. Unfortunately, after having acquired this beauty, I remembered why I hadn't owned a JP in the past - the location of the pickup switch just doesn't gel with my playing style. So I'm offering it here.

    2015 JP 7-string in white with matching headstock and bullet inlays. All stock and like new. There is one very small pin-size impression in the back near the trem cover that wouldn't show up in a pic, otherwise it's 100% perfect. Includes original case, trem bar, and all the case candy. $1625 shipped lower 48 US. Prefer a sale to free up some cash but I would consider a trade/trade+cash for an ASS but I'm picky. I'll consider offers, the worst I can say is no.

    Sterling JP-100, unique liquid amber finish

    One-off Sterling JP-100, liquid amber finish. Bought from Pete DuBaldo in 2012; only played for about 8 hours total. It's a great guitar, I just prefer my MM Jp's and this one has just been sitting for several years. It's never even been out of my house, so still in essentially brand-new condition.

    $650 shipped, CONUS only.

    I have a Silhouette Special SSH hardtail Blue Dawn 2001 for sale in Germany. It has maple fretboard, pearloid white pickguard, black pickups and knobs. Apart from a few rather minor battle marks it is in good condition. The most obvious is a scratch below the right hand forearm rest.
    OSHC included.

    I had the electronics exchanged though:
    Dimarzio AT-1 Bridge
    Dimarzio Fast Track 1 middle
    Dimarzio Pro Track neck
    5 way switch: bridge, bridge parallel middle, bridge parallel neck, middle, neck
    500k Volume pot, 250k Fender no load tone pot
    So now the humbucker sounds resemble Axis, and the rear quack position shows some quack, but fatter and not much quieter than the humbucker sounds. That Fast Track alone also sounds pretty good.

    1300 EUR seems a good starting point to me. Will ship to Europe which may be from 30-50 EUR depending where you are.

    For Sale:

    I have 2 great Music Man instruments for sale:

    2016 ST. Vincent in Blue/white. It's setup with 9's and the bridge is set to float. The St. Vincent has accompanied me on 3 gigs, and it's a killer guitar - I just can't get past the ergonomics. $1600 shipped to ConUS.

    2016 Morse Y2D. Hard Tail, purple sunset, and non-quilt top. $1550 shipped to ConUS. Another killer guitar, but whenever I go to a show, I alwasys grab my JP6. Someone needs to take this guitar out and let it be played.

    Both guitars come with the original case, but the candy is missing.

    Pics and Serial numbers available for serious inquiries.
