PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING --Posting Rules and Useful Links

Post by Administrator on Sun Apr 13, 2008 5:56 pm

PRIVATE ADVERTISING HERE

We firmly believe that you will get a better price for your instrument by advertising it to the masses on Ebay or similar sites, but if you have something a bit special, or you want to give an opportunity for your fellow Westone fans to get first refusal...think of this as the online equivalent of a For Sale ad in a shop window.

Rules for Seller

  1. You must upload at least one photograph of the instrument in question.
  2. You must give an accurate description of the condition of the instrument.
  3. You must state if the instrument has been modified in any way, e.g. replacement pickups, tuners, pickguards.
  4. You must state the price you are looking for! Don't ask how much it's worth, and be prepared for some hard bargaining.
  5. Don't forget to mention which area you live in (Country in particular), and where you are prepared to post it to.
    Remember, this is an international forum.
  6. Don't be rude.
Rules for Buyers

  1. Conduct all of your business via Private Messages (PM), or direct email.
    Do not post financial offers on the open forum.
  2. Feel free to ask questions about the instrument on the open forum, if this will be useful to others.
  3. Don't be rude.

THIS FORUM IS A CONTACT POINT ONLY

POSTING A LISTING FOR AN INSTRUMENT DOES NOT CONSTITUTE AN ENDORSEMENT
FROM WESTONEGUITARS.NET
ANY SALE MUST BE CONCLUDED DIRECTLY AND IN PRIVATE.

Rules for posting Ebay, Craigslist, TradeMe, Gumtree, Kijiji, or Other Website Links

  1. You may post links to auctions/adverts.
  2. Do not use any language that could be viewed as libelous in response to any listings.
    Stick to the facts and keep opinions to a reasonable level!
  3. While links are fine, please do not post images from auctions/adverts unless you have the express permission of the seller.
    Remember, you do not own those images, and you may cause liability issues for WestoneGuitars.
  4. The Westone Forums takes no responsibility for any sale that results from listings mentioned on these pages.
    A link to a listing does not constitute a recommendation from The Westone Forums.



A reminder that there are plenty of unscrupulous sellers and buyers out there.
Be careful, check feedback ratings, don't agree to meet anyone down a dark alley or send cash in the post, etc.
Regular forum members (10 posts or more) may promote their own non-Westone auctions.
Just make sure it is a musical instrument. Anything else will be deleted.

I see you deleted my 2 recent Kijiji listings.
Are you banning that source for some reason?
Same question I guess for Craigslist.

These are relatively hassle free vehicles and much cheaper than eBay! I've purchased 3 Mats guitars from Kijiji in the past 6 months.

Hello Barry, Smile

I'm not sure which posts you are referring to as it is impossible for me to read every single one and it is quite possible that I may have missed it. Have you checked to see if they haven't been moved to a more relevant forum? If not and they have been deleted, Neil has every right to do so.

I mentioned in a previous post that if we were to continually add all the different selling outlets that are on the internet, we would just end up as a free advertising space for any old Tom, Dick or Harry to use, resulting in the loss of the real reason why we have these forums in the first place. As it is, there are still the occasional one or two members who join these forums solely for the purpose of hoping to find a buyer for their guitar. I suspect these members have no respect for the Westone name in any case and are just hoping to make a fast buck.

I hope this clarifies things for you.

My apologies Polly and Admin; I'm such a block head!
I got my forums mixed up Embarassed
This post should have gone on the matsumoku.org site

I just got a Vantage Avenger and was doing a bunch of posting this afternoon and got confused (obviously) when I switched back to the Westone site.

Please disregard and delete.
I shall take myself out to the wood shed and soundly thrash myself until I can hit high 'C'.

Jeez, mate - growing old is a bastard, eh!!! Laughing I think the good folk in here might like to see that simply stunning Avenger, though - poke it into the off topic thread...

I have reformatted and edited the rules post in an effort to improve readability and understanding for new members.

There are no major changes to policy.
