    I'm looking for $2,300 I went to guitar center yesterday they offered me $1,700 but that's cuz they resell them for $3,500, so a worker there told me don't be silly just post it yourself online and I should be able to get paid much more directly from buyers Instead of shop...

    unfortunately no. You are really going to need to up your picture and copy skills to unload the guitar at that price point.

    Pictures need to be much clear, so does the distribution. You also need to detail any irregularities, and dings etc. For instance is one of the saddles aluminum? Why doesn't it match? What kind of electronics? Who are Eleven Guitars?

    Would you buy this guitar based on the pics and distribution posted?

    I just looked at the Reverb listings for these. You might want to adjust the selling price. The manufacturer has had several of these listed new for $2,100 and none of them has sold, or even generated many watchers in the listings. Even though it might be a great guitar there doesn't;t seem to be the demand or interest to support that price level. It could also be that they have 7.25 radius necks. I'm not sure if they all are spooked that way. Even though it's a vintage radius it's not really what most are looking for these days.

    No worries. I would note the saddle on your description. Since it's not a well known brand most people wouldn't know that it is normal.

    Just ask yourself if you would send an unknown person $2k based on the pics and description, and you should get to the right place with you ad.

    I saw this and thought it looked like a miniature case.

    Since you got it as a gift and don't have anything invested in this, sell it on your local craigslist. If that doesn't go any where, take whatever the best deal your local guitar shops offer.

    Selling gear online for someone who has zero feedback/rep and doesn't know much of anything about the gear is likely gonna be a headache; listing it accurately with good pics, packing and shipping, dealing with a fussy buyer who wants their money back, etc etc etc.

    It's a Glendale bridge ($99.99) and "Twang" saddle set ($57.99), as used by Billy Gibbons. You have to sell a buyer into wanting your guitar. Look at ll the specs and details in this ad. Buyers NEED those specs. When you buy and sell a custom guitar, especially from one that doesn't have web presence (I Googled and found nothing and the Facebook page has been defunct since 2015), you have to be able to give the specs. This isn't off the shelf, no one has any clue to neck shape and depth, pickups installed, customer wiring, weight, etc. because they are...custom and online buyers can't look over the merchandise. The fact is, it's REALLY hard to sell such an obscure brand of guitar in any market, and the market for used boutique guitars is over-saturated and very soft. Usually the only way you can get the price you want is to really give the hard sell and be patient, it may take months to find that one potential Eleven guitar buyer out there.

    But all this is silly, looks like the NEW price was $2500, take the $1700 from GC, I'm surprised they offered that much for a guitar 99.9% of the world has never heard of. Here's one sitting around for $1,950....why would someone spend $2,300?

    BTW, it's a beautiful guitar.
