    Well I decided I was going to learn how to play a instrument this year for my new years resolution, and I was trying to decide between guitar and piano, I bought a guitar and a amp, and decided but I ended up learning how to play piano in my Music 100 class in college. So I decided I just want to buy a piano now that I already know how to read music and play some beginner pieces on piano.

    Problem is I am having a hard time selling my guitar and AMP. I tried craigslist but I am not getting any responses.

    The guitar is Ibanez RG120 and the amp is a Vox Valvetronix VT15, I am trying to sell each for $150 but I also said I would take offers yet I am not getting any responses.

    Where would I have the best chance of selling this?

    I am avoiding eBay because it will be a PITA shipping these, I never have heard of Kijji, I will look into that.

    Most music stores like Guitar Center buy used equipment. Barring that, there's always pawn shops.

    From what I hear guitar center really rips you off, if I have to I might end up doing that though :(, I did list on that kijji site.

    Post it for sale here in the Marketplace, there are several guitar players here.

    It's not a problem to ship guitars and amps, I do it all the time and can give you some advice if you want it. Just add it into the price of the guitar.

    You can also try http://thegearpage.net or Harmony Central.

    maybe reconsider you asking price and re-list cheaper on craigslist? People who buy used are often looking for a bargain and you may be asking too close to the "new" price

    Keep in mind they plan to re-sell it. It's not that they're ripping you off, it's sort of a "trade-in" price versus a "private party sale" price.

    +1 to Harmony-Central.com

    I've sold guitars and amps to other members there several times.
