If you post something for sale and the item gets sold, please POST A REPLY to the original message saying that it is sold. The moderator will see the reply and lock the topic. There is no need to email the moderator.
Use of the Classified Ads section to sell steel related items is generally free*, but most folks send a donation when they sell a big ticket item through the Forum. The conventional donation amount is 2.5% of the selling price of the item ($25 for a $1000 instrument, for example). You can send your donation by check or money order payable in US funds to:
<blockquote><b>The Steel Guitar Forum
148 South Cloverdale Blvd.
Cloverdale, CA 95425</b></blockquote>
For your convenience, we also accept credit card donations via PayPal. Click here for a page with a PayPal Donation payment button.
*Note that we require people who drive traffic to their ads on other sites (EBay, Craigslist, etc.) to pay the Forum a 2.5% finders fee if the item is bought by a Forum member.
Remember that the Forum is supported by your donations and by sales from the Forum Catalog. Without that income, we couldn't keep it going.
