      Is there a venue besides eBay? I don't want to throw this to the sharks!
      Thanks

      I may be interested. Is this an acoustic guitar or classical?

        Hi, not sure what you mean by a D guitar - obviously it won t be a dreadnaught if it is 1899 and it won t be 1899 if it is a dreadnaught. Your selling

          Hi, not sure what you mean by a "D" guitar - obviously it won't be a
          dreadnaught if it is 1899 and it won't be 1899 if it is a dreadnaught.

          Your selling mediums are e-bay - which is perfectly good as long as you
          design your auction details appropriately, but I suggest a valuation by
          someone qualified first.

          It depends whereabouts in the world you are, but another option is to sell
          by consignment through a reputable specialist dealer - who will probably
          need to take 20-25% of the sale price (partially depending on the deal, and
          partially on local tax levies.

          This is not my style of guitar any more but if you would like my assistance,
          by all means send me details an d I'll try to help as far as model info and
          age. I have read up on Martin guitars quite a lot AND I know a very
          trustworthy dealer who may be able to help you - he sells by excess guitars
          for me.
          I also know of another Martin specialist who is in stock buying mode at
          present.

          Again, depending on your locality - the forums might be worth considering.

          However, do your best to get an idea of current valuation - esp. as we are
          in a buyers market right now.

          Regards,
