    I'm parting with my stuff, and just wondering how best to do it. For instance, I have bunches of switch tips, Gibson-style speed knobs, instrument screws etc... Do builders buy 'lots' of these things for future builds, or do you usually buy individually for single use purposes?

    I buy in bulk, and I don’t even build that much. List ‘em!

    Put them on ebay as a lot at a decent price and they'll sell.

    I'd buy something like that off Reverb if the seller included some specifics in the description and it matched something I need.

    I buy wood in batches. Hardware not so much.

    Bought four sets of nylon tuners and eight to twelve (I can't remember and too lazy to go down and look) SS sets. Tops for acoustics, I bought 30 sets once, thought I was done buying them but a deal came around and I bought a bunch, then a bunch more. My problem is stopping at the lumber yard and finding some wood that is guitar worthy and I buy it. I really should only have bought half the wood I have.

    I don't build enough to justify having large amounts of parts but, if I did, I'd certainly be interested in buying large lots of parts. I have other hobbies where I've collected parts. I've got tons of Harley parts for example, way more than I'll ever need. I'd say list em out there for a resonable price and I'm sure someone will snatch em up! Good luck!

    When my local guitar shop closed I bought his junk box.
