My guitar price database

Unread post by balston11 »

As many of you know I keep a record of Ebay UK sales and publish them on my website here
http://www.alston-family.co.uk/guitarin ... ndexgi.php
I started this because I was buying and selling a few guitars and it was useful to me. I thought I might as well publish them to other members and visitors to my website. I am now hardly buying or selling anything so I am considering stopping recording and publishing sales but if enough people find them of use I may continue.
Any thoughts

There is no doubt Bill that you have created a valuable resource there, but I can only imagine the TIME it must consume?

I wonder if any of the programming gurus in here could devise a Macro to extract Pricing from an Ebay "Watch" List?

I'm sure Ebay are not slow to use OUR data when we go searching? :roll: :roll: :roll:

It's massively useful to KNOW what these instruments are fetching when you are looking to buy, but I can

understand completely your stance on this. . .

Let's see if an elegant solution is possible?

If it were possible to do this I would certainly be happy to keep the watch list but the problem is getting the exact models Ebay sellers will say things like Yamaha Pacifica but no model details etc.

I have often thought about doing something like this myself Bill but the time involved in keeping prices updated is monumental! If it could be automated in some way that would be useful but I don't have those sort of programing skills :(

The bulk of the work is in keeping the Fender lists up to date so I have decided to drop those and continue to update the Yamaha, Burns and Westone lists.

Thanks for this. I'm currently planning to let go of a pair of guitars and pick up a new Yamaha SA2200 or an older MIJ 335-style from Yamaha. Your work on prices and general information is proving quite useful.
