I will be going to visit Chicago for the first time ever in a few weeks.  One of my main goals is to try and get a good deal on a guitar (hopefully a Les Paul).

I am wondering what is the oniline listing website if an ordinary Joe (not a store) wants to sell his guitar online.

Here in Canada, we have kijiji if someone wants to sell something used online.  Is ebay the main website most people use for U.S. cities?  Is there another site?

Also, what are a few good stores or large pawnshops that are known to have a good selection of used guitars that I should check out?  I did some googling, but wanted to get some first hand recommendations from the fine people on this board.

thaks much

You could probably go onto craigslist to buy somebody's guitar.  For specific pawnshops or guitar stores, you could probably ask for some advice on the craigslist Chicago music community page.
