    I'm fairly sure it's close to 13% with Ebay and PayPal fees.

    Yup! Bend over :D

    Get advertising it on some UK guitar forums first, but be prepared for not much interest if you sign up purely for that purpose.

    I sold a phone for £150 on ebay and they took about £21. :(

    So yeah, £45 sounds about right.

    Aye, so it does. For 45 days and as many photos of the item you want. Have I got that right?

    I think you're limited on photos on Gumtree, but you can always host them and link to them.
    Put it up for sale on the Ultimate Guitar forums, there's plenty of UK members on there who may be interested.
