That guitar is not worth it, IMO, I've had a few Prestige models that kill that thing. There are also indentations in the top/back that were conveniently not photographed in that eBay listing (I posted pics of the damage when I listed it here, which is likely why I got shafted on my selling price... cost of being an honest seller I guess... with such a nice camera, I don't think he could possibly claim he couldn't get them to show up when I had no issue doing so with a Nikon D50). It also sold for less than $1250, FWIW, and even less from the guy I sold it to when the current owner picked it up.
Semantics. And it'd seem to me that trying to justify the pricing scheme to people who know exactly what it is, let alone exactly what it went for before, is kind of moot.
I thought someone was going to go for the STD angle, but I guess shame is just as communicable.
You can see some little indents bro!
My D40 took pretty good shots of it I thought. It is in phenomenal shape.

It's worth whatever someone is willing to pay, which is what is easily judged by listing something high and taking offers.
Someone didn't click the link You've come out and said that you take offers for sales outside of eBay to avoid the fees. That's what my link addresses.
Well, ok, I guess YOU don't do that, but I know plenty of people who contact people on ebay for deals, and I personally am just fine with not paying them 10% of my final price. THat's why a lot of guys, myself included price high on eBay. Also why I prefer dealing off of it, as I don't see a reason for my buyer to pay for my eBay fees.
Well, I do enough business and have paid thousands of dollars to eBay over the years, so I am not really concerned. Just paid them $496 today alone.
