    You don't see those very often, I'd start at 350€ and see where it leads you. You can always drop the price later.

    I'm selling a jackson dxmgt (MiJ) and an ibanez tr-70. Locally/ftf, I'm looking for $375 for the jackson and $200 for the ibanez. Both in great condition with a few upgrades and a unique finishes.

    I am not getting squat for hits. Not even low ball offers. I think they're pretty cute guitars at a fair price but maybe I'm far off on this one? Is it just a bad time for selling?

    Prices seen fair, I just don't think the market is very kind to either of those models specifically.

    If I were you I'd hold out till after the holidays. If they don't move by then, maybe pull the upgraded pickups and slam the price. Maybe try to wrangle a trade for something that might move a little faster.

    Same.. not just with my gear but I've seen awesome gear sitting for weeks or months at rediculously low prices. I don't have the funds the buy it all myself.

    Typical end of summer slow down. Everyone has either spent their money on vacations or school/school supplies.

    Next month folks will start holiday shopping and in January they'll be fat with gift money/willing to splurge on themselves.

    Things will go dead again after that, until March, which is tax refund time.

    No one has funds lol. It's all a huge cycle of guys just selling gear to fund and buy new gear. Unfortunately we're at a dead stop right now where no one is making moves to keep the cycle going. All it takes is just one person to get some real cash to buy another persons gear to get this wheel rolling.

    You'd think.. I used to have the funds to buy cool stuff. Now I have a wife and a 1-year old, a house and bills to pay. Guitars became a luxury item and there are lots of things to buy in the house before I have cash for new gear.

    Hi guys,

    Thinking of selling my Aristides 070. Only reason is because I might get a 070r, since it’s actually more resonant than a 070, and I’m pretty sure I can sell mine more than the R will cost so it’s a win win situation.

    Anyways its a rainbow sparkle, Floyd Rose and piezo equipped guitar that’s in mint condition and I’ve only had it since June (unfortunately I was like a month too soon in putting in my build to just get an R from the start), that I paid like $6k for. Could I sell it for $4k? $4500?

    The market seems pretty saturated with these. Of the 30 or so on Reverb, the most expensive is only around $3500, and it doesn't look like they're getting many offers. Most 070 models seem to be asking around $2800.

    When it comes to custom pieces like this you're pretty much stuck waiting for the right buyer.

    I'd guess 3k max unless you're super lucky and someone is dying to have that exact configuration, and its not really a popular/typical Aristides type configuration

    Some nice 070s have been going closer to the 2k mark, everything seems to have depreciated a bit since the R series came out under 3k brand new

    not exactly a guitar, but what's a decent price for a Mesa slant back 4x12 with v30s?
    there's one going for like 550 usd nearby

    Depending on the condition that seems pretty fair. I've seen them used anywhere from $450 (noticeably worn/beat up) on up to $700+ if it's in excellent condition or has some special order grill cloth or tolex combo.
