    A note about selling overseas. A guitar or preamp, maybe even a poweramp if there is an extremely low price can be a good deal for a european guy.
    A full sized amp head ? With the shipping: not a chance. Remember the shippign gets added to the value for tax % so it's a double hit.
    Plus, remember the 110V/220V thingy, yes while having a cheap mesa amp is nice, having a mesa amp 90% as expênsive as in europe AND a mandatory transformer isn't.

    TLDR: I wouldn't bother trying to sell a non boutique amp head overseas.

    100$ is what I pay to ship a guitar, I doubt an amp head will cost the same.

    ^I think I paid about $120 for the Mesa I imported on someone's behalf, though that was from a company so it may have been subsidised.

    Last guitar was about $65 but took three weeks. Most I've spent on a guitar was $110 but the guy was pushing it a bit... The amp is heavier sure but not enough to outweigh the fact that it's so much smaller I don't think.

    I guess it depends on a lot.

    Been trying to sell my Schecter Hellraiser V7.

    I keep seeing the C7s come and go and the V is very rare to find.- I also know theC7s were cheaper.

    What do you think is a fair price?

    I bought it new and aside from a ding on the tip of the headstock and a tiny nick on the back pf the neck it is mint.

    Thanks

    Hey guys! Two guitars that I want to sell, but need your advice, need money to buy a 7-string of another SS.org user.

    1. An Ibanez RG570 from -01. (Pre-prestige, MIJ). On half major ding on the body. Bought it for roughly 550$. There comes strap locks and a Levy Stretch strap with it. Think I can get more for it? Think he sold it for cheaper than what it was worth...

    2. A Schecter Omen Extreme (Diamond Series, MIC). Bought it for roughly 450 $, brand new -10. No dings anywhere, bought a new bridge so it´s more quality there. There´s B-E-A-D-G-B on it right now.

    Maybe to the EU it isn't as viable, but there are a few guys over on HCAF who have made a living shipping Mesa, and similar, amps to places like Russia and the smaller Southeast Asian nations.

    It was only like 150-200ish to ship my mesa to finland when I calculated it. Kind of absurdly cheap, I thought it would be much more.

    What do you guys think is a good price for an Ibanez RG1451? I'm not selling it...my friend wants to buy it, but doesn't know if $450-550 is a good range for a minty used one. Thoughts?

    a few nicks here and there, everything functions as it should.
    Just haven't been able to jive with it. Small frets, neck shape is meh, Blazes BLOW....
    I'd honestly rather buy an RG2127z or start a custom fund.

    Is $600 a fair price for a 7421xl in good condition, with the usual exception of a few small chips in the finish and light scratches?

    I am trying to buy a RG7621 from another ss.org user..
    It's in natural wood colour (black paint removed), hipshot bridgr, oiled and waxed, includes a new hardcase, Seymour Duncan PU's, including shipping from Germany to Sweden for 769€.
    I think it's a bit overrated... Whatya think?

    Seems a little high, but RG7621s are a bit pricier overseas. I don't think a basic oil/wax refinish should add so much to price, it's not exactly expensive or difficult to do.

    I have a SC-207 LTD 7-string guitar. (Stephen Carpenter's Signature Model 7 String) It is black, in mint condition, has an EMG 81 and 85, snap on strap locks and camouflage DiMarzzio strap. I've got an ESP hardcase that I am including with it. Im asking $400. Is that reasonable?
