Re: Insane LNG Sale!??!

I would but I'd rather sell to a forum guy I sorta know instead of some eBay guy that will try to scam me or something

What's insane? Very clean guitar, look at that fretboard. Would be nice if it was better cased though. BTW he is a member here and it was in the classified here also [IIRC]

Re: Insane LNG Sale!??!

What's insane are the few, great condition, LNG's here that were sold for less than 4 G's. I personally wouldn't have been able to pay that much for that LNG, but I wouldn't have expected it to be sold for any less than $4,500.

You're thinking of Bryan C's. His went for like 4500ish i think.

Re: Insane LNG Sale!??!

with that condition ? it's not insane.
I'd pay for it if I'm looking for one.
considering a time machine is not (yet) exist, so 5K for a 'almost like new' LNG does make senses.

Exactly. A very clean example of a Chesbro LNG. What I think is insane is people asking over $4k for a bunch of player LNG's with really dirty boards.

Re: Insane LNG Sale!??!

LNG's in general will cover a wide range in price, probably because of the collectability factor. Seemingly small things like clean boards, case candy, etc will shoot the price way up.

Not very long ago, $5000 would get you basically an unplayed HUSA case queen with all the case candy. Guitars like the one you're selling were sub-$3000 guitars. Player guitars over $4k is a very recent development.

Re: Insane LNG Sale!??!

Global economics. For me, USD 5000 today is 30-35 % less than what it was 10 years ago. In that respect it would be cheaper to buy the guitar today for $5000 than it would be to pay USD 3500 10 years ago.
