Re: Help with realistic valuation please: RG2570
I don't live in the UK, but due to the rarity of quality guitars in this backwater, I find myself watching UK small ads sites. I picked up a slightly newer version of this model last year for €450, but the guy selling it was departing the country in a hurry and just wanted the cash. If you play the long game £400 to £550 is possible, there are always people out there who will sell them for the price of a Squier and there are others who think they're selling a Bentley. I once bought an LP Custom from a guy outside a guitar shop in London for £450, simply because the shop would only offer him £400 and the guy who was a real geezer had his teeth knocked out in a fight with his girlfriend's husband and needed £450 to have them fixed. I sold it a couple of years back for €2000. I simply held out against all the silly offers until there were none on the market and someone was willing to make a sensible offer. Always list it for more than you want so if you're in the 500 region add 50 or a ton, if you're at the 1k to 2k range add a couple of ton to allow for haggling.
