Re: How much did you pay for your "Golden Age" S?
I don't think $600 is too much for a mint 89 S540LTD.
Elcid's $250 S is covered with stickers....which is fine. But it's hardly mint.
There are always going to be people that found a great deal. Usually because the seller is either someone that doesn't know what they have or just wants to get rid of it quickly and collect some cash.
I'll put it this way... I'd pay $1000 for a NOS MIJ Golden Age S series long before I'd buy a new one.... which go for anywhere from $1300 to $1500 or even more....especially if you include the Herman Li sig. If you buy a used S guitar in good condition it's going to be nicer than the new ones. So either $1500 is way overpriced for the new model or some of these used prices are ridiculously low.
Also...the only thing posting your insanely low priced S series does is help drive down the value of your guitar.
