My RT150- need to sell...but at what price?

I think I might need to sell my RT150

If I do end up selling it, it'll need to be fairly speedy...

This was a player guitar. I used it for pretty much everything, and it has the some minor scars to prove it. No paint chips or anything, but dings and scratches here and there. It looks pretty clean until you take a closer look. The most serious damage came from the original owner. I have no idea what happened, but I thought it looked cool, lol. Maybe I'll be able to get some natural light pics tomorrow to show you guys the exact condition.


How much do you guys think I'll be able to sell it for? I'm hoping at least 200 bucks, since that's how much I got it for... Thanks.

Looks like some finish checking on that headstock.

Maybe it went through some serious temperature swings, got left in the sun, or got whapped on the headstock at some point. Who knows. As long as it's not in the wood, it's not that big a deal - you can advertise it as "relic'd!"

$200 might be a stretch unless you've upgraded the pickups and such, especially if it's a little beat up. The RT450's get decent money, but the lower models don't do quite as well, generally speaking.

Some more pics to give you guys a better idea. Had a hard time capturing the damage, even with macro mode, so I just got some pics of the entire thing. Shows the checking on the back (doesn't get to the playing part of the neck), and the finish crack on the heel.

So 200 is kinda asking too much, huh?

What would be a good price?

I just bought an RT150 off **** 6 months ago for 120$ plus another 30$ in shipping. It had a few chips on the backside, but the headstock was perfect. Sorry you have to sell your guitar. I think the RT's are actually pretty nice.
