A question on my Ibby and selling it

Okay, so I cant stand playing my RG370 anymore compared to my American Strat. I want ot sell it on the bay. It has a couple of dings on it, but no electrical problems. It also has an OFR installed. Would it make more sense to keep the OFR in it and sell it, or switch it out for an edge III? How much more would I get if I keep the OFR in it? Thanks!

Probably not much more if anything. Usually mods dont add to the price of a guitar but they may help it sell faster.

Alrighty then. I'll keep the OFR and save it for a future prigect or a backup or something. Thanks.
Now, how much do you think I should ask for this guitar now in USD?

Re: A question on my Ibby and selling it

300 is way too much IMO considering the guitar's got dings and chit. If you're going to put it on the bay, start the auction at 200 and do a 250 BIN. There's nothing that annoys me more than someone trying to sell a guitar and says "um, there's a few dings but it's in great condition".

Case in point, I drove 2 hours each way to meet a dude that was trying to sell me his JS1200 for 600 bucks. He had told me that there were only 2 scratches on the guitar that were less than 2" long and didn't go through the paint (I figured I could live with that for the price). The day before we met, he called me to confirm that I was still going to meet him and he surprisingly lowered the price by 25 bucks which, needless to say, surprised me so I went along with it. That saturday, I drove and met him and when he showed me the guitar, it had 2 NJFC's, numerous scratches all over the body, a weird ding that looked like a pellet had hit the guitar (it was like a bullet hole with cracks all around it, except there was no hole), and the tail of the trem was literally hitting the cavity and the front had been raised to the point that I could see underneath it and the red booties where the ball ends go. I told him what the guitar needed in terms of service and that his price was definintely too much for the condition the guitar was in and that I would give him between 300-400 at best. He had sent me pictures before but somehow was "unable to capture the scratches because they're so faint, you couldn't pick them up with a camera" (sound familiar?). So, I walked away from it. After wasting 4 hours on a saturday, he emailed me a few days later and told me he would take the 400 and that we could meet again at the same place (You can guess what was going through my mind at that point). Needless to say, I told him that I would give him 200 because of the amount of money I would have to spend to get it back to par and by the time it was all said and done I would be back up at spending 600+ on the guitar (I was thinking about sending it to Rich). He wound up selling it on the bay for 500 and some poor soul got a guitar in pretty poor shape. When I bought my JS1000 from a local guy, the only problems with the guitar were a couple of dimples on the finish that one can't really see unless you look for them (no scratches whatsoever or NJFC's).
