Well, buying a cheap guitar, that's worth more, and selling it for way more than you bought it for is basically just trying to get money out of the deal. If you were only set back $150, then why sell it for $800 other than to get $650 in your pocket? Why not be nice and unload a beautiful guitar on someone who can't afford a new one? You could even sell it for $200, and earn $50 out of the deal so you're not losing money, you're gaining.
My point is, you can tell them how much you paid for it, and how much it's worth, and people will congratulate you on the good deal, until you jack up the price to the point that you're just trying to make some money on the deal.
My point is: If you are out $150 for a guitar, then selling it should at least pay back that much, and maybe a little extra if you want. But selling it for a much higher amount is just greed in my opinion.
But I guess that's all it is, opinion.
