Selling prices for like new guitars?

What's a fair percentage for selling a guitar that is used, but virtually new? I'm selling a guitar that I bought new a few months ago for $600, which has barely been played and doesn't have a single scratch or ding on it, and I'm having a tough time figuring out a fair but worthy asking price.

You'll probably be doing well to get $400 for it. The Schecter Diamond Series are great guitars for the $ but, like most Korean made guitars, don't hold their value well.
