    OS models usually go for 1700-1900 USD ime, they generally hold their value pretty well. Custom shop bodens/made2measure/j-series hold their value even better due to not being as common on the used market. Even the Strictly 7 bodens still go for 2k+ easy

    So music zoo has some 6s for 1900. https://www.themusiczoo.com/products/strandberg-boden-original-electric-guitar-red
    And then they usually sell used for 1500-1700?
    Does that sound right?

    Thanks man. Do you know if that music zoo price is about right? It's not a special sale price right.

    I was in the market for a new six, but came across this Xiphos 7 locally at too good a price to pass up.

    Pics- http://imgur.com/gallery/1WOCC

    I may or may not keep it, because I don't need another seven at the moment, but on the other hand, I've always liked these, and they don't seem to come up too often. The previous owner put on a different volume knob, and some kind of Duncan in the bridge. Still has the stock D-activator neck.

    Anyway, it plays and sounds great, but it's got cosmetic flaws (pictured in above link)- some dings and scratches, a chip on the back lower horn, missing truss rod cover, and some gunk and rust (or tarnishing? not sure) on the bridge. After cleaning the bridge and maybe finding a truss cover, what could I reasonably expect for it, without a case?

    Anybody have an idea for ballpark value on a Schecter C1 Custom in very good condition with hard case?

    To clarify, I think it's the see-thru blue one with the SD Custom Custom and 59, NOT the one with the Schecter Pasadena pickups.

    I really wanna try the pasadena pickups as I'm originally from Pasadena, CA, and that's why they were named that.

    There doesn't seem to be much of a european market for used Kiesels so I have no idea how to price mine. I have a VM8 I bought in 2016, black limba body, maple/black limba neck, in vintageburst. If I spec it right now it goes up to 2049$, which after import taxes into Germany (for example) would turn into a little over 2000€. The guitar is in immaculate state, a true case queen. I was thinking about listing it for 2000€ actually, thinking that cutting the wait time down to a couple of days and being able to provide as many photos and videos as the prospective buyer might need would be some added value. What do you guys think?

    I'd start more conservative in your price. any guitar loses 50 percent in value the minute you take it home. However, you can sorta fudge the numbers based on the guitar itself, especially because yours is a fan fret, it's still a very niche market so it will be hard to move if it's priced too high. I'd look at 1500 euros, and lower it if it doesn't sell at that price.

    As there's no EU seller of Kiesels you should be able to sell it for quite a bit more than on the US market. If possible, check if there are other 2nd hand Kiesels, maybe Carvins, in the EU and just compare.

    Here e.g. the price difference on a Carvin DC127 between UK and US seems quite large:

    Anyone know what an RG1570L (lefty) would go for? in this condition? I've seen them around Reverb but many of them are pretty chipped, scratched , etc. This one looks to be all stock, and it's in really clean condition, except for 3 small nicks that are pretty minor. Frets look nice, and the neck looks like it was hardly played.

    Edit: i'm listing this on eBay
