Epiphone SG G-400 Goth Worth

Hello, I'm new here so I'm sorry if this thread would be better somewhere else, but this seemed right.

I'm going to be selling this guitar but really have no idea how much it is worth or even how to figure out its worth. Online I've found huge ranges of prices, so I don't know what's realistic.

I read that it's been discontinued, but I'm not sure whether that means it is now worth more or less or if the worth is unchanged.

Can somebody help me please? I'm going to sell it to a friend so I'll lower the price a little but I don't want to sell it for like 100 when it's worth 500. So does anybody have any idea on how much this would be worth?

(Second hand of course. Good condition.)

Thank you.

G400's can be had for about 150-170 used. I'd make an offer of 180 and see how he responds.

$150 would be a fair price so 150GBP would be about right I'd think since most prices are the same number just $ or GBP

Generally 50% off the new price (whatever it was) is a starting point.
That Epiphone has no vintage or other special value that would add to the price.

That 50% off the new price is definitely not true in all used markets. My experience in Sweden is that the used value of a guitar lies somewhere between 75% and 50% depending on what guitar and brand.

True enough. I've been finding the occasional "recent" Agile in Guitar Centers for just barely under their new price (!). Epiphones don't fare as well, dropping off rapidly from new. Craigslist asking prices are all over the map, of course, and you have no idea what something actually sells for when a buyer is standing at the front door waving cash and the wife is standing behind you with her hands on her hips.
