So I want to sell my guitar, but am not sure how much it's worth. It has like 10 chips in the paint but other then that everything is great. So how much is it worth?

Lololololol. No no no no.
Put it up at $800. If you get any offers over $650, take it.

Haha I know! They go for less then that new right? You think it's still worth that even with the chips and missing locking nuts?

For myself the locking nuts would be a non issue. They're cheap and easy to find.
The severity and location of the dings could change everything. If they are typical edge and corner/horn chips, I personally again, would not care. If they are on the face and go through to the wood, you may have a $500 beater.

Yeah that's pretty much what they are and mostly on the back edge.

if you post a pic we could probably help you more.

missing locking nut pieces and a few dings on the body may not be a big deal to some of us (i wouldn't care) but may mean a lot to others.

when i look at something online i look at how well its been taken care of, missing pieces, and lots of dents don't look good.

if i was able to hold it in my hand and check it would be a whole different scenario.

just depends on the buyer.

I'm trying but it keeps saying the file is to large, and I only have my phone to work with. There are no actual dents in the guitar, it just so happens that this guitar chips soooooo easily. One time the tip of my cable hit pretty lightly and chipped the paint. I mostly just keep it in the case.

Is anything rusty? That could be a big turn off.

Nope. I literally keep it in the case all the time. It just chips really easily.
