How much does a used guitar go for generally (excluding vintage equipment)?
Breaking stereotypes by playing indie on a metal guitar.

Current Gear
- Epiphone Les Paul Standard (Plus Top)
- Crappy Strat Copy (Redecorated, looks snazzy)
- Ibanez Acoustic/Electric Guitar
- Ibanez RG1570 Mirage Blue
- Peavey Vypyr 30 Watt

Stuff is worth what people will pay for it. If you're looking to sell you might find someone whose really interested in it and it will be worth more to him than the next person.
If video games make you violent, does monopoly make you a millionaire?

Oh I meant to say what percentage of the original guitar. Like a guitar bought for $1000? Generally it seems like its about 50%

Depends on the year, who made it and what kind of guitar it is.

But generally the year doesn't matter unless we're talking like 1990 and before.

So like a 1956 Fender Strat was probably $200 in '56 (IF that!), and it's now, oh, around $45,000.

Depends on the guitar, condition, and the demand for that model.

Also, the more a guitar was new, the more you should expect to lose value.

A guitar that was, say $400 new, the person probably wouldn't want to sell it for less than $250 if possible ($150 loss).
If that person had a guitar that was $1000, they would most likely look to sell it for no less than $600 ($400 max loss).

i agree with this.

if it's a mainstream guitar (LP, strat, etc) non-american made in near mint condition then i'd expect up to 80% on ebay where prices are inflated. can't be something other than a 'universally accepted', demand is key.

for american then i'd expect 90-100% retail price.

that's generally speaking of course. there are those collectible, rare, signature guitars but they are a very small part of the market.
