I've been looking at used electro-acoustics on Ebay. I've seen a decent one which retails at around £400 (UK). I've just contacted the seller for more details, but it looks in good condition and I imagine it's around 2 years old. It also has a good hard case with it. What sort of price would you expect to pay for it? I just don't know how quickly guitars lose value, and what percentage of the original price they usually go for.

Sorry I've not given more details about it, make/model etc, but don't want to encourage any competition

Thanks.

Dude, we need much more information. How can we possibly expect to give an estimate of price if we don't know what it is? Is it a chinese POS or a Gibson SJ-250 Monarch, or something in between?

At very least, I'm not gunna snake your guitar. I already have nice acoustic and I live in Australia anyway.

Agreed. We can't do anything to help you out until we know who makes it, what model, etc.. Also, a link to the actual item(s) in question would be nice.

No, because if he did that, people would bid on it and make him pay more.

Ok, lets all just agree that I'm an idiot

I'm not willing to bring attention to the guitar I've seen, so just forget about it. Thanks for all of your help anyway

EDIT to say that I'm a slow typer, and have now seen that I'm not necessarily an idiot any more.

Well, at least we tried.. If nothing else, take the guitar in question, and compare it to others from around the net, especially in your area. Hopefully, you'd be able to come to a conclusion as to whether or not it's worth it, bro. *shrug*

There is a Tanglewood TW45 NSb on there right now with 7 days to go, get in on that.

Other than what I have (in my and others opinion) that is the best VFM in that bracket you will get.

Retail is about £500, you should be able to get it for £250.

If it is that Tak you are looking at, it's a G series so wont have many solid parts...nice though.
