That video is terrible...

It's not rare, just not common.



links or it didn't happen

btw the way, since the video is horrible, what should I do?

Is there a certain way to respond to that statement, or is it just your careless opinion, btw when I'm going to make a box office hit I'll keep your sentiments in mind.

looks nice for a squier...but its still a mass produced squier. tons of older guitars are "rare" in the sense that you can't find them anymore for the obvious reason that they haven't been sold for a long time, that doesn't necessarily mean they're worth more than todays equivalent.

A Series is early Squier; it's "special" in the way a Epiphone Les Paul Special is "special."

EDIT: It's rare in the sense a Squier '51 is rare. They only made it for a few years and it never sold well, meaning it's currently hard to find.

The mass produced guitar for squire was an e series then, this is an a series that ran along side from 85-86 I believe.

Just wanted to see, the e series goes for 400-500 used.

with that in mind how much would you sell it for? I am wanting to sell it and buy a weighted action piano, but i wont be scammed, if it is more than the asking price.

"CBS was doing what most companies do to there employees on a blight to get rich, their product was more then below minimal standards"

Why exactly did you post it here? so you could argue with every reply?

How about this: you're sitting on a gold mine, man, give it a couple years and that baby will be worth a million EASY, and you'll be able to sell it, buy a grape drink factory and live the dream.

There, took the argument away from you. How does that feel.

It's not worth the wood it's made from. It cost more to ship it out of Japan than it cost to buy. It's grade A, market price firewood. It's $250 down the drain. You'd be lucky to get a dollar for every pound it weighs. It'd be more worth your time to part it, sell the neck on ebay, send the metal bits to a scrap metal buyer and burn the body than it would be to sell it as a guitar.

I apologize, could you forgive me?

I do want to be cool like rich kids and have nice guitar, friends as well.

I should shut up.

Honestly, though, it's probably only worth about $200-300. You probably won't make a profit on it if you try and flip it.

why is he selling his for 1,000?


Because just because someone is selling it for a certain price, it doesn't mean anyone would buy it for that price.

And I was saying the video was terrible as a way to tell you to take pictures instead of a shaky video, just trying to help.

because he's insane.

go on craigslist, you'll find tons of wackos who think an entry level guitar from the 80's is worth a gibson today.

Well, if I asked for a cool 10.000€ for my Ibanez Darkstone, would I get it?
Probably not (if anyone's interested, 10.000€ is the asking price).
But I could still ask for it.

i'd take the sound clip off of the ad lol

OT: You could try and flip it for more than you bought it, but I reckon it will take you a VERY long time.

EDIT:

Something must have gotten lost in translation when I was reading through the thread. I didn't watch the video and thought you were looking to buy something and then flip it. But yeah, best of luck to you in selling it.

I'm not gonna bash the trading game, i started with an epiphone SG and traded my way up to a 1600$ acoustic. but you're trying to trade apples for oranges...what are the odds of finding a pianist who wants to trade his piano for a guitar?

I have an excellent takamine, but since I am only a two year old player I may as well keep it. It will prob be worth more when Im thirty

You know you can find a weighted digital piano for as low as $300 new?
