I have a 2001 Limited Edition Epiphone Les Paul Standard in blue and it's used, but in very nice condition as I never used it much. I was wondering about how how much guitar center would give me for it or of they do trades?

Thank you!

Guitar center gives you 50% cash of the current used going rate or 60% if your trading it towards something. So just look on the gc website and see if anything similar is on there.

Much less than ebay
RG351DX - Bridge Dragonfire Screamer, Mid+Neck Fender Hot Noiseless
Peavey Valveking 112 - Eminence GB128
AMT E1 > Joyo AC Tone > Dan'o EQ > Shimverb > Digidelay

$200, being generous. Probably closer to $150.

Just put it up on Craigslist. You'll probably be able to get around $300 selling it yourself.

With a guitar like that, no one really cares (to the point of paying extra) if it's a limited edition or anything.

EDIT: Is it the 1959 limited edition?

Craigslist it and get more money for what it's actually worth. GC and other stores take into account resale value and need to make a profit of taking in used gear, so they'll usually give you a certain percent off it's actual used value.

List it for a $100 or so more than you actually want for it, that way you'll have a way of 'negotiation'.

That's kind of extreme for such a (relatively) low priced item. No one is going to bother emailing someone trying to sell an Epi Std for $400 or more.

I agree with the concept though.

I don't know how the American market works, so you're probably right.

be careful with Guitar Center Canton. I sold a red Squier Affinity P-bass (good condition) because I didn't need it and needed cash. Tyler told me it he could only sell it for $79 and gave me $40. Day later, a very similar red Squier bass was posted for $119. Last time I deal with him. GC never answered my emails asking about that. EBay or classified sales would be better.
Alas. BBB won't take a complaint about that, but it sure seems dishonest.

GC used is probably the worst place you can sell your guitar.

The reason why you get such good deals buying a used guitar from GC is because they screw the seller over. They're there to make a profit from you, not give you a reasonable deal.

You're far more likely to get a decent sale on Ebay.
