Considering buying an E-II, but I feel like I won't get that much money for it if I sell it simply because it's an E-II and not an ESP Standard, even though it's the same guitar.

If I bought an ESP E-II Eclipse and kept it in excellent condition do you think I'd be able to sell it for above $1000?

what do they go for used on ebay? that will answer your ? check the finished sales and see what the average is.

E-II guitars don't have a good resale value. They're a steal for the buyer though. I picked up my E-II Horizon for $700 used and it goes for $1700 new. As from what I've seen though if you sold it would between $900-$1000

There are some personal owned E-II Eclipses on Reverb for $1000 - $1100 now. New they are $1600 - $1700

That ratio seems higher than a 50-60% resale number for many other guitars.

Don't expect to make a profit or to break even buying new and then reselling later.

Consider for a moment that I got my ESP NT7 for roughly $400. Deal of the century to be sure, but like, they go in the same range.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Well if you're worried about the resale value, why not let someone else take the depreciation hit and buy used?
