I edited my post, please read it!
And I don't think the value will go up, unless you hold it for a couple of years. And even then it's not sure!

I'm not a specialist on this!

Dude if you sell it at a pawn shop or like a music go round you'll probably get 500 bucks or less, a horrible rip off, but the real retail for a good condition one would probably be 700-850

For on ebay you could probably get $700, assuming you have lots of good feedback. If you are a new user, do not expect more than $600. I do not think you will get more unless you hold onto it for another thirty years.

You'd probably have more luck in a private sale locally (newspaper ad). But still, don't expect more than about $750 -800 or so at most. SG Specials aren't exactly guitars that are highly sought after. If you hang on to your guitar for 20 years and keep it in mint condition, then it may increase in value. Otherwise, you're taking a 25% loss on what you paid for it.

700 for a special? It's like $100 less then that new at guitar center/musicians friend.
#10
I have an SG special also you'd get about $650
I bought mine for $450 so i'd actually make a profit but my sg isn't too good condition
If you know what I mean

Sold mine with a Dimarzio Super Distortion for 680 on ebay.
Special, not faded, wine red. Real nice with case.
(Bought it for 525, though)

$800 plus sales tax turns into roughly $900 or more (depending where you live). $700 for a used model in mint condition is not unreasonable.

Why sell it when you can give it to me. I'd hold on to it until you have enough money on top of what the guitar is worth so you can make up for a $300 loss and not worry about it. $1000 is overpriced in the first place.

$800 in the newspaper with the case shouldn't be *too* hard to get.

You have to factor in the price its gonna cost you to put the add in the newspaper compared to taking another $50 off for online sales.
