ok so my friend wants to sell me his gibson sg faded in worn cherry. now there are couple deep scratches in the wood since there isn't a coating of finish on the body. the neck has some wear and now hes looking for 500. when he bought it from a friend of mine for 450. overall the condition its around 7/10.

fellas. do you think what hes doing is reasonable?

edit: he stats the scratches has nothing to do with the tone and therefore its worth it. and beside its a gibson,


david(cheapass): still the price went up 150 dollars
kyle: so what
kyle: thats the new price
kyle: urs is used
david(cheapass): i should charge you more
kyle: why cause u scratched it up more?
kyle: how is that logical
david(cheapass): its more valuable
david(cheapass): its worth is more than it was
david(cheapass): regardless of the scratches
david(cheapass): its the name that counts
kyle: scratches are the key factors of the price
david(cheapass): and the quality of the sound
david(cheapass): not the appearance

edit 2
david: you stupid
kyle: and ur cheap
david: i aint selling it less than 450
kyle: i just feel sorry for whoever ur going to ripp off
david: yeah

edit:3
kyle: whats the cosmetic condition
kyle: out of 10
kyle: do u think urs fall under
david: 7
kyle: so 7/10

I have one, bought it new for about 500 or 600.

I think he's asking a bit much for a used guitar.

TS's friend is an idiot. I got it for $500 brand new. Tell him youll give him 350, dont let him haggle you past 400.

The Gibson SG Specials won't be worth more than they cost new for quite some years, pay him 350.
