I've popped this up on Trademe at $1 reserve as Trademe had a no fees promotion on $1 reserve auctions. I was nervous about doing a $1 reserve auction so Molly has kindly offered to bid on the auction in case it doesn't go where I want it to, so feel to bid over him :-)

If I get it for a dollar I'll expect it by next-day post. ;-)
I really want to ask RaidO what difference gigging a guitar makes. Genuinely curious.
A non-gigged guitar means that either the guitar or the player is not good enough to gig :sarc:
Gibson 335, Harmony H671, Epiphone Riviera & EJ200CE, Hagstrom Viking Bass, Doubleneck bass/guitar.
Rivera Clubster 45, SWR California Blonde, Carvin AG100D, Ashton BSK158.

Yeah I've always wondered that. I've not gigged myself since 1993, does that add or subtract to my value?

RaidO is of similar ilk to Goldplated, probably similar IQ's too

He looks great on a blacklist

My Anniversary Standard went for $3,333. So north of $3k for a clean sunburst LP seems doable.

I was thinking that - but I'd probably have to let it sit, and wait for the right buyer wouldn't I? Hopefully I can achieve something close to that, but I'm not holding my breath :-)

I would say $3k is a good asking price for a Standard in good condition like yours is, well that's as far as the buyer is concerned. Guessing an LP Classic could be a little either side of that?

You have the knowledge of what you paid for it, so as long as you get that back in your pocket after TM take their cut. Anything more than that is a nice bonus

Yeah - I listed on the no fees promotion, so even if I don't get top dollar, I'm saving $200ish in fees.

Ah perfect. Well seeing as you won't get pinged for fees I'd be happy to lay down a decent bid if you wanted me to drive it up a bit, gotta be a good thing for the auction too if there's plenty of different people bidding :wink:
