Explain the price of this guitar
 
Can any members find a logical reason why this instrument is listed this at $1,250? I own the same model, and had believed it was worth between $250 and $350.

Guitar in question: https://reverb.com/item/15069044-man...rc=aw.ds&pla=1

Thanks in advance.

The logical reason is that the seller of this guitar on Reverb is a crook. Plenty of them, also on E Bay.

Thanks! That makes the most sense. Wanted to make sure I wasn't overlooking something if I decide to sell.

I wouldn't say they're a crook. Most likely just misinformed. If you look at the nearly 40 other listings they have up, the prices are ore or less correct on them. They're just way way off on this one.

This listed price could be a mistake-
in knowing the real value of this guitar, a typo, a mix up of identity, or of multiple listings or somebody paid list price when they bought it.

I think a lot of Reverb prices are on the high side, though. Uninformed sellers or intentionally listed high to allow for negotiation?

Misinformed or a typo.

Probably looked it up wrong when setting their pricing.

Sometimes that works in your favor. I bought my 1973 Guild F-212 for a song on E-bay because it was priced like a GAD (Chinese) instead of a US Guild.

I think we took care of this in your other post.

That'd be my guess as well. It's been posted for 5 months so that tells you something. Also, I have a Manuel Rodriguez C11C and there aren't a lot of other posts of them for sale. I had a hard time figuring out if it was a fair price before I bought it.

The seller might have looked at one post that might have been for a different model before he priced this one.

Facebook marketplace is worse. Lots of way-overpriced gear.

It's simple, you're free to price whatever you have to sell at any price you want. Want $10k out of your Esteban, then price that sucker at $10k. You're not going to sell it, but you have the right to price it for as much or as little as you want.

Jcamp 01-28-2019 07:01 PM

My guess is that itís a typo. He probably meant to type $250 and fat fingered the 1 in there by mistke

Thanks all.

That post was deleted -- apologies for the double post -- I was looking for more opinions so I created this post.

Old joke, no time to write it all out, punchline is

"Yeah, but I only have to sell one."

muscmp 01-29-2019 01:24 PM

you would have to ask the person selling as they are responsible for making that decision. you can find thousands of similar situations on ebay, reverb and even here. sometimes, tho, i think that people, after the fact, realize that they paid way too much and are attempting to get it back. sorry, please educate yourself first.

play music!
