Post Posted Rainsong shorty for sale in classifieds-SOLD

Hi All,

I posted a mint 2015 Rainsong shorty for sale in classifieds. It seems like CF guitars don't get a lot of attention in classifieds, so I'm also posting here to see if anyone is interested. Please PM me if interested. Thanks for looking.

Mods: please let me know if this post is inappropriate, I will delete it. Thank you!

The shorty looks fantastic. I am about a month out from purchasing another CF guitar so if you still have it then let me know, but I hope you do get it sold for your needs.

You must be a charter member at a small cost to advertise in the classifieds.

Unless you're trying to slip in an unrelated post about your guitar for sale without being a charter member.

To stay on-topic here, the Shorty is a great guitar, and at that price, it should go pretty quick.

My Shorty sold in 2 days after listing it in the classifieds. It has to be priced right. Not sure of the price on yours...so I'm not implying anything.

Thanks for the suggestions, I just added it to my signature block. I bought the shorty new around December last year and have only played it a few times before the shoulder pain came up this year. If anyone is interested, feel free to make an offer. I'm also interested in trades such as Taylor x12ce, 000/concert size guitars.

List price is $2666, and a good ballpark price for a used copy in mint condition is about 50% list, so $1333. His is currently $1450 shipped, which is pretty close and therefore a pretty good deal. I've actually been contemplating adding a Shorty, but the request of using PayPal "friends and family" for a merchandise purchase or paying a surcharge (both of which are against PayPal's policies) made me skip this one.

I've bought several guitars from the acoustic forum and the sellers I bought from always request me to pay by paypal friends/family. However, I can certainly do regular PayPal and cover the PayPal fees.

The 50% list formula works for brands that are more abundant, and are deeply discounted new, but not so much for Rainsong, in my experience. I see used examples selling anywhere from a low of 50% of list, to as high as 70% of list. Given that buying a used Rainsong carries little risk, I'm not surprised by some of the higher selling prices.

I wondered if it might be different for CF guitars. For me, though, ones selling at the high end of that (for a Shorty, around $1800 give or take) simply do not interest me when I can by it brand spanking new for $1999.00 Guess it's just a psychological thing of having something "brand new" for so close to the same price as a used copy.
