    It plays and sounds amazing. Just got a pro setup.

    So here is how I interpret the statement "Great playing guitar, new pro setup!" Ok if it were a great playing guitar why did it need a pro setup?
    Was it actually marginal at best, and needed a setup to play in tune for more than 20 seconds? Did you have it set up because you did not really like how it played?
    If so did the pro tell you "This is as good as I can get it, with a twisted neck, needing a quarter for a shim, and marginal intonation?"
    You can think what you want, but if you are selling why the expense of a "Pro Setup" vers throwing a fresh set of strings and cleaning it up?

    Never sell a guitar to a friend, the *****ing and moaning after you give them one is bad enough...

    (Edit: The profanity filtering here really makes me laugh sometimes.)

    Why it needed a setup? Because,he used the guitar for slide. The action was high,so he lowered the action,And polished the frets,And adjusted the microphones etc. Maybe i souldnt say «pro setup»,but he is a pro,And he did a setup on this guitar :)

    As a general rule, try 65% to 75% of what a new one would sell for.

    60% in the U.S. is the norm in my experience.

    I could go with that. The point is it's not 90% to 95% as many CS guitars on eBay UK seem to be listed for. I wonder what planet some people are on.

    Problem with eBay is the 10% seller fees and another 3% if PayPal are involved.

    Tends to drive the price up.

    Ebay is 3.5 seller fees for musical instruments these days.

    There seems to be a difference between UK and USA as far as eBay seller fees go.

    I haven’t sold on eBay for some time but I just looked it up and UK fees are 10% of sale price capped at £250. USA eBay seems to have a different tiered system.

    It tends to drive the asking price up. I'm not convinced that it drives the selling price up - the market determines that, not the eBay fees.

    Used Guitar prices are region specific. Figure 60-70% of whatever new prices are in your local market.

    I agree. It's been 10% over here for years now. Why would it be a third of the price in the USA?

    You got a couple of things in your favor. . . Olympic White is one of the more desireable colors and it sounds like you got a good set up. If it's light weight, that's another plus. You should weigh it on a digital scale.

    This is a bizarre line of questioning. Whenever I sell a guitar I get it set up so it plays at its best. I mean, I get most of my guitars set up once or twice a year. Why not if I'm trying to sell it?
