    There's your answer.
    Worst case, accept it as a $50-$75 loss on your asking price.
    Best case, the used market continued to blossom to insane levels and, if you don't bond with it, you can flip the ASAT for $500 in a few months.

    The guitar will, should you decide to, be much easier to sell than the amp.
    Amp shoppers are weird and fussy, particularly in the market other than Fender/Vox/Marshall.
    Blackstar are great amps, but they have some haters because of early QC/reliability issues.

    there's a lot of them out there it seems...and if you don't own a G&L you should. Even the Indonesian ones are pretty nice guitars.

    It's on the Reverb listings.
    You have to have a Reverb account and be logged in. Search for whatever you want to search for, click one of the "Featured Listing" links, and scroll down.

    I've got an S500 and H-S-S Climax... both 3-bolt Fullerton models from the mid 90s.
    The S500 was my #1 for many years. The Climax was always just another one for the collection and probably has less than 50 hours play time on it, but I couldn't turn down the price when it was offered.

    One of the 2 guitars I sold and still regret to this day was a S500! I was an idiot.

    Have you tried listing your stuff here?

    https://www.sweetwater.com/used/how-it-works

    Not a lot of traffic. Mostly because I don't think word's gotten out about it and SW really doesn't make any dough so they're not really promoting it. But listing stuff is easy.

    It's like CL with a wider potential reach and no fees or taxes. Costs nothing but a few minutes of your time. Might as well sit there as well as CL if you're just waiting.

    You'll have to fill out a questionaire and sign a non disclosure for a private tour.

    Haven't heard back from the guy in 43 minutes and 23 seconds.

    His last message said it comes with a hard shell case.

    And now I have raging gas.

    Great.
