Thread Name: Valuing a Gibson
Subject: RE: Valuing a Gibson
Keep in mind that the price for seemingly like instrments in the U.K. and the U.S. can be very different. I would guess that the 2000 offer from a dealer is more (at the current exchange rate) than this guitar would retail for in mint condition in the U.S. It is certainly not a 2000 Euro guitar at present!

When data points are available from eBay; that is the most reliable and accurate indicator that I know of.

The $499 price (cited 3 years ago) on Harmony Central was a good price at that time. I bellieve that I have seen them listed for over $1000 (U.S.) since then; though I do not know that they sold at that price.
