I am looking at a possible trade for a 2006 R8 plaintop. I am wondering what they currently are selling for on the used market. Not mint. Excellent condition with some back worm tracks. Washed cherry.
No way mid-2's for an '06 with belt wear...2200.00-2300.00 at most...mint would be around 2500.00-2600.00...you can find them brand new for 2800.00-2900.00.
.....of course this doesnt take into account how it feels, plays and sounds to YOU..!!!!..in that case it could adjust the price up (or down...)
I trade guitar for quite some time now and I am astonished about the second hand/used prices nowadays... I just don't get it. Why would I pay $2600,- for a used R8 if I can get one new for about $2800 - 3000??
The same goes for the situation here in Europe. Eveybody is suddeny asking stupid prices for their used (often non original/not mint) R8s. I see 2400 - 2600 very often, but you can get them new at dealers for that same amount.
If you ask me, about two-third of new price is a good used price. Id say 2000 USD/Euro if the guitar speaks to you.
