OK so I have this 59 fender that was my grandfathers, he was preacher and took very good care of it, it's near mint, has all original parts(even the ash tray) and case. It even have the original key and chain holding it to the handle for the lock on the case. I talked with a vintage guitar shop and was advise to first try and sell it at the Dallas Guitar show, so I wouldn't have to pay the %20 fee and wait for him to find a buyer. I want around $20,000 for the guitar, now the price is negotiable especially if paying cash. I know this price is lest then retail from researching other sales of this guitar(one in bad shape sold from guitar center for $1800, I believe retail it should go for $22,000 to $24,000. I mentioned the prices to the vintage guitar show and was told this price is reasonable for a retail sell. What I want is advice about who I should go about trying to sell it at the show, for example do I go to every booth and say hey want to buy or do I watch around with the case waiting to be approached. What warning signs should I look out for in regards to someone trying to rip me off. In advance thank for your time.
