    Sounds like a great guitar.
    Unfortunately you take a hit on Andersons in resale.
    I'd say the high side would be $1800+/-
    The low side would be $1500+/-

    Good luck!

    Thanks, was hoping it be more as the thing cost $3k new. Too bad they don't hold their value as much as hoped.

    Yeah its a bummer that they dont hold value and I really dont know why. I've bought and sold quite a few Andersons. Most people take excellent care of them so they're usually in great shape, even when used for many years.
    Same with Suhr.

    Good luck with your sale!!

    I think it's cause there are more of them around then some other booteek brands.
    I love Andersons - I have three. But I don't expect them to keep their value. And something fairly straightforward, like a Hollow T, I'd buy used.

    You're shopping the wrong dealer if the best they can do is $3K on that one.

    +1 You got screwed if you paid $3k.

    Unfortunately there a ton of TAG Trans Butterscotchs out there. The only thing unique about yours is the .070 over. If you are serious about moving it you need to be in the $1,500 range.

    Would love to know who charged you $3k. I'd be surprised if the guitar even retailed for that.

    What it is worth and what you will get selling it are two different animals.
    I sold two Anderson's this year, took a beating on one and did ok on the other. They have horrible resale.

    Going strictly from your description I would have to agree with the $1500 range.

    Or even slightly lower.

    I had a pair of em, and they ended up going for a little less than $1500 each.

    Shame, but that's reality.
