    Anyway it is what it is, which is a survey of what successful people in the business "say" they ask for an item. I liked it better when it was a just vintage gear, now it tries to be a an all-encompassing blue book.

    My guess is the prices are no longer accurate after the financial debacle of last few weeks.

    Thanks. I ask because I'm often intrigued by some guitar or amp that shows up on ebay, and I have no idea what the market value of it is, so I don't know how to bid. I don't want to pay more than its worth for obvious reasons, but mainly because since I can't try before I buy, I wanted to be able to flip it for little of no loss if it isn't for me.

    The only important thing is what it's worth to you.

    Yes, except if I need to sell it or don't want it anymore, I can sell it at no loss if I paid market price. If I paid more, than I will likely sell at a loss.
