Not my experience, both as a buyer and a seller. On the buying side: I found a 4000 dollar Lieber Spellbinder in excellent + condition for 1200. A 2000 buck Breedlove Premier in mint condition for 1100, and a 1995 GNL legacy in mint condition for 750 bucks. All great deals. On the selling side, I look at the fair market value and price it on the lower side. Usually selling in a few weeks at the most. People scoop that up when it’s priced right. Never thought of profit. The guitars were already paid for. I just wanted something else.
