I have a friend at a reputable music store that has a used 2012 VOS R9 in Bourbon Burst that he's asking $3900 for. I have just started getting my feet wet looking for a good R9 and I'm thinking that for a 12' this is a bit high. A bunch of research that I've done has led me to believe that the 2013 and 2014 models are the best in terms of quality. This 2012 is in decent shape but the back appears to have some wear. I saw a couple on eBay that sold for considerably less than this but I'm not sure why or if they're any different. Is this a good price for one used, or should I wait for a good deal on a 2013 or 2014? Money isn't really a problem, it's more about the value of the investment. He's a very good guy, and I've had good experience with him and his shop, so I don't doubt his credibility, I just don't know enough about these yet to know what I should pay for one, and the limited research I've done says to look at 13'/14' models. What say you?
