Guess it's worth what someone is willing to pay.

But if it goes anywhere near that price I'll be amazed What a Face

Ooooh... probably a little over-priced, but looks really, really good!!

You realise, fellas that this upward price trend is here to stay because people now know about these guitars, and that other people like us are willing to pay good prices to collect them! The days of cheap Matts from the online auctions are truly numbered and may in fact be behind us!!

John sad....

That depends on the economy. It wouldn't take a large percentage of misery sales to flood the market and push prices down. Not on topic here, but I think the real pain of the recession is still to come.

You may well be right, but perceived value is a funny thing....

"Knife-Edge vibrato tailpiece"

Is that what it's called?

Does look in pretty good nick, but £300 is a bit steep. I thought about sticking my Blue MX on with a reserve of around £100. Has anyone here made him an offer yet?

Just noticed he's selling a pheonix aswell. Looks like a guitar dealer going by his other items.

This was re-listed, but still didn't sell, although best offer on it was £240!!!

I thought that was a decent offer aswell.

Yep... that was me. I've got it under offer atm.... Not, I hasten to add at anything like the asking price!! The seller seems a decent sort and has a collection of Westone guitars including a Prestige 250, Rainbow II and an Electra X195 that he's flicking on as well.

Congratulations.

I've got a bid out right now, but my bids will get more serious as time goes by and budget builds up.
