Speaking with my old band mate that co-owned it to see if he wants it. If not I'll repost.

Howdy there!! Easy way to get pix on the site in your situation is to upload your pix to an online photo hosting site, and then copy and paste the .img links that you're given! I'd certainly like to see your Raider as I've just not long finished a Raider rebuild myself!

Value is relative; I probably overpaid for mine, but I really wanted one, eh, and have done for years!
There's a late red Raider 2 on eBay at the moment which has been relisted twice now which could indicate the asking price is way too high....

For Sale Westone Raider 1 Bass Value Enquiry

Post by Microflora on Thu May 08, 2014 9:13 am

Hi there, thanks very much for getting back with a response so quickly. I did try a few things with the linking to a hosted folder on Imgur but as I've just registered tonight there was an automated response saying new users can't post external links for 7 days. I'll persist as I took some nice pics of it this afternoon. I neglected to mention that mine is the bass model too.

Hi Barry, thanks for your reply too. I figured it would be for a reason such as that. I totally get it and think it's a good idea. That's kind of you to post the link on my behalf. I'll PM you and if you have time I'd be very appreciative. What a nice place this Westone forum is.

Not uncontrollably, but undoubtedly twitching!

That's very nice indeed, and with its case in good nick! I wouldn't even like to to opine on the value; after all, it's only worth what someone's prepared to pay, eh?! A little glib, perhaps, but true!
Perhaps listing it on eBay with a high-ish reserve might shake something out??

Thanks guys. I've bought guitars from eBay before but never sold one there due to the commission issue. I guess I'll factor that into the price like everyone else does. Gumtree seems the place to be these days (though, obviously with a smaller reach than eBay).

I'll post the link once I put it online for your interest/scrutiny, and on the Buy/Sell Guitars Facebook group in Australia, too.

Cheers again.

Ok, I spoke with my mate about it and he has no interest in it, so I'm thinking I might list it for sale locally on Gumtree and perhaps Reverb.com in the next couple of days if anyone is interested.

Hello Microflora,

The Raider looks pretty tidy, nice one. How much are you asking for it?

Hi dustymiller,

To be honest, I'm trying to get an idea what it's worth. All I can tell is someone is advertising a case on eBay for US$195 but I don't know if that's unrealistic for a case with no guitar in it or not. This one has been in our circle of friends for many years and never really played. I guess I could put it up for auction and see what it brings but I don't really like the idea of listing something on eBay with no real idea of its value. PM me if you are interested or would give me an idea of what you reckon. I don't want to be one of those dickheads who lists something with an unrealistic price either. I do know that it's in excellent condition.

Thanks.
