Washburn EA27 Gregg Allman Signature Model #67 of 150
« on: August 24, 2016, 06:21:27 PM »
I am wondering what this guitar is worth... is e-bay a good way to sell it?  There is prior damage (fret board was snapped off and professionally repaired 20 years ago).

Welcome to the forum.  Big City's price estimate is probably pretty good.  If the fretboard repair is clean and well done, nearly invisible then a 20-25% reduction in value is a good guess.  If it's more visible, cosmetically off, then you can probably expect a 50% reduction.

I don't have a blue book price for you but the following should give you some more guidelines.

EA20 X Melissa Limited Edition

Grading 100% Excellent Average
N/A $500 - 575 $300 - 350
Last MSR was $949.
This model was designed in conjunction with Greg Allman (Allman Brothers). It is estimated that only 500 instruments were built and each one is individually numbered.

Guys, thanks for all of the great information.  I really appreciate the time you spend in compiling messages and pictures. The Equis Silver pickup does not work, and it is OBSOLETE.

My figures:
 $300 ebay sale (well fixed neck break, non-working obsolete electronics.)
-  $30 ebay fee (10%?)
-  $30 paypal fee (10%?)
-$150 pack and ship ups
-  $50 insurance
=============
$40 Net... If I saw the guitar at a garage sale, I'd pay $40 for it!lol. :)
