Washburn D49CESPK spalted maple. What to sell for?
« on: November 08, 2017, 01:22:26 PM »
I have a friend interested in buying this D49 special edition that Washburn made. I can't remember what our church paid for it but it's got to go. But for how much?
It's in really good shape and playable.

There's little demand for good Washburns, especially in the local market (as opposed to online). My D-46CESPK is near-mint, & I'd take $450, but I'd likely wait months before getting any interest, & even then probably go below $400.

All in all, asking price depends what's more important: maximizing price, or moving it along in the foreseeable future. It's a flashy axe, so you might just have to do some fishing: "$500 or best offer, cash only." There's no law that says you MUST take the best offer, particularly if it's so low you'd rather just donate the guitar to Goodwill. :( You can always ratchetthe price down if you get tired of waiting, or contact the high bidder(s) to negotiate.
