Steinberger XL-2 Bass (1985) Worth

Recommended Posts

Hello,

First post on the forum!

I'm wondering if anyone could shed some light on the value of this Steinberger XL-2?

The guy offering me this one says it is in mint condition and therefore want's £2000 for it.

I thought I'd better pass it by this forum full of clued up Steinberger owners before making

such a commitment.

 

I have attached photo's,

I think it is in very good condition for 1985.

 

Let me know what you think ASAP,

as I will be planning on travelling to see it this weekend hopefully.

 

Also, tips on what common things to check for before making an offer would be appreciated!

 

Kind regards

 

 

Steve

Hello Steve,

 

the bass is in good condition, but not a mint condition. The price - imho - is too high. The last two XL2s in similarly good condition went for about US$ 2,200 and $2,300, see here and here. GBP 2,000 is about US$ 3,000.

Before visiting this guy, you might want to visit the forum which really is full of clued up Steinberger owners. Which is not here ;)

Thanks for the reply Bernd!

I expected the offered price to be on the high side,

it's fairly obvious that a seller would try his/her

luck to see how much they can get for it.

Any sensible buyer would start low and see when an

agreement would fall into place.

 

Also thanks for sending me that link, I'm looking at

that site as I write this and will post a similar

topic on there just to get a few oppinons and some

good buying tips on what to look out for.

 

Thanks again Bernd, the help is greatly appreciated!
