Gibson Gary Moore Signature 2013 Les Paul - Help Pricing

Recommended Posts

Good evening,

 

I would like to ask for some help to price my Gary Moore Signature Les paul 2013.

 

I have the original case and papers.

 

THe bad here it's 2 years ago had a headstock break....as many Gibsons before.

 

I took it to repair and the repairing itself it is super profesional, but...it's there.

 

I attach pictures.

 

My idea is if somebody would help me to price this guitar because i'm thinking on selling it. I live in Spain - Europe and the currency is €. My thoughts are bassed on the guitar as new costed 1700€ on 2013 and there are almost not guitar as this on the market the price would be near of 1200-1000€, but i would like to hear some profesional opinion.

 

THank you!

Less than half the going rate for one. If 1200 Euro, best you can hope for is 600. That's the best. There are too many guitars that aren't broken for someone to spend too much on one that is broken. My advice to anyone looking to buy that would be "Pass". So you are up against a pretty big hill there buddy.

 

Good luck with it. You might find exactly the right buyer that needs that exact guitar to fill a whole in their collection, and you could move it along. But it will take time and effort.

I would recommend that you just keep it -- Either that, or just be willing to accept a very low amount because you don't want to see it around any longer. This guitar is going to be a hard sell even at a very low price.

This is the best advise. I would keep it.

That thing's been rode hard and put up wet. I'm not an expert on headstock repairs, but of the ones I've seen, that looks questionable. I think you'll have a hard time selling it. I'd just keep it as a beater. Everybody needs one.

 

Who knows, maybe one day you'll want to express your inner Pete Townsend.

this is probably as "right" an answer as you'll get. Keep in mind a new tribute Les Paul will be around 1 grand (USD), so your competition on asking price used + repaired, is getting stiffer.

I was only kidding, of course. smile.gif

 

Actually, a guitar that looks like that should have some good stories to tell. At least, I hope so.

Yeah selling will be a chore. If its solid and you like it, play the c-rap out of it with reckless abandon. Its already been broken.
