marco mancini Posted May 13 Share Posted May 13 hello there folks i would like to ask you an opinion on trade-in policies which some official gibson dealers have ; recently i have asked my dealer (an italian one gibson official ) to order an M2M gibson les paul custom (VOS not aged ) and i wanted to trade in a near mint Gibson les paul special Rick Beato https://ibb.co/F7xzcx8 https://ibb.co/9pj1vP3 The estimate for the les paul custom M2M was 7,149 euros but when i went there to trade in the Rick Beato he stated that the guitar was sold back then at 1.619euros which i didnt believe as the price list of Gibson was 1999 dollars https://www.strumentimusicali.net/product_info.php/products_id/161118/gibson-les-paul-special-double-cut-rick-beato-tv-blue-mist.html?keywords=gibson+les+paul+spoecial+rick+beato https://www.gibson.com/en-US/Electric-Guitar/USAQQJ682/TV-Blue-Mist and that i couldn't asked more as in reality i bought it to another official dealer for 1999 euros as more or less the price list of Gibson sold the guitar back then . Of course i told him that that kind of guitar , mint as it is , is sold right now at 2500 euros and i was ready to trade in the guitar only for for at least 2000 , for in any case i was prepared to add 5150 euros for a new gibson which is in any case is a great esbourse for a client of the brand long story short the dealer didn't accept the deal . Am i right to ask Gibson and signal the dealer in question or was he right not to accept the trade in ? cheers Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
