Is 400 a good deal for a black 6 string Venus? Not that I have the cash to purchase it anyway but someone here may be interested. I just wondered what the going rate for these is these days?

I'd pay 250, max.

That's like what, $850? Way too much.

I might consider that for a 12 String Venus, but only if its was mint and even then that's still too high.

Definitely too much. The to $ conversion ^ above isn't really worth taking into consideration, for the obvious reason that we're always bumped, rareish and used or not.

I'd agree with the 250 as a reasonable deal. Unlikely to ever find one for that though.

I don't think I've ever seen one for less than 350, I haven't got the money for it anyway so I definitely won't be going for it. It does look a very nice guitar though Smile

Lots of the Vista Series guitars are going for too much money right now because they are rare.

My Supersonic was 250 (albeit it was pretty beat up) but that's the price I'd expect to pay for a Vista. Some of the prices on these models are insane though.

I paid 200 for my Venus around a year ago. Well worth it. It has best neck of any of my guitars. If that was the 12-string version for 400 I'd be all over it.
