PostPosted: Wed Mar 21, 2012 7:17 pm    Post subject: Price for my Coronado II Reply with quote

I'm starting to wonder if my Coronado is worth more in cash than it is to me to keep, but not really sure how much that is. It seems an odd question to ask because I've recently given a bit of advice out on the value of this sort of thing but when it's your own it can be more difficult to judge.

It's a Lake Placid Blue '67, great overall condition but there are some paint scratches by one of the pots and possibly a non-original bridge plate. No original case but I do have a Gator ES-335 case that is a good fit.

Not sure if I would want to sell it or not but I'm starting to consider it. What do you guys think it could fetch?

Some reminder photos

At least a first born child as well as a free taxi service on the next visit.... I can send the boy child or the girl child if you want (Darth Vader costume included)

This, and Fredo's starcaster, are my favorite guitars on shortscale bar none.....

If only I was not somewhat broke and in the middle of a nasty home remodel...

you crazy, jimby.

anyway, i can't remember exactly how much mine was, i think it was 1075 or something like that. obviously the bigsby on mine is non-original (not sure if that adds or subtracts value) and it doesn't have a pickguard. apart from that, ours are pretty similar, except LPB is more desirable than CAR to most people. i'd expect 1200 or so for yours.

I saw a mint scumburst one online last week, same checked binding etc for 1350. Don't sell it. It's a beauty.

I normally see Coronado IIs running the $1200- $1600 range. However, the LPB color makes me believe you could probably get more than that. You always see the red or sunburst models, but yours is seems pretty rare and should demand a little more, even with the paint scratches.

I am afraid you will regret selling such a beauty.

Fifty quid and that's my final offer.

Seriously, I wouldn't sell it. It's worth more in terms of work you'd have to do to replace it than what you would get for it, if that makes sense. Like, say you got x amount of money for it, well x wouldn't get you that guitar back, you'd need x plus plenty of time for looking and making sure it was the right one etc. There's that elusive rarity quality that adds a certain value to the guitar that can't be quantified. I think.

he's got a sonic blue one further down and a cherry red one for 1250.

however, dealer prices aren't street prices, and places on denmark street routinely add 100% on to the actual value of a guitar. if you want to know what something's worth, have a look on vintage and rare, half the price and bob's your uncle.

They don't put the prices on ANYTHING on the site! Drives me mad. Not that I could afford any of it, but still.

true, they used to though. there's a lot less interesting stock on their website these days. most of their stuff was on consignment anyway, people probably got pissed off waiting two years for a refin jag to sell at 2600.

It's not worth selling it right now.... no ones is buying, only selling.

Your money will go on a few bills and you'll have nothing to show for it.

if you aren't playing it and are thinking of selling it for the money, Put it in a hardcase with some cilia gel, hide it somewhere safe, and think of it like money in the bank. God knows it will appreciate quicker than if you had the cash.

If you sell it, you may fritter away the money at the pub or a few new shirts and this and that. Before you know it, the money's gone and you are left with nothing but your balls.

That guitar forces you to save a chunk of cash so that if you are ever stuck you have something of value. If you never get stuck, you have something you love that is also probably gaining in value over time, with more attention being paid to 60s Fenders. The jazz guys and hippies didn't care for them at the time, but meanwhile it's a fucking full length neck and dripping with exotic--especially LPB.

At the same time, if you never play it and worry about theft, you could always sell it, get a different guitar and pocket the difference. It's not much of an investment if you aren't happy with it.

I have TWO now. That's how much I like them. But both are refins.

Listen to Hurb. He has managed to swing two of the best guitars on the board, that bastard.

I have nearly come to selling my jag a couple of times in desprate times. I am on reflection soooo glad it never happened. It's not a guitar I play allllll the time but it's also a guitar I will never get again. vintage guitars are awesome pieces to own...not just musical tools. Unless your sonic youth I suppose.

I presume you're watching this guy

It's pretty similar to yours minus the scratches so you could use that as a ballpark.

I know where you're coming from if you don't play it a heap, but it would probably be silly to sell it unless you actually need to sink that money into something else as equally permanent and enjoyable.
