question on my FS item prices i want honesty

do i price it to high?

i know i put up 1 helmets and 3 guitars that had a price and everything else i put up was "make me an offer" (and i meant that litterly). but for those items i put up FS am i asking to much honestly? i do need the loot but at the same time i want to be fair on priceing. i would put being fair a higher priority then $$.

Not sure about the helmet but I'm guessing that not many people look at CLSB to purchase a guitar. Try craigslist.

The Les Paul is a little steep. They sell Limited Ed's new for around $450. I didn't see your other ads.

For current guitar prices go to samash.com and check out the prices.

Used prices may differ slightly, up or down, due to the brand, model or year. New model Epiphone guitars are generally much less expensive than Gibsons. The original Epi Casino hollow bodies are very desirable and expensive but very hard to come by.

Yeah, the issue with the guitars are that they are Epiphones instead of Gibsons. I know Gibson makes Epiphone, but you are prolly gonna need to lower the price a little to move them.

The Jackson is priced about right, but that guitar is only gonna appeal to a small portion of players, dropping the price prolly won't help move it. Just got to wait for right buyer to see it.

Hope that helps

I suggest putting a price on all the items (how much you hope to let it go for). Can't really tell the overall condition just by looking at the pics, so it's hard to make an offer. BTW, What do you think a fair price is on the black Astar gloves your selling?

This is what I do at CLSB when trying to sell something.

1) Think of a price that will make yourself feel ripped off.
2) Take that price and lower it about 5%.
3) Post it and guilt trip everyone that sees it.

It should sell fairly quick that way, it worked for me.

I have seen the gloves, but I am too afraid to insult you to make an offer. So, I think you should put some sort of starting price, like $xx.xx obo. That way you will get some negotiators.

thanks for the input ill look into sam ash. as for the other motorcycle stuff i was figureing id let the buyer offer that way the woudl hopefully start with a decent price then we could go from there or i can just take the offer. its all excess gear.
