I have not decided yet but if I do it will be to someone in here. I dont have a clue what to ask so you might help me out. Value of a mint PE1000GC? Original cable in unopened plastic bag, also Aria Pro II strap in unopened plastic bag.

Urchin U-100 in original case. 9/10 condition. Maybe 8/10 if you are picky. Have not seen one in better condition.

What is an okay price? Im honest with you and expect todays market price. I havnt checked or been in the guitar world the last 7-8 years so Im pretty out of date. May also sell my JEM LNG #653 but thatone will probably go on e..y.

Mate, honestly, unless you're actually starving, I'd be hanging onto those two; you'll never find another, eh!!

I would hesitate to put a price on them as I don't feel qualified but the vintage guitar market is pretty slow at the minute, especially for non-American gear....

I concur with Corsair. I have sold a few in the past and not long after it regretted it. If I were still able to play I'd consider selling myself on a street corner before selling my guitars. The only downside would be I'm too ugly to attract many customers and some of the few I would get would likely destroy my interest in the feminine of the species. :rofl:

The thing is that Im in no need of money. Just have lost my interest in "the one with the most when he dies win" lol. Ill reconsider for a while. One day I have to sell anyway. I have 10-12 guitars so I will not be totally lost if some of them goes. I have an A-20 in mint also. Maybe that guitar is a more clever sell. Ill not miss it as I have another one. Not mint though but a great player.

Food for thought-why not offer to give some or all of these items away with a forum contest?

Not sure how it would work with this particular forum but I seen it done in other forums and it seems to work well.

Prices are very difficult to predict... I would guess somewhere close to 1000 USD (four digit numbers will scare some potential buyers). But selling is more a question of finding a buyer (something that's still much easier if it says Ibanez on the headstock for example).

At the moment I can't really justify buying a GC, but this is one of the absolute dream guitars for me.
It is so beautiful!!! And I have kept my eyes open for at least 10 years...

Don't know what I'm trying to say. Maybe trying to convince you to keep it....or to throw it at me :hyper:
