Ok, where are folks finding these rubes, er, "knowledgeable buyers" who are forking out $900 or $775 for a '65 DRRI or PRRI in a private sale? And even if they were, why would a shop ascribe $900 in value to one, used? I would expect a shop to give maybe $400-500 credit towards getting a deal done, tops. They regularly sell them for $600-700 (if they are lucky) and have to carry them in the meantime. Maybe sitting next to a new one that can be had for $900 if Fender allows them to "demo" it because it's been sitting. @theprofessor - I do trade deals all the time. And I'm a cheap so-and-so. But time is money and lack of dealing with selling stuff directly has value apart from that to me as well.
