Am I asking too much?

    I am trying to sell my American Standard Channel Bound Telecaster in near mint condition for $920.

    It has 150 views, 9 watchers but no offers yet.

    Is $920 just too much? I thought I would be able to sell easily at that price :(

    What do youbthink should be the price? Seriously...

    Guitars are a lot easier to buy than they are to sell...

    Well, assuming that's your listing on Reverb...

    You only listed it 4 days ago, and it's between Christmas and New Years...

    I think people have other things on their mind right now, and even those that don't are probably all spent out...

    I'll also add...

    It's a bit of a specialty item, and the look and features might appeal to a smaller audience than your average American Standard buyer, who may not feel it's worth the premium...

    You are right, I guess my timing is really bad, everyone is as spent as me

    Folks to busy buying Triple Telecaster Classic Players for $379.00 I guess..

    But seriously, probably x-mas costs/bills are hamstringing your sale is the case.

    If it is the powder blue one, those are yummy. ;)

    +1

    I bought a Lamboo mint in the case used thinking for 750.00 I could not get hurt. But I could not get ride of it and did not bond with it. One of those 'specialty item' with minimal buyers perhaps as well. I traded it for a few other guitars I probably would not have paid 750.00 for...

    You might want to making the shipping free.Offering the Affirm won't hurt anything,as you get paid upfront.
    Did you pay for bumps?That helped me a great deal.I think that's a pretty good price from
    the looks of it.

    Thanks, good ideas.

    The listing was already bumped, will look into Affirm and will consider the shipping but that may be too much of a loss I am afraid.

    Just add the $30 or so that it actually costs to ship a guitar (assuming you have a box) to your asking price. People would rather pay more for the guitar than pay for shipping. It's not rational, but I've found that things sell on reverb a lot faster with free shipping.

    Create two more accounts, and start a bidding war with yourself.
    There's 'that guy' out there that would be more interested in winning against bidders that the object at hand.
