The same as any guitar, I'd say. The nicer it is, the more likely you are to get top of the 'current' price range. I probably sound pretty blasé about cost, but my own approach is to buy exactly what I want and then keep it forever. If this particular one feels good in your hands and you like the sound, I reckon that in two or three years you'll have forgotten the extra you spent, will be very happy with it, and won't want to resell. Now you're making me think about seeing that guy 45 minutes down the road about buying his mint b-bender.
