All of ours are new. When I bought the Tele in '06 it was a great value and still is. I didn't know enough about them to be comfortable buying a used one. The others we've bought since moving, and while I look at CL and FB marketplace every day, the market's small around here and people think asking full retail for used gear is standard. I guess there's enough dumb people with money to keep that going, but I've never seen a guitar locally that I would consider a good deal (except the Jaguar that came up the week after I bought mine). I dunno... I'm always a little uncomfortable in negotiations around money and don't haggle as a general rule.
