Recently looked up some 90s and 00s Custom 24s and CEs to figure out if reverb or ebay asking prices are close to market. Seems like a lot of posted prices are on the higher end, but often don't sell at that price. A 2005 CE24 with buckle rash to the wood is now $950 after it didn't sell at $975. Based on blue book, that's the value without the rash. Blue book would put it at $750. So are buyers going to offer $750 because that's what Blue Book says, or is blue book pulling market info based on actual sales? I suspect it's a self-fulfilling prophecy. A mint 1996 Custom 24 10-Top on ebay posts $2,200 to $2,400. Blue Book has it at $2,350. It's not selling. I almost went for it, but the amber felt too dull and the pics weren't good enough to replace 'touch and see in person'.
