    Yes, a Reclaimed Vela.

    But the one I want is for sale at double its original MSRP. Yes, double.

    Nope. Not a chance. Not gunna happen. I refuse.

    If you have one. Enjoy it. I'm jealous.

    The End

    At double the original price, I might have to think about mine. Not that I want it to go anywhere, but double?

    People are crappy. I get that it was a limited run but come on.

    I got one when they first came and wasn't a fan. I ended up selling on Reverb for just over what I paid, just enough to cover Reverb's cut.

    I did the same thing, on Reverb. I sold mine quickly, because it was the only one available that wasn't 150% (or more) of MAP.

    I lost no money on that flip, but didn't gouge anyone on the price. I broke even, give or take $7.00

    1: These are the kind of things you need to order when they are announced. (I know I did, thank you very much... :)
    2: Just because people are trying to sell them at ridiculous amounts doesn't mean anyone will ever pay that much.
    3: Stash some $$, put these on your watch list, be patient (the hard part...), and when one does pop up for a reasonable price, jump on it fast!

    All the use of the word "Double" in this thread made me kinda hungry...

    Double surprises me a bit.
    I think it’s a great guitar, but there are other really good limited runs that you’re lucky to get list for.

    That said, I think one belongs in the harem.

    And there we go. I'm NOT that guy. I sold the one I had for exactly what I paid for it brand new. I didn't jack up the price because I didn't want to be THAT guy.

    What's wrong with asking double? I don't get it. Who cares if he asks triple? Here's an idea:

    DON'T BUY IT.

    Go find another one.
